September President’s Letter

Hello Quilters,

Have you all been busy sewing during the heat of August? I managed to finish quite a few projects although I probably started as many as I finished. Oh well, that’s how I roll. Heaven knows, like most of you, I have plenty of fabric to work with, so I might as well keep creating quilts!

Thank you to everyone who posted a photo of themselves during their childhood on our Facebook page. It’s fun to look back and see the same smile or twinkle in the eyes that you see in the adult versions of each other. My plans for all of us making connections this year hasn’t quite gone as planned, but we still have time. Keep an eye out for a few more challenges in the coming months.

This month’s meeting we are heading back to Holland Park in Fishers, the site of our July meeting, so that we can have as large a crowd as possible. We have a speaker from out of state, the guild’s birthday to recognize, the introduction of our officers for 2021, plus Show & Tell and plenty of time to visit with each other. On the off chance that we run into bad weather on the morning of the 14th, plan B is to meet at Cornerstone Lutheran Church.

We will have a board meeting on Friday, September 18th at 9:30 in Holland Park. Anyone is welcome to attend. At 11:30 on the same date we are hosting a Meet & Greet in Holland Park. If you’d like to join us, bring your lawn chair, a snack or lunch and a drink. Officers and board members will share information about the guild and ways for members to be more involved. The rest of the time is for visiting and catching up with each other. It’s a great opportunity to meet other people in the guild and it allows us to get to know some of our newer members a little better. There is no requirement that you have joined the guild recently, just come if you want!

Have you had a chance to visit the Eiteljorg Museum to see the quilt exhibit, QUILTS: Uncovering Women’s Stories?  The exhibit will be there for four more months. If you prefer to stay at home, then maybe you can catch the Wisconsin Quilt Show on facebook. I’ve heard a lot about that quilt show and when this pandemic is gone, it’s my plan to see that one in person.

I hope you are all finding some fun in your sewing rooms and I hope to see you at one of our coming meetings.

Stay well and keep sewing!

April
