March President’s Letter

Our guild members were busy in February!  We had a welcome coffee for new members at the home of Julie Putnam – she has some beautiful antique quilts – and it was great to get to know people better and to answer questions about some of our guild activities. 

We’ll be doing this three more times this year – anyone is welcome to attend.

I visited the store room to get a back and batting for a charity quilt I made from a mystery bag provided by the Candy Strippers.  There was a BOM Committee meeting going on right there and next door, Charity Sewing was happening in the classroom – so many beautiful donation quilts are being made.

Chris Behme demonstrated how to add binding to a scalloped edge at the Delaware Sewing  Bee.  It was fun to see what everyone brought to work on – a real mixture of projects.

March will be just as exciting – a great program and workshop along with our sewing days.  

A note about show & tell – we all love it!  Please do bring your quilts to share – but limit to 2 per meeting.  Also, the quilt should be finished unless there is a special reason to show it prior to completion such as giving it away before the next meeting.


  • Please come a few minutes early so that you can be in your seat right at 9:30 when the fun begins. 
  • Bring your Steals & Deals items, price them please. 
  • Wear your name tag-look for a name tag class soon.
  • Bring a $1 donation and/or donation item for Cornerstone Lutheran Church – this month they are collecting baby care supplies – diapers (size 4, 5 & 6), pull ups (size 3T-4T), baby wipes – toiletries – body wash, hand soap, deodorant – and laundry detergent, fabric softer, kitchen trash bags, paper plates/bowls, non-perishable food for Family Promise of Hendricks County.  

Quilting is a scrap of happiness!
