Quilt Challenge 2019

Posted on Updated on

Hello Quilters,

We were excited to see so many interested parties for the 2019 quilt show challenge. It is an applique (machine or hand) project which features the Rose of Sharon as the subject of the challenge. It can be executed anyway in a 24×24 inch piece and must use (somewhere in the quilt) the fabric which we have chosen. I have two pieces left so if interested please contact me at mskqlt@verizon.net for the fabric and the directions for the challenge.

Thank you all for your participation,
Layne Rando and Marianne Karp

UFO Auction Donations at tonight’s meeting.

Posted on

If you are bringing donations for the UFO auction this evening, please keep in mind that the weather forecast is calling for downpours.  I do not want the people who are collecting your donations to stand out in the parking lot.  Therefore, please bring your donations into the meeting.  There will be a couple of tables set up to collect your donations.  Please place your donations in plastic containers or large garbage bags as the two trucks we have are open and do not have cabs on them.  If you are planning on bringing large objects, such as furniture, please consider calling Stacey Caruso and Sue Spinelli to arrange a pick up/drop off at another time instead of bringing them this evening.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you!

Liz Swan, President

We will also be collecting additional donations.

Thank you to all that have volunteered.  The church rescheduled due to another commitment and we hope that you can still join us.
