SHARE YOUR HARD WORK WITH OUR MEMBERS.

Hello Ladies!

While we are all patiently awaiting a return to a more normal activity level, I have a proposition for you.

Since most of us will be sewing and quilting, why not share your efforts and hard work with other members.

Take pictures of what you are working on and we will have a DIGITAL SHOW AND TELL!!!!

Send pictures of your project to: huntingtonquilters@gmail.com.

Twice a week, I will post all the photos we receive. The first posting of our Digital Show and Tell will be Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

The second installment will be on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Please include some information with your photos. What do you call your project, etc. What special effect, treatment of quilting design did you use!

Let’s share our creativity with our other members.

HONEY BEE RAFFLE AT THE MARCH 3, 2020 MEETING

Hello all my fellow Quilty friends,

On behalf of all the members and myself who were at our HoneyBee Raffle night, I would like to give a HUGH shout out to Brigitte M. for a wonderful job well done.

To Anne M. for the use of her home and to everyone on the committee who helped put together and wrap those amazing baskets!  To everyone who came early and set up tables and stayed late to take them down. Without everyone’s participation, these events would not be possible!!

Brigitte and her committee worked hard and did a wonderful job making all our donations look like they just came out of a quilt shop!! Congratulations to everyone who won!

By the comments and faces upon leaving the meeting, I would say “ A Good Time Was Had By All” I know I enjoyed myself!

We have an amazing group of talented ladies! A delicious spread of goodies made possible through our Hospitality Committee, who could ask for anything else!

Hope to see many of you at our Quilt Camp!

Thank you again, Michelina,
Program Chairperson

Storage & carrying are impossible for us, so we are asking everyone to please take fabric home. Please bring your rotary cutter, mat & scissors to cut squares, triangles, etc. to bring home giving you a head start on your quilt.

HONEY BEE RAFFLE – Bridgette M….. March 3, 2020. On January 9, the honey bee volunteers flocked to assemble the Honey Bee Raffle Baskets at Anne Meyer’s home. I arrived at ten and was the last one to show up! Slews of homemade desserts decorated the kitchen table. Anne, Mickey, Karen H, Karen W., were already sorting the donations received on Tuesday, January 7. Carol N. was diligently sorting through scraps. Bette was arranging the books. Lorraine L and Sachiko were busy wrapping baskets Anne and I previously assembled. Prior to arriving Carol S a new member wondered why it would take the greater part of the day to prepare the baskets then she saw the amount of fabric and donations piled high on the tables and realized we might need a second day! Anne Marie K was lugging bags from her huge, wonderful suburban and supporting anyone who needed her to lend a hand! The team worked like a well-oiled sewing machine! I believe Santa and his elves would have been impressed! At lunchtime, Anne and Rich Meyer treated all of us to delicious grandma’s pizza. By 2 o’clock, I had to run out and purchase more cellophane and we were decorating boxes with home-dec fabric because we ran out of baskets! By four o’clock, we were running out of steam but Carol N was still diligently adoring the baskets with beautiful handmade bows. It is an understatement to write “their participation is greatly appreciated”. If I forgot to mention somebody I apologize and thank you for your efforts. All in all, we generated 72 baskets! We are in a really good position to have a fantastic raffle event. Please come by on Tuesday, March 3 and have some fun! Warmly, Brigitte

OPERATION VERONICA – Lucille…. Thank you for all of your generous donations. The donation box will be located next to the Membership Table.
