This is a reminder that our next general meeting will be this Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 7 – 9 pm. Social hour starts at 6 pm.
The Sew and Know table will demonstrate “How to Bag Your Quilt” for the Quilt Show during happy hour.
Please remember to wear your nametag to be eligible for a door prize.
Bring your membership application and dues, if you have not turned them in yet.
For the Quilt Show bring in your comfort quilts. We also need lottery tickets, fat quarters, American Girl items and silent auction items.
Penny raffle baskets and white elephant stuff can be brought to the meeting too if the members can’t bring them to the Thursday morning set up.
The New Raffle Quilt will travel to Nashua to the Connection festival.
Please sign up to sit at the Raffle Quilt table at the September meeting.
There is a board meeting scheduled for September 6, 2017 starting at 7:00 pm. Meeting to be held at West Congregational Church, Room 201.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and gearing up for our Quilt Show and new season!
On and after August 15 you may register for the guild’s fall retreat at the Franciscan House in Kennebunk, ME. The retreat is scheduled for November 1-5, 2017.
The registration form and room rate chart are available here. Print a copy of the form and return it to Sue’s address with your CHECK FOR THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE.
To participate, you must be a paid-up member of the guild, as of Sept 2017. If the retreat fills before your registration is received, your name will be placed on a wait list in the event of cancellations.
You may register for the full four nights or for a shorter stay.
As the summer winds down, the Quilt Show is just around the corner. The Silent Auction table is looking for donations of handmade items to fill its table. Small items – placemats, pillows, table runners, decoration and the like are greatly appreciated. Please contact Gail Forthoffer and let me know what to expect. I will be collecting these at the September meeting. Thank you for your generosity!
