There’s less than 2 weeks before our quilt show! We have lots of things that are needed and we need your help.
- Please make a quilt to donate to our charity project, Maris Center in Salisbury, which houses women in transition and will gladly accept quilts of any size.
- Please make a small item for the Silent Auction. All of the Silent Auction revenue will be donated to Pettengill House. This charity provides food for the hungry in our community.
- Please bring fat quarters, American Girl outfits and lottery tickets to the meeting so that we can prepare those items for the penny raffle.
- White Elephant items and completed raffle baskets will be accepted at the meeting on the 21st and on the morning of Thursday the 28th during setup.
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.
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!
