Goodbye to hot Summer and hello to fall. Fall is a great season, it is so full of colors that end up in our quilts, wall hangings and table runners. Fall allows us to enjoy the outdoors with its pleasant weather and still allows us time to sew.
With the changing of the seasons, I see a change in the guild. We are starting our daytime guild meetings this month on Sept. 20. We will be meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month from 11 am to 2 pm, with a break for lunch. Masks are optional, we will leave it up to you to decide.
This month we have 3 members that will share their quilt journey with us. Thanks to Deborah Sweeney, Mandy Robinson and Sharon Hedrix for presenting their quilts and quilting projects.
We still have empty positions for the Guild Board for 2022. We are still looking for these positions: President, Vice President Membership, Vice President Programs and Community Service. These positions will lead us into a new year of opportunity and serving our community. If the guild has no leadership, where will we be next year? Will we remain an active guild with programs or change to a friendship group? It is up to the members to decide on this.
Our next Community project will be place mats for Meals on Wheels. We have lots of 5 inch squares if you would like to sew some into mats,
Don't forget your Show and Tell projects.
We will have a sign up sheet for the Christmas lunch. The price went up this year , so let us know if you would rather have a pot luck dinner at the church.
The October 18th speaker is Claudia Wood, an Art Quilter..
See you at the guild meeting.
