Where has the summer gone? The leaves are beginning to turn yellow on a few trees as I write this. Those of us who are not
full time residents in the mountains are beginning to make plans to return to our other homes. Trying to finish exploring the few places we did not see yet this summer.
I don’t know about you, but the summer seem to fly by even with the new challenges in our world. Those who are full time residents in this beautiful area are beginning to prepare for the winter ahead.
The September guild meeting will be held September 15 in South Fork. The exact location has not been determined. Watch for a future e-mail with location details. Vi Koch will be presenting a program about patriotic panels. As is our new normal, we ask that you wear a mask at the meeting. Please bring your own food and drink.
Our August meeting was filled with ideas for projects to make for the Treasure Trove. Thanks to Beth and other Treasure Trove committee member they had kits for members to take and complete projects. With the ongoing work on Treasure Trove projects we should have a nice selection of items to sell at our 2021 Quilt Show.
At the last meeting we discussed programs for the upcoming year. We have many talented members in our guild that can teach us new techniques and ideas. We would still like to have at least one program presented by a speaker from outside the guild. If you have any ideas, please contact Pat Miller.
For those who missed our annual retreat, what a fun time spent together sewing on Treasure Trove projects and personal projects. It is always fun to get together with our fellow guild members and sew, share ideas, visit and laugh together. For many of us who have been staying close to home this year, it was good to just be around each other.
The October newsletter will be sent out no later than September 28. It is imperative that all newsletter information be sent to me no later than September 25. Thanks for your help.
