September 10 Zoom Meeting Postponed; Request for Sewing Space Videos; Long Arm for Sale

September 10 Zoom Meeting Postponed

After listening to the Governor’s Emergency Briefing on Wednesday and talking with Diane, we have decided to postpone the zoom meeting until a later date to be announced.  With 35 active wildfires across the state encompassing a total of 500 square miles, evacuations in Lincoln City and elsewhere, and smoke bringing unhealthy air quality to where we live, Diane and I felt that it was best to focus our energies on caring for our family and neighbors, staying safe, and listening for updates from emergency preparedness officials where we live.  Please know that you are on our hearts and in our prayers.

Stay safe.  We will get through this together.  The wind will change and cooling rain will return.

Love to each of you,


Request for Sewing Space Videos

Please consider giving a quilt studio tour of your sewing space/room for our Oct Guild zoom meeting. You or friend would take a short 5-10 min video of your space, introducing yourself and your space.  This may include some short hints on storage/folding/sorting/ pressing all of your fabric, notions, and paraphernalia of quilting. We would like 3-4 members to participate for fun ideas and sharing. Text or call Jane 541-270-6130 or Janet 541-961-1963 for more details.

Soon that smoke will clear and we’ll be back to this:

One of the ladies who does hair where I go said that her mother was wanting to sell her long arm machine.  I don’t know much about it but here is the info. in case you know of anyone who might be interested.  If I were about 10 years younger I would probably try it myself.
