Kay Nixon Named "Quilter of the Year"


At last night's guild Christmas party, Kay Nixon was named "Quilter of the Year." Kay is a valuable guild member who goes out of her way to support guild members, welcome guests, and participate in the activities of the guild. She is well deserving of this honor.

December Meeting: 

December 12, 2018  6pm 
Parkview Christian Church

 HAPPY  HOLIDAYS

     It is  that time of year when we get  caught up in  the hustle and bustle of the season.  There are so much to do with decorations to put up, cookies to bake, cards to address, last minute gifts to make, presents to wrap, etc., etc., etc.!!!!!!  Take a few minutes, from time to time, to remember the important things.  You know what they are!  And please remember to SMILE! It is amazing what a smile can do and it doesn't cost you anything!  A smile is the flag we fly when God is in residence.
     
     You are  invited to the annual Christmas Party which will start at 6:00 p.m.  Bring a covered dish and your own beverage.  Table service will be provided.  The challenge is "Christmas Ornament" and the gift exchange, if you want to participate, is up to $20.

     Congratulations to our new officers,  Marilyn Nisius, Vice President and Judy Malloon, Treasurer.

     If you have something that you want to show and tell but is going for Christmas, bring it to the meeting.  Please hold anything else until the January meeting.

     I want to extend to all of you a special THANK YOU! for participating in the challenges this year.  The quilts are being assembled and will be shown at a later meeting.  These could not have been  made without your participation and I am truly thankful.

     See you at the party!  Happy Quilting, Kay

Some highlights from the November meeting are in Kay's greeting above.  

From Laura:  The raffle quilt is almost done!  It is to be quilted by Sarah Bistline in January.  There is quite a bit of leftover material and we are looking for a volunteer to make a bag for the quilt and maybe pillow shams too.  There is a fairly simple Quiltworx pattern for a center starburst for each.  If you are interested, please contact Laura Nolletti at 330-466-0822 or nollettilaura@gmail.com.

The Monthly Ongoing Hand Workers will meet on the first Friday of each month from 9:00 to 11:50 at Parkview Christian Church, in the Fireside Room.

   President's November Greeting  

NOVEMBER,  Already!!   There is a chill in the air, the leaves are turning and Mother Nature is showing off her beautiful fall wardrobe!  I am reminded to get those winter projects lined up for the approaching cold weather when I am just happy to stay inside and sew.

I will be collecting the token bags, final call.  Get a label from me, put your name on it, put it in the bag with the tokens and close it with a knot.

This is the time of the year when new committees are set up so please consider serving on a committee.  It takes all of us to make this guild successful.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we are reminded to give thanks for all our blessings.  I am blessed to be part of this wonderful guild.  I hope that you feel blessed to be a part of it, too.

Happy Quilting,   Kay

Let me know if you have difficulty downloading the minutes.  Thanks, Mary, for your detailed minutes.  Ruth.

Some highlights from the October minutes are:  at the November meeting we will be sharing quick Christmas gift ideas; voting on 2019 officers; voting for Quilter of Year for 2018; and opportunity to turn in blocks and remember to bring your token bag.  Also dues can be paid for 2019.  

I really enjoyed the October program by Mrs. A.  Learned so much about pincushions and felt blessed by her love for us all.
