The summer has flown by, the school buses are running. Please note
that our monthly meeting is on the second Monday in September, on the
10th, due to the Labor Day Holiday. The usual place, doors open at
6:30pm, meeting begins and 7:00pm. Did you get inspired by Tina Mort’s
trunk show at the August meeting? If so, be sure to enter your result
in the STEP UP to a Higher Level of Excellence, and show it at the
Nov. meeting. If you are doing the Monogram-Paint Chip Challenge, be
sure to have it ready for the Nov. also.

The PWQ Executive Board decided not to participate in the Pueblo West
High School 2012 Craft Fair. If you would like to have a booth for
your own creations, the fair date is Nov. 10 and you need to get in
touch with Keri Phillips for registration forms and info. She can be
reached at

McDonald finished the quilt’s binding and we will present it to Gabby

at the 9-10 meeting, to search for a board for PWQ in 2013. Please
