WEEKLY UPDATE – JUNE 1, 2021

Good Morning to All My Quilty Friends!!

I will say it took a long time for me to stop smiling after our Party Meeting on Tuesday evening!!

Our hospitality committee did an amazing job as usual with refreshments, table and paper goods.  Thank you to Joan C. and Diane M.

Thank you to Ginger B, for the herb planters, they were adorable!

To all our committee volunteers, that work so hard to keep us entertained!

Lucie, for taking care of our funds.  Lucille I. and Laura L. Membership.  Marian S. and Alice Z. for Block of the month.  Maggie S. and Jen F. our book raffle.

Linda R. Trish M for our Pro Bono! To our webmistress/Facebook and photographer, Kathy K. and to our editor, Michele M.

Thanks to Dennis M. for helping out with set up and take down!  To all of you who came early and stayed late to help with set up and clean up!!

None of this would be possible if we all did not contribute in some form or fashion!

I think that was the most fun most of us has had in a long time!  I was so happy everything went as planned and thrilled to see everyone enjoying themselves!  I hope each and every one of you had as much fun as I did!!  There were also so many new faces that have come out to join us,  it was just wonderful!!

The pizza was purchased at Rocco’s pizzeria on Broadway/Greenlawn Rd.  They opened recently and I thought they could use the business.  The pies were delicious and he gave us an amazing price of $10. Per pie. 

The ice cream truck was Ellen M. idea.  I must say that was the highlight of the evening!  Big shout out “Thank You” to her!

I think we will all revisit new ideas for our June and December parties when we go back in September.

I want to take a moment to REALLY THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!

Everyone thinks being President is such a big undertaking or too much work.  I have volunteered at almost every position but being President has been the most fun I have had being a part of the Huntington Quilter’s ever! 

I say that from the bottom of my heart!  I have really gotten to know women I would not have had the pleasure to meet.

Keeping all of you informed and busy though this pandemic has helped me keep my mind busy and involved as well!!

I can’t say it enough how proud and blessed I feel to be among such a lovely, talented group of ladies!!

When I came home, I took those God, awful shoes that were killing me off and sat on the recliner and went through all my blocks!

They are just adorable!  I tried to match some of the blocks to faces, others came with hints as to who made them and yet some came with lovely notes!  I can’t wait to put them all together!  Thank you, Kathy for organizing such a thoughtful gift and to all of you for participating!!  I really appreciate each and every one of you and I’m grateful to call you my friends!!

I called Jane on Wednesday to let her know it was our group who left the items for the food pantry as a token of appreciation and to help those in the community. She was wondering where they came from. Thanked us all and was very appreciative!

The membership committee have already collected dues from some of you who just can’t wait to sign up for this amazing guild!

You may mail your checks for $30. For the 2021-2022 year to Lucille I.

You can find her contact information in you membership list.

I forgot to mention, Michele M. received notice that the fair out east in September, where she sells tickets for our raffle quilt, will be available to us.  That’s great news!!

The Patriotic fabric swap was a success as usual!  The packets will be available for pick up next week.  You can call me to make arrangements or you can pick them up at my house on June 15, Tuesday {I think} at 1:00 P.M.  that is the next “Plat Day”  I do hope you can join us.

I hope to have them every other Tuesday for the summer!

If anyone has an idea for the next fabric swap, please let me know.

Florence Bavarian, who sells the antique and feedsack fabrics will be at the Northport Antique market this Sunday if anyone is interested.

They are open outdoors the first Sunday of the month through October.

I think that’s all I have to share with you for now.  I hope you have a healthy, happy beautiful summer.  Make up for lost time!!

Thank you again to all of you!
