Its HOT, HOT, HOT so hope you are staying cool inside sewing,
quilting, creating. And getting ready for the PWQ annual July ice
cream social night which will be on the SECOND Monday, July 9, by vote
of the membership last January. Weird when July 4th hits during the
middle of the week, huh? The Executive Board has put together a fun
evening of refreshments, games and camaraderie so come and join the
festivities. The theme, fittingly, is Celebrate America and will
feature patriotic gifts and decorations, so wear your reds, whites and
blues. Also, our Sew N Share will consist of only items that are red,
or white or blue or any combination of those 3 colors. The items do
not need to be patriotic and they can be items that have been shown
before. Limit of only 3 items per person, please. Meeting time 7:00pm,
at Gabby’s diner. Doors open at 6:30pm.
Our Sew Saturday was lightly attended, but we got the top of Ben and
Gabby’s quilt completed. Jean McDonald has offered to do the binding
on the quilt once it is quilted. Who is going to quilt it? Please get
a written bid to me by the July 9th meeting, all you long-arm
quilters. Patsy Morris quilted the thank you quilt last year, without
charge, and being on this year’s board, is not placing a bid, so
please help us out. Because of all the seams on the quilt top, the
club will purchase a fat-back for this quilt to make the quilting
