Greetings Quilters,

 Our next meeting is..........July 7, 2009 at the Church the theme is "Christmas in July" with an ice cream social.

Our Sew Saturday is only two days away!!! If you want to come but haven't signed up that's okay, you can still come. We just needed to know "about" how many paper piecing patterns to copy off for you. Sew Sat starts at 9:30 and runs till 1:00 you may get finished before that but if not bring a snack or sack lunch.

The fat quarter drawing for July will be Patriotic RED/WHITE/BLUE. Any of those colors or combinations will be fine. Stars and stripes will also work well.

 Don't forget to bring your favorite topping for our ice cream social and your sewing machine for our Snowball Quilt, please have it cut out and ready to sew. It does not have to be Christmas fabric however we thought it would be a fun way to have a Christmas Quilt ready by Christmas if we started on them in July. The Old World Snowball pattern fit with Christmas in July.


Just to let those of you who were not at the June meeting know..........the board has set up a "relocation committee" to work on finding a place to move so that we will not keep getting bumped from our room or having to share with other groups at the same time. Alta, Jeanne and Violet are working on other facilities. If anyone knows of a place "large" enough for us please let one of the board members or relocation committee know. 

Our President will remain on a leave of absence through July and possibly August. Mary thinks she will be up to coming to the July meeting if only for a short time. She is working on her snowball quilt, and I was happy to see that!! 
See you all at the July 7 meeting.
