For the Week of March 6-12

Information this week includes a message from Penni Myers, Merchandise Chair Person, and from Jane Szabo about Workshops and the Quilt Show.


We will have pre-orders for our new vest & jackets at the meeting.  There will be samples to try on.  You may pay in check or card.  Be the first to get them. We’ll also be selling the denim shirts as soon as we can get an order in so anyone that is wanting denim shirts they will be coming soon.  Hoping to get online orders set up soon on the website for those that aren’t able to come to the meetings. Keep an eye out and I’ll send more information when I have it. We are going to be switching it up and are using the ship emblem this year.

At the April meeting I will be bringing any left over T-shirts & sweatshirts & some of the bags that you can purchase as well.  Call me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Penni Myers

Quilt Show

Quilts By the Sea Quilt Show planning is progressing nicely with judge confirmed, Rec Center under contract and quilt registration open.  The committees just need a few more helpers like, judging, quilt intake and out take, but volunteers are always welcome.

Please consider entering a quilt this year, we need 250 quilts to fill the gyms. They also need small quilts for our auction to raise money for a local charity, see Jean Amundson for details.  Let’s all work together to make 2023 a great Quilt Show.  Next meeting, March 16, 1 pm at the Newport Library or zoom.

Jane Szabo and Barbara Kinzel
