Welcome back – Important information

Are you ready for a new quilting year? We have lots planned, so stay tuned! You can also sign up for a new mystery quilt with clues distributed monthly. These are always fun.

A big change this year involves the setup for our meetings. Unfortunately, Matt, the church custodian, has injured his back and will no longer be able to set up the tables and chairs for us. (UGH, I know.) We’re hoping that everyone who is able will help with setup and any takedown that is required. To disperse the work, those who are designated by the first letter of their last name to bring refreshments for the month will also be responsible for setting up tables and chairs. Understandably, not everyone is able to help, but if you can, please arrive early on your assigned month and help set up, and help clean up after the meeting. Thanks to everyone, in advance, for their cooperation and help.

June program

Our final meeting of the year in June will be a combination potluck luncheon and community sew. You are welcome to come to either or both. For the luncheon, please bring a favorite (and yummy!) main dish, salad or side dish to share. We will be putting everything on a buffet table. If you only bake, you may bring dessert. But as we are all concerned about our “swim suit figures,” main dishes would be preferred. Also please remember to bring your own dinner plate, silverware, and beverage. Napkins and tablecloths will be provided.

For a little fun and sociability at the potluck, we are having the Left/Right game. Don’t forget your gorgeous fat quarter of fabric for that. We are also having a Show and Tell of favorite notions. There is always something out there we haven’t heard about that would make sewing just a bit easier. So…remember to bring your favorite notion, fat quarter of fabric, potluck dish and place setting for an enjoyable June meeting!

If you haven’t already signed up for the luncheon, please e-mail or call Shirley Swenson at skswenson@frontiernet.net or 845-876-2556 with your pot luck contribution. Thanks!
