Are you ready to continue having fun? We have a great month ahead of us with the Central IL Quilt Shop Hop beginning on Oct 1 for the whole month, Jane Sassaman lecture by Zoom and workshop on Saturday and we end the month with our quilt show. Please contact Karen Goloff, Gwynne Bettish or myself if you have completed a quilt and you want to add to our show. The deadline was extended a bit. I am pleased with the communication I have received with ideas, questions, and concerns of our members. The is no dumb question and never a concern to address an issue. Keep up the great work and let’s have fun!
I will be sending out a Zoom invite Tuesday Oct 5. The meeting can be attended in person at the church or from your home. Our speaker is not traveling so that is why. We can socialize at the church for those that like to be in person. Another order of business for this month is an open floor discussion on the proposed By Laws changes. Be prepared to ask your questions and or state your concerns. A member vote will occur at the November meeting. You must be a member on Oct 1 to vote.
I believe that is all the news for today. Now, let’s go have some fun.
Stormy Dawn Helton
The Show is quickly approaching. Just a reminder that the show dates are Friday, October 29th from 9am to 5pm and Saturday, October 30th from 9am to 4pm. We need your quilts for the show. So far we have only received 3 entries. The entry form is included with the newsletter and is also available on the website. Please consider entering at least one quilt for the show. Again, we are still asking for donations for the Unique Boutique and fat quarters for door prizes. If you have any donations please let me know and I will make arrangements to pick them up, or you can bring them to a guild meeting

Revised By Laws Available for Review
The Board of Directors approved the handing out of the proposed changes to our Bylaws at their last meeting. This information will be handed out to our members at the end of the meeting for you to review over the next month, with a vote to be conducted in November. Please take the time to read it. If you have any questions, call an Executive Board member, or e-mail them or come in Nov with your question(s).
Normal Library Art Gallery
Beginning October 3 and continuing through mid-November, HAAQG will have a quilt display in the Art Gallery of Normal Public Library on College Avenue.
These beautiful quilts are just a few of many created by guild members. Others may be viewed at the 2021 Quilt Spectrum in late October. The display will promote our mission statement of fostering quilting in the community and surrounding areas. Everyone who contributed one or more quilts will have one on display.
There will be orphan blocks to touch and free magazines for patrons to take. The display will also advertise our show –No UFO’s Left Behind!
Be sure to visit Normal Public Library.
And if you have magazines to share, please bring them to the October meeting.
