MEMBERSHIP FAT QUARTER RAFFLE….There will NOT be a Fat Quarter Raffle at our June meeting. Thank you Janice and Sue for organizing this monthly raffle and for all your hard work with membership.
OPERATION VERONICA…. Janet Godfrey from Operation Veronica and I would like to thank all the Guild members for their generous donations over the last months. The many donations of food, supplies and about 80 pillowcases were sent to our active service members serving overseas. If you need a quick project to do over the summer, think of making a pillowcase. Any fabric as well as patriotic can be used. If you need a flyer with the donations list or pillowcase instructions, I’ll have some at the June meeting.
Thanks again! Lucille I.

THIS AND THAT….
FABRIC SALE – SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 2018 – We are helping a quilter’s family deal with the loss of their loved one. A devoted quilter who left us way too early. There are many beautiful, high quality fabrics for sale at wonderfully discounted prices. This sale is being held at Michelina Maguire’s home from 8:30 AM to 2PM. This event, while not a guild event, is open to all of our members. All proceeds of the sale will go directly to the family. Won’t you come and see what’s available for sale.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members for your continued support and help this past year! It’s been a year of learning new things and enjoying time spent in the company of you wonderful Ladies! I am looking forward to what we have in store for the next year!
As always, if you have any questions over the summer break, you can contact the board members at Huntingtonquilters@gmail.com . I will try my best to get you an answer to your inquiries as quickly as possible.
I hope you enjoy your summer and look forward to seeing all of you in September!
Bye for now,
