Don’t miss it!
During July, the Newport Public Library is displaying 17 small quilts made by OCQG members. Library visitors are invited to view the quilts and vote for a favorite. After the library votes are counted, the person who made the “most-votes” quilt will be honored at the guild’s general meeting. In addition, the person who made the auction quilt that received the most votes at the library will be able to designate an additional nonprofit to receive $50 from the guild. Library staff have remarked that both staff and patrons are enjoying the quilts.
After the display is taken down, the quilts will travel to the Newport Recreation Center, where they and many more will be (silently) auctioned as part of the OCQG annual quilt show, “Quilts by the Sea,” August 5 and 6. Half the proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to a local nonprofit organization.
Don’t forget the deadline for registering your quilts for the show in July 4!
Please return all your sold & unsold tickets, stubs, & money by the Thursday, July 14th Guild meeting. I especially need all unsold raffle tickets to sell at the Quilt Show.
If you are not able to attend the meeting, please contact me by phone or email to make arrangements for delivery or pickup.
I will be at Community Quilters in Waldport on Thursday, July 7th, from 10 AM -12:30 PM and am travelling to Astoria on Monday, July 11th, so could stop along the way. Call me.
This is the Guild’s major fund raiser for the year, so let’s not leave any tickets on “the cutting room floor”.
Jan Hoffman 2022 Raffle Quilt Ticket Sales
Do you have a quilt that took a long time to finish? Share that quilt with your guild members at our next meeting, July 14th. We need more quilts to show at our meeting and there will be prizes.
Please email Jane at email@example.com to register to show a quilt that has taken you a long time to finish. Have a good story or excuse of why it has taken you sooo long to finish your quilt.
Some members held their hands up at last meeting, but the list got lost in transfer. I remember Jean A, Ginger D, Carol N and Lindanne P. Everyone else, please mail me.
I will not be able to attend Thursday meeting. However I want to bring everyone up to date on the quilt show.
We are still in need of someone to head the group to put up outdoor signs.
Janet Webster has provided excellent directions for placing of the signs.
Due to the aging populations of the guild I have proposed the idea of getting a youth group looking for funding for their projects to put up the signs.
This will decrease the strain on quilt members.
If you have additional questions please let Janet Baldwin know. I will be at the meeting next week. June 16 at Atonement Lutheran church 1:00.
This Thursday, June 9th, 5:30 Table Walk and 6:00 Meeting is our next Guild Meeting.
We will have a zoom presenter, Lori Dickman. “For the Love of Quilting Made Easy” is her topic.
Don’t forget to Bring:
- Your Veteran’s block
- Block of the Month block
- Raffle money
- SABLE theme – Farmer’s Market
- Challenge quilt
- Show and share, etc
Have you registered your quilts for the Quilt Show? July 4th is the deadline.
Enjoy the meeting with friends.

Due to health issues I am stepping down from the Retreat Committee. It is a hard decision. Jan McQueen, Gail Chipman and Patti Stephens are at the helm now. Please contact Gail or Patti to get the details on where to send your Retreat payments. This Retreat will be the best.
Please see the ladies at the table at the General Meeting. Also, for those that had signed up and planned on attending the 2022 Retreat, please pick up your gift from Virgil and I at the meeting or make arrangements with the Committee. Some of you picked them up at the April meeting.
I want to thank all of you for some of the best times at the Retreat. I plan on attending the 2024 Retreat.
A request for some help please. Due to some health issues I am unable to fulfill my Hospitality obligations. Jackie Stankey answered my call for help last month and now she’s going to be needing some help.
Please contact Jackie Stankey if you can help her out.
