Welcome back! As you may remember, each month a select group of members is asked to provide snacks to add to the hospitality table. Hospitality will provide tea, coffee, and water, as well as plates, napkins, and cutlery. For September, we ask the members whose last names begin with A and B to bring in a snack for the meeting. This represents about 20 members bringing snacks for the group. We would suggest snacks like pre-cut fruit, cake, cookies, cheese and crackers, or vegetables. Thanks so much for planning ahead!
(When you drop off your snack, be sure to pick up your free raffle ticket.)
Jack’s Chain: Mary Cannizzaro, our Raffle Coordinator, will be unveiling our exquisite charity quilt for the 2019 Quilt Show at the September Guild Meeting. This year will be a special time since we will be celebrating the Guild’s 40th anniversary.
Also at the September meeting, Mary will be raffling the Table Runner that was exhibited as a model of the charity quilt. Members eligible for this prize are those that worked on the quilt, about 50 members.
Comfort Quilts Winter Schedule at North Salem has started.
All Guild members, novices to experts, are invited to join Comfort Quilts. While making attractive quilts to donate to those needing comfort, you will have the opportunity to work alongside other quilters, get help and even inspiration.
2020 Show Charity Raffle Quilt: Pat Julian, the raffle quilt coordinator, will be giving out 120 block kits for the quilt. If you would like to be a part of this project, pick up a kit or two of these log cabin blocks and return them at the October Guild meeting.
Sunshine/Thank You Notes – The Guild always likes to reach out to members with a get-well or sympathy card when it would be welcome and to acknowledge donations and gifts with a letter of thanks. Please let me know if there is a member in need of a little Sunshine or a note of appreciation.
