The date for the May Salad Supper has been changed from Thursday May 2, 2019 to Thursday May 7. The change was necessary to be able to prepare for Quilt Spectrum which will be on May 4th and 5th.
To anyone who has already volunteered or is interested in volunteering for the 2019 Quilt Spectrum, there will be an informational meeting held before the regular guild meeting at 5:30 PM on September 6 at the church. If you are interested but cannot attend, please send an email to me, Gwynne Bettisch at firstname.lastname@example.org and express your area of interest. We have some exciting changes to share. Thank you.
Our guild is large and has many wonderful groups from which to choose. Whether you are a new member or have been in the guild for many years, you are welcome to come to the mentor class and meet quilters who enjoy quilting and learning new skills just like you.
PLEASE NOTICE WE HAVE CHANGED THE MENTORING CLASSES

Creative sacks of scraps will be ready for you to pick up at the Community Services table at the September meeting. Simple instructions! So it can be more fun for us all

A new year of giving and receiving is about to being by offering our labors of love to groups and individuals within our community. This summer we received two large donations of fabric and other quilting goods. Ruth Pfaffmann’s family friend, Glenn Hill, gave a very large donation of material in June. His wife had died earlier in the spring and he gave her collection of fabric to several groups. The part we received was distributed at the June retreat. He would very much enjoy a note of thanks from some of our members to express their appreciation and what the material was used for. We also received a second donation of material, patterns, and magazines from a different person who has chosen to ‘downsize’ her sewing stash.
The Community Project Committee will again this year, collect similar projects as last year plus maybe a few new ones after we research them a little more. The pillow cases, Cancer Comfort Quilts, Baby Quilts, Fidgit Quilts, Receiving Blankets and Burp Cloths, and Valor Quilts will continue to be collected. This gives you a choice of a project for you to work on. Please pick up a handout at the Community Projects Table with all the sizes and descriptions of each project.
Our first large need is the same as last year. Nancy Stone is again collecting quilts for the ‘Children without Beds’ in our community. In September and October, we hope to collect 60 children’s quilts 70” X 90” approximately. If you have additional material that matches the quilt, consider adding a pillow case with your gift. We already have 5 quilts toward our goal. ALL projects to be turned in these 2 (two) months, we would like you to KEEP with you at the meeting and show them ALL at one time when announced, then bring to the tables for drop off. Hopefully this will be a united way to show your support for community projects and also speed up our part of Show-n-Tell.
Thank you for your help ahead of time, in this new ‘giving’ year. Besides Carol Lou and myself, several other women have volunteered to be available as committee project helpers, Bev Elder, Kathy Hatch and Aleta Batty.

The Friday, Sept 7th workshop with Jill Finley from Jillily Studios is "Pedal Pusher". It is a quilt with a lovely large appliqued center block that can be used in the quilt provided in the pattern or used on it's on in a wall hanging or other project of your choice. This is a perfect project if you would like to learn Jill's applique technique but not be committed to a large quilt if you choose to do something else. The pattern is $12. Please contact Carol Faye to register.
