Pam Boozan, PresidentIndependence Day is almost upon us. I hope everyone has a happy and healthy Fourth of July. The weather has been hot and beautiful for barbequing. Hopefully you have all of your patriotic quilts out. I have one lap size and one wall hanging. I used to love to decorate for all of the different holidays.  Don’t ask me how many patriotic and other holiday themed beanie bears I have. Now, I rely on my quilts to tell the story.

July 29-30 is our Quilt Show, as everyone must know by now. July 6 is our special day at the Elks Lodge to bring all your labors of love. We will be there from 9:30 to 11:00 AM. You will be dropping off your quilts to Elaine Ohgi, acquisitions. Bring your boutique items to Nancy Post.

Bring your Opportunity Baskets to Marilyn Pond or me. Carol Logue will be selling pre-sale tickets. All of the stuff that doesn’t happen in July will occur at our regular August meeting, so never fear.

NOTE: If you are unable to meet this specific deadline, contact the person(s) above to establish a meeting time/place. We understand that things happen.

The volunteers should hear from their coordinators in early July. You can always call me if you know you volunteered but haven’t been contacted.

The Quilt Guild relies on the Quilt Show to balance our budget and plan for the kind of workshops and speakers that everyone looks forward to. This is an important event, and we are going to have a wonderful show, with around 100 quilts, a booming boutique, fabulous vendors, Challenge quilts, Opportunity Baskets, and fat quarter drawings.

Our new venue will add value with its onsite food, parking and welcoming sponsorship. It is not too late to encourage your friends and relatives to come and see our beautiful work. It is our privilege to share your mastery in quilting and needle arts with others.

See you at the Show!
