|Hello My Quilty Friends!! |
I would like to go over a few things before the September meeting! The “Play Date” at my house will be MONDAY, AUGUST 23 @ 1:00 pm.
I’ve changed it due to a Dr. appointment on Tuesday. I hope you can make it, it will be the last one before the monthly meeting. After that the play dates will be monthly, two weeks after each meeting. Looking forward to seeing you, I hope you can make it!
The meeting is Tuesday, September 7th 2021 at 7:30 PM.
There will be information from the Raffle Committee in the newsletter regarding set up and help out. Many Hands Make Light Work!! Bring lots of dough!! There will be so many wonderful items to choose from!!
The church pastor is away. As soon as he returns, they will be having a meeting regarding protocol. Masks, food etc. As soon as I find out anything I will pass it on to everyone. The food pantry is always in need of non-perishable items. They were so grateful with everyone’s generosity from the June meeting.
Membership has received several checks in the mail. Beat the rush at the September meeting and mail your check to Lucille I., our membership chairperson.
To date, we have sold approximately 40 tickets to our annual Quilt Raffle fund raiser. We are all required to purchase tickets. Please contact Lucie if you would like to do so by mail. I will have the list of titles for our name that quilt contest up on the bulletin board, just put a check mark in the box with the name you like. They will be counted and a winner will be chosen.
Our September/October newsletter will be sent shortly. Please forward any information you would like to share with everyone to our editor, Michele M.
Judy K. will be joining forces with Marian S. for our Block of the Month.
Barbara O will be joining Jen F. for our Book Raffle. They have changed it up a bit. You are now able to choose which book you would like to win!! Great Idea!!
Gift Camp is still looking for teachers!! I can’t stress enough how important it is to help out and volunteer!!! They only have three teachers for the morning and three for the afternoon. I am certain that so many of you have some project that would make a lovely Holiday Gift and doesn’t require too much time or effort! Won’t you PLEASE offer to help out??? Contact Dale S. or Lauren G.
Don’t forget your Pro-Bono’s!! we are obligated to provide at least one quilt per year. Our chairwomen, Linda R. and Trish M. have collected all summer and delivered many beautiful quilts to some very grateful recipients!
The Huntington Historical Society Apple Festival is being held Sunday, October 24th 2021 at the Kissan House Properties. They are located across from the Huntington Cinema Arts Theatre. The Huntington Quilters will have a table demonstrating some of our talents. Lucie B. and Michele M. will be there. I will as well. If you would like to participate and demonstrate something or just help out, please let Lucie or myself know. You can do two hour shifts of your choice. If you would like to sell something while you are helping out, you may. Just donate a small percentage to the Historical Society. If you would like a table to sell only, please contact Lucie B. Lucie has sent out information regarding our November retreat. If you have any questions, feel free to contact her.
I think that’s all for now. Can’t wait to see everyone!! Michelina Maguire
