We hope you all are having a wonderful summer and quilting up a storm.
This year we have a number of exciting things to look forward to. Jo Thomas has managed to snare Irene Roderick (www.ireneroderick.com) for World of Quilts XLIII. She is planning on 3 unique lectures, so plan on spending the weekend with us. We will also be having a 2 day workshop with her after the show and be sure and check out our other workshops scheduled throughout the year. We have our Super Saturday again in February headed by Lefa Alksne and our very own comedian, Linda Finegan running the ever popular Ugly Fabric Auction. Jody Sullivan will be running 2 retreats at the Mariandale Center in Ossining. Check it out in this newsletter. Constance Toplansky is heading our 2023-24 Black and White Challenge. Orphan blocks are being collected by Patricia Loquet for later distribution to make into Comfort Quilts. Finally, we have a number of SIGs making plans for the year and we hope you will join.
As a reminder, our new location is Fox Lane High School, 632 South Bedford Rd. Bedford, NY 10506. This is just east of Exit 4 (Mt.Kisco) of I-684. There are 2 entrances. The first is the immediate right turn just past 684. It is not labeled but the road enters at the back of the campus where the two story atrium is our entrance. If you miss that turnoff, make a right at the light and follow the main roads around to the back. This will lead you to the other end of the campus where the 2-story atrium is at the back of the last building. There is ample parking adjacent to the door. We will be meeting in the cafeteria which is almost immediately on your right upon entering the building.
Before the meeting, at 4pm at her shop, Lisa Alfonzetti of Pins and Needles in Mt. Kisco is running a Sewing Machine Maintenance class and pizza party, free of charge for members, signup is requested – use the signup link later in the newsletter. Thank you so much, we are sure your pointers will be very helpful.
September is here. Hope to see you at our first meeting on Wednesday, September 20st at 5:30!
