Reminders for June 2016

Reminders for the June Meeting:

Not Too Early to Think About Membership Renewal for 2016-17

Bette and Rosy urge HQ members to RENEW EARLY for 2016-17! Please consider bringing your membership renewal materials to our JULY MEETING so the September rush can be avoided. Alternatively, mail your check and membership form to Rosy before September.

Make your check for $30 payable to Huntington Quilters and bring it in July (or send it to Rosy before September) along with your completed membership form which you can download and print from our HQ website.

Need your photo taken? See Rosy at the July meeting.

Pillowcases for Soldiers:

Lucille and Gilma will be collecting patriotic pillowcases for our soldiers at the November meeting.  Making these pillowcases will be a great summer project!

Quinipet November Retreat:

The dates for the November retreat to Quinipet are extended.

The retreat will begin on Thursday, Nov 10th (dinner is the first meal), then includes Friday and Saturday, with breakfast on Sunday, the 14th.  There are still some spaces available. We will be using both houses (Asbury and Bobilin).  The cost is $200 because of the extra day.  Those who have already paid should give me an additional $25.

Pro Bono Quilts:

Mickey will not be bringing fabric or batting to the June meeting, but will be accepting quilts, so please bring them if you have them

Reminders for April 5 Meeting

Reminders for April 5 Meeting:

The 15” Quilt Block Challenge is due at the April Meeting!  Remember- You must use a visible amount of the fabric that was provided in your quilt. Any design, technique is acceptable. It must be a finished quilt with batting and backing. Please put a sleeve on the back of it so we can display it.

It’s also the HONEY BEE RAFFLE- so bring your cash and win some baskets!

April Fools! That’s our fat quarter theme this month. Bring some April Foolish fabric–a fun and funky novelty FQ that makes you smile–and pick up a raffle ticket when you sign in at the Membership table. You could win a pile of smiles!

WOW! HQ now has 124 members! Do you know all their names? Of course not, so that’s why it’s so important for you to wear your name tag to each meeting. When you wear it, you’ll get a raffle ticket at sign in for a chance to win some fabric.

The volunteers were really busy getting those baskets together – don’t you wish you could peak inside them?

Emmet supervised, and made sure all the baskets were wrapped and ready to go for our meeting on Tuesday!
