President’s Corner August 2018

It is always so much fun to travel and visit with family and friends in Michigan. We had a wonderful
time in spite of the heat and humidity and a travel hiccup at an airport.

It is equally good to get home and back to your usual and hectic schedule. I think I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms and needed to go into my sewing room, feel my material and get some stitching done. Only one problem, there are too many projects to choose from. I have been visiting with Paula Hutman Thomas from CQC about the August 2019 meeting here in Grand Junction. She is working to get an excellent speaker, Sue Hickman, who tries to link modern and traditional quilting. If you would like to check our some of her work, go to www.studio2724.com.

Try something new and keep on quilting.

At Sunset Slope Quilters our purpose is to perpetuate the rich heritage of quilting in America, and to promote the art and perfection of the craft.  We meet to learn from well-known and local speakers, to share our quilts and to conduct our business as well as enjoy fellowship with each other. Workshops are also held for learning skills. We have a number of satellite groups that meet to stitch for fun, to learn from each other and to work on community charity projects.
