President’s Message

Hi Everyone,

I am writing this just before Hurricane Henri visits Long Island and New England! I hope the storm decides to move far eastward with little to no impact to our area!

We had an enjoyable picnic at Eisenhower Park on July 29th. Even though the event had to be postponed by one day, that Friday evening turned out well with beautiful weather. Members could browse for a new book or buy some raffle tickets at Cathy Peterson’s table or shop at Maryellen and Christine’s Pop-Up store. We had a fantastic Show ‘n Tell too. It was just so nice to be able to get together. Now, we’re hoping to do it again on Thursday, August 26th, beginning at 4:30 pm. Please join us!

I hope you’ve been busy creating your 20” x 20” quilt for the Outdoor Exhibit to be held on October 23rd. Cathy Peterson will be happy to receive your quilt for this exhibit/auction! It’s a great opportunity to be creative and to display your work. Please also volunteer some time to help Cathy with the Outdoor Exhibit. A publicity person is especially needed to spread the work about this exciting event.

Brita Nelson is our speaker at our next General Meeting on Thursday, September 2nd. Brita will tell us all about her work involving the Disappearing Nine-Patch and it should be an entertaining evening on ZOOM.

I hope you are you all enjoying the last few weeks of summer! It is amazing that we are already heading into the final weeks of August. Enjoy every minute of it!

Happy Quilting,
Mary Schuellein
