President’s Message – 04/24

2024-04-01T08:19:30-04:00Member Showcase, President's Message|

March Lecture by Daisy Dodge

Flowers are blooming and so is our guild.  This is our busy season with many exciting things happening.

We hope you are all putting the finishing touches on your quilts for what we expect is going to be a fantastic quilt show. Don’t forget to sign up to volunteer at the show.  We ask that all members sign up for at least one 2-hour slot.  You will receive one free admission (maximum 2) for every two hours that you work.  For those of you entering a quilt for the first time to our show, please remember your quilts need a sleeve on the back and a number in the corner which you will receive in the mail.  Quilt drop off is April 27th.  Please refer to the website for any questions and more information.

The Lancaster bus is half full with seats going fast.  Right after the April meeting, we will be opening seats to non-members.  If you plan on joining our quilt trip, please get your money in now.

Looking forward to seeing you at our April meeting.

Sheryl and Helen, president@northernstarquilters.com

Welcome back to in person meetings. We look forward to seeing you at Fox Lane on Wednesday March 20th at 6pm.

We are busy!  If you are involved in a SIG, those meetings are underway.  If you are interested in joining a SIG, the guild meeting is a perfect place to learn more about them. Hopefully the SIGs and workshops have given you inspiration and you are getting quilts ready for our show the first weekend of May.  Quilt drop off is April 27th! Please remember that quilt registration is now open to non-members so if you would like to show any quilts, please register ASAP so you can be assured that there is room.

If you are planning on joining our Lancaster trip scheduled for September 13-14, please remember to bring a check to register.

We have booked an additional free workshop for ALL our members.  On March 9th, there will be a three hour Zoom workshop with Luke Haynes and Nicole Leth on typography in quilts and Nicole’s Affirmation project.

Looking forward to seeing all of you,

Sheryl and Helen, president@northernstarquilters.com

Here’s hoping that the cold weather has given you lots of time for quilting.

Remember our Quilt show is only 3 months away!

Exciting news.  Our wonderful trip to the Lancaster Quilt show is back! Our new trip coordinator, Christine Bunke, has been hard at work organizing and making plans for the bus and hotel stay.  She has arranged for stops at 3 quilt shops along the way. Please see further information in the newsletter.  We expect to sell out so if you are interested, please contact Christine asap and get your name on the list.

Just a reminder that our February meeting is Wednesday the 21st at 6pm.  Ann Johnston is our speaker. The meeting will again be on  Zoom and you will all be receiving the link a few days before.

If you are new to the guild, the best way to meet everyone is to come to our meetings and get involved.  Starting March we are back in person at Fox Lane HS.

Happy quilting!

Sheryl and Helen, president@northernstarquilters.com

Barbara Glab’s Holiday Trunk Show

2024 is starting off with a bang!

We have a number of new events being planned for the new year. Our established Improv SIGs have become so successful that we are introducing a third new group. Please contact Rita Romeu if you would like more information.  An event that you are not going to want to miss is our new bus trip to the Lancaster Quilt show.  In previous years this was one of our most successful events and we are so excited to be bringing it back.   Mark your calendar for Friday and Saturday, September 13th and 14th. Christine Bunke is graciously chairing this event.  Our Super Saturday classes are filling up but there are still a few openings if you would like to join us.  More activities details in the Latest News section.

Just a reminder that the January and February meetings are by Zoom.  You will receive an email invitation a couple days beforehand so you can easily log on! You do not need to dress for this meeting!

Wishing you all a healthy and happy New Year.

Sheryl and Helen, president@northernstarquilters.com

Quilt Retreat at Mariandale

Happy Holiday Season! We can’t believe it’s December already and we are looking forward to our holiday party on Wednesday December 13th.  Note, one week earlier than usual.

Bring a plateful of holiday cookies to share and a container to take home extras and enjoy a trunk show by member Barbara Glab.

Looking towards the future, please remember that our meetings in January and February will be on Zoom.  You will be sent the access link a couple of days before.

If you have been missing our meetings, please check out our workshops, Super Saturday, and other activities later in this newsletter and on the website.

Though May seems far away, our quilt show is right around the corner.  We are still missing two chairs for admissions and quilt handler.  Please, please consider by yourself or with a friend taking on one of these positions.  We cannot have a quilt show without them!

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday. See you on the 15th!

Sheryl and Helen, president@northernstarquilters.com

The CQ raffle raised $330 to help support Comfort Quilts.

Dee Rizzo chose her own quilt. Jody Sullivan’s choice was by Joyce Sullivan. Mary Rossetti chose JoAnne Hochstein’s.


With our guild now in full swing at our new home, we hope you are  enjoying our meetings as much as we are.  Little by little we are ironing out the minor problems that arose with the new change of space.

We look forward to welcoming Cindy Grisdela at our November meeting.  Her lecture will be followed by a workshop.  We look forward to seeing and hearing many of her new ideas and techniques.

And speaking of techniques, Fran Jacobson will be chairing a Special Interest Group for beginner quilters.  Please check with Fran for more details.

At our last meeting Comfort quilts had a wonderful raffle from their summer challenge.  Comfort quilts under Karen Carlson’s and Carol Auer’s leadership, sews quilts for those in need.  If you are free on Wednesdays join them at the North Salem Ambulance Corp.  Please see our website for more details.

And as always please read the entire newsletter and check our website.  There is a wealth of information right at your fingertips on all our future activities.

Hope to see you on November 15th.
