The President’s Message
And now it’s November, with the holidays looming just ahead! For those of us who like to honor our loved ones with hand-made gifts, the time leading up to the Big Day (whatever your personal Big Day may be!) is never enough. So get sewing! Or knitting, or crocheting, or baking, our whatever your Super Power may be, and have fun doing it!
If you volunteered for the YMCA children’s gift program, please bring in your wrapped gift, with the tag on it, to the November meeting. A representative from the Southbridge YMCA will be at the meeting to receive them and speak a bit about how much this
program means to area families in need. And a big “Thank You!” to Cathy Carpentier for again heading up this worthwhile outreach project.
If you are participating in the Shoebox Block exchange, don’t forget to bring in the box you received at the October meeting, and take home the next one in line to return in January. Also in January is the “Orphan Block Challenge” reveal! If you took home a bag (or more!) of orphan blocks, please bring your creation to the January meeting for all to admire!
Another big “Thank You!” goes out to Ruth Haynes, Sue Therriault, and Judy Bachand for organizing another successful Fall Retreat! We had a lot of fun and even got some sewing done! Next year’s Retreat is scheduled to take place in October at the same venue, The Woodbound Inn, in Rindge, NH. Look for more information on that after the first of the year.
There is no meeting, and also no newsletter, in December. Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and blessed holiday season!
Susan Burns, President
