June season-ending wrapup

At our June and December meetings every year we celebrate with a pot luck supper.  I was too concerned about filling my plate to get a photo of the contributions to our expanding waistlines, so you will have to use your imagination.

We had lots of entries to the Christmas in June challenge.  The gals who signed up received a fat quarter of Christmas fabric and had to bring a completed project to the June meeting.  This is a small sampling of the items.

These are two of our hard working volunteers - Jane runs the charm swap, and Lynne takes care of our raffle prizes.  That was one heck of a gift basket that was up for grabs.

  • Even though our meetings are suspended for July and August, allowing us all to relax by the pool (pfftt - I wish!!) we still have sewing days.  You are welcome to come out on Wednesday July 10th and Wednesday August 14th - hours are from 9 am until 4:30 pm.  Bring your project and $5 to cover the rent.  It's nice to keep up with our quilting buddies during the summer.
  • I am organizing a road trip to Caledonia, NY to the quilt show of our recently discovered sister guild.  Their show will be held on August 17 & 18.  I have two groups - one planning an overnight stay in NY and the other as a single day trip.  A reminder will go out to our guild members in early August in case you have not signed up yet.
Our regular meetings resume in September and will be held on the 2nd Wednesday as usual.  Daytime sewing is encouraged for all who can join us, supper catered by the church ladies at 6 pm if you would like to eat someone elses cooking for a change, and our scheduled meeting with program at 7:30.
