President’s Message

Hello ESQ Members,

What beautiful September weather we are having! Autumn begins in a few short days and it is such a beautiful time of the year, with cooler weather and the leaves changing. Enjoy all that autumn has to offer this year!

Our Garage Sale was a big success and I think shoppers enjoyed finding new items to add to their quilting and crafting collection.  Thank you to Ruth Case for organizing the event! A good number of members signed up for the UFO challenge that night and it will be fun to see how these projects progress through the months.  You can check in with Sue Acevedo as you go along. What a great way to get some projects completed!

Paula Nadelstern will be giving a lecture at our next meeting, Oct. 3rd, and it will be an interesting, enjoyable night. Don’t forget to sign up for Paula’s workshop that will be held the next day on Friday, Oct. 4th, at the Mineola Community Center.

Our Share Table will begin at the October meeting so please bring any quilting-related item that you would like to pass along.  Remember to take home your item if it does not get picked up.  Also, the Shop Talk table was a hit at the September meeting. At the next meeting, Barbara Hull will be found at the table demonstrating a new technique. If anyone would like to volunteer one month at Shop Talk, please see Kathy Dehler. It’s a great way to share information and learn new techniques.

If you know of someone who can use some cheering up or should be congratulated, please look for the Sunshine & Shadowcards to fill out when you check in at the monthly meeting.

Your new membership cards are waiting for you at the member check-in table.  Also, please don’t forget to pick up your 2019 Raffle Quilt tickets at check-in, and get out and sell as many as you can! It’s an important fund-raiser for our guild. Thank You!

I look forward to seeing you all at our October meeting! Don’t forget to bring your beautiful quilts for Show and Tell!

Happy Quilting!
