Mabel thanked those who put up the library display—Ruth Bishop was the coordinator, with Mary Green, Jeri Fickes, and Mabel helping. Thanks also to those who donated items. The display will be there until mid September.
Mary Lou Nuzum discussed the Screen Tote Bag workshop on September 24th. There is a sign up sheet with instructions for the materials needed. Cost is $5.00. The pattern is Tote It and can be purchased from Somewhere Sewing or Chestnut Ridge. You may use a tote pattern you have, and adjust it to using the pet screen.
Vicky Hartzler discussed the Christmas party. The shoe box is the gift exchange, and is to hold 9 items using the letters in CHRISTMAS. The items are to be quilt related, with one item home made, and the value to be around $15.00. Some of the items should be purchased. The challenge is to make an item with a Christmas tree on it somewhere. It is to be a recently made item.
Program: Virginia Gunn, professor of textiles at University of Akron, and curator of textiles at the Wayne County Historical Society spoke about quilt conservation. She gave info on storing and handling old quilts, and also dated some that members brought.
The September program will be on table runners and bed runners by Lucille Lozier and Pat Hall. The meeting will be on September 19 due to the fair.
