Community Quilters and Show Volunteers
These posts from Sue Stephenson were inadvertently left out of the latest Blog so I am posting separately. Please read carefully and respond. It is important.
Our next Community Quilters will take place on 7/5 at Ruth’s Family Fabrics in Waldport. It begins at 10:00 to about 2:00, but you can come and go as you please. Again, for now, we are asking that you NOT bring your sewing machine. We have some quilt tops that have been turned in that we need to prepare for quilting, so we will be selecting backing and binding fabrics for these. We also need to make more kits, as they have been very popular with our guild members. I am so pleased with the quality and beauty of the tops that have been created from our kits! Thank you so much to those who have attended our 1st Thursdays, and thanks to all our members who have made so many quilts! I also want to send out a huge THANK YOU to Elizabeth Wood and Bev Ohngren for running the show at the June Community Quilters in my absence. In just this last month, we have given out about 28 quilts. Again, I am also looking for “burp pads” (Jan McQueen turned in a dozen of these at the June meeting). We are also on the hunt for any fabric or orphan blocks that would be good for pre-teen and teenage boys. I also want to send out a huge THANK YOU to Elizabeth Wood and Bev Ohngren for running the show at the June Community Quilters
Quilt Show Volunteers
As of this writing, we have almost 100 shifts that have not been taken. This is a big deal because everything that we do at the quilt show gets done by volunteers from our membership. We will have the signup board at the next Guild meeting on July 12, and we need EVERY MEMBER to sign up for at least one shift at the show. If you won’t be at the guild meeting, please email me (after 6/29) at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will find a place for you to volunteer. We have sitting, standing and “roaming” jobs available each day. NEW MEMBERS – grab a friend and work a shift together – or even better, sign up for a position with someone you don’t know and make a new friend! This is one of the best ways to get to know other members of our guild.
