DECEMBER 3, 2019 MEETING – THE HOLIDAY FESTIVITIES!!!

Hello Ladies!

Okay, it’s time to go dig out your cars and make your appetizers and desserts for the Huntington Quilters Guild Holiday Party! I will be going outside shortly to clear off my car.  Fortunately, we did not receive the amounts of snow that were forecast.

Remember if you are participating in the gift exchange or the ornament exchange, your gift item should be festively wrapped for presentation. The holiday ornament should be placed inside a brown paper bag.

The Raffle Quilt – Scrap Happy with a Twist will be raffled off this evening.  My sincere thanks to all who helped sell the raffle tickets.

Stay safe, stay warm and see all of you at this evenings festivities. The hall will be open at approximately 6pm for set up. See you there!

SEPTEMBER 3, 2019 MEETING REMINDER

Hello Members,

Welcome back to the Huntington Quilters Guild.  It nice to be back from a quiet summer vacation.  I hope you enjoyed you summertime as well.

This is your September 3, 2019 Meeting Reminder.  The first meeting of our new year will be held at Christ Lutheran Church Hall, located at Burr Road and Larkfield Road, in East Northport.  The meeting starts at 7:30 pm, but the hall is always open earlier for set up.  Won’t you try to stop down a bit early and help us set up for our meetings.

There are lots of good things to update and many changes being made within the guild.  New Board members and committee chairs are working hard to make your guild experience fantastic!

Our newest slate of officers for 2019 – 2020 are as follows:

PRESIDENT – Hilory B.
SECRETARY – Victoria G
TREASURER – Lucie B.

MEMBERSHIP – Lucille I. and Laura L. – The Membership Application has been updated and is located on the website, under the Membership tab.  Click on the link and print out the application and bring it with you to the September 3rd meeting along with your dues.

HOSPITALITY – Joan C. and Diane M…..Hi Ladies – Thanking you in advance for your desserts & goodies at our monthly meetings. If you get a request card and can’t make the meeting ask a friend to help out with a dessert.  Thanks, Joan & Diane, Your Hospitality Committee

PROGRAMS – Michelina M….Hi Ladies,  I will be your program coordinator for the next two years. We have some exciting speakers and classes to offer you! I hope everyone is as excited as I am! I have a tough act to follow, Jean, Alison and Liz, who have done an amazing job for the last four years!!

I am trying to get speakers that offer something for everyone. Your participation is key!!! I don’t expect everyone to sign up for every class, but we are a large group of members and if we come to at least one class, that will make for good attendance!!  I already have a program or speaker lined up for every month in the 2019-2020, also for September and October of 2020.

For our September program. It is usually a business meeting, especially with a new board coming in. So, we will do a UFO challenge. I would like for anyone who wants to participate, to find 5 UFO’s. write the name of each one on a piece of paper, one through five. Make two copies. One for you and one for me.  I will pull a number and you have two months to complete that UFO. Of course, a prize will be given.   It’s a game someone recommended to me. It’s sometimes done every month but I thought that would be too much pressure.  Let’s see how many participants we can get!! Let’s get some of those UFO’s completed!!

ALSO! 2020 is a Honeybee Raffle Year!! Looking for a chairperson to run this committee! Remember, as soon as someone puts their hand up and volunteers, many hands go up to help!! All we need is that ONE brave sole!!

Thank you!!  Looking forward to seeing everyone in September!!
Yours truly, Michelina Maguire
