Here we are at the close of another fun Guild year! We’ll wrap things up at our June 10th meeting/ get-together, which will be held in the lower level of Charlton Baptist Church. Please park in the back and enter through the door at the lower level. You’re invited to bring a snack/ finger food to share, but certainly that’s entirely discretionary. If you do bring something, and a serving utensil is required, please provide one. The Guild will provide beverages, along with plates and cups. And bring your wallets and checkbooks, because there are lots of great finds to be had at the Silent Auction! The Cornerstone Collectibles’ Team of Carol and Joanne have put together what promises to be a cornucopia of treasures to bid on!
In addition, bring your red, white and blue quilts to show, and any other “show and tell” quilts you’d like to show off! If you participated in a Challenge this year and haven’t yet shown your completed Challenge project, please bring it in June! Set-up for the meeting will begin at 11:30 and help is needed! If you can possibly come early to help, the facilities committee will be grateful. The Guild runs on volunteer power!!
The Membership committee people will have a table at the June meeting, so if you haven’t yet renewed your membership, you can do so then while you also check-in. There will also be a drop box for the Questionnaires that were circulated last month. Lost yours? No worries! Gaye Kenyon will have extras! If you do not renew your membership (con’t. pg. 2) Newsletter of the Cornerstone Quilters Guild 2 June 2018 (President’s Message con’t.) by the June meeting, you will not receive the newsletter going forward, which would be sad, so renew now!
And just because this Guild year is wrapping up doesn’t mean there isn’t fun being planned for next year!! And looking ahead, we’ll get the ball rolling by collecting “orphan blocks” at the June meeting, so bring any strays you don’t mind parting with. Monique Fontaine will collect them and organize orphan block packets for pickup in September, for you to transform into something amazing and wonderful! Also, Judy Bachand, with able assistance from Mary Piorun, will be reprising the “Shoebox Swap” activity that we so enjoyed several years ago. Sign-up will be in September. Look for additional information in the September newsletter.
Every year we need three people to audit the financial records. We need three volunteers to make this happen, please sign up if you can do this over the summer. It doesn’t take long, just a few hours getting together and going over the books.
Lastly, enjoy the Summer which will pass by all too quickly. Remember that rainy days are good sewing days!
Susan Burns, President
