SEPT NEWSLETTER

Standard

September, Yep it’s here. I will not be able to attend this month’s meeting but Celeste will be there to do a fine job holding the meeting. We have two of our very own members presenting the program for September. Cathy M and Barbie O.
Hope all of you are working on this year’s challenge. All about Christmas. We have three categories, a large quilt, a small quilt and all other. I can’t wait to see all the beautiful work you do.
Something to think about: Guild elections are around the corner. There are elected positions to be filled President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer and positions appointed by the president (Programs, Membership, Charity and Newsletter). Please consider helping out with one of these positions. The guild cannot run by itself and the more members that participate the easier the job is. Please let a board member know if you are interested in a position or just have questions of what the job entails.
Reminders
Fall Workshop will be Oct 15th at the Moose Lodge from 9 to 3 pm $10
The Sip and Sew has been rescheduled for Sept 17th, 9 to 3 at Twisted Grape on Eglin Pkwy in Shalimar.
If you have something that you would like to see us do at our meetings please send me an email so that we can explore the idea.
Happy Sewing
Pam
