President’s Corner January 2018
HAPPY NEW YEAR and by the way where did 2017 go? I am looking forward to serving Sunset Slope Quilters as president and I know that 2018 is going to be an awesome year.
Wendy has put together a schedule of wonderful programs that will include a variety of topics that should pique everyone’s interest.
We all need to challenge ourselves and grow as individuals This might include stepping up and taking on a new responsibility or learning something new. There are opportunities where you can do both in SSQ as a committee member/helper, taking in a workshop, or participating in the block of the month.
Are you one of the SSQ members that have never taken on a job for our guild? You need to step up and do your part. Just remember that you will get more out of our guild if you contribute more into it to make it the best for everyone.
PRESIDENT: Yolanda Crawford
Yolanda Crawford, president, asked for HELP! She reminded everyone that SSQ is a unit. Everyone needs to help so holes aren’t open in the unit. Remember the background is just as important to hold together the unit. Two holes that still need to be filled are Programs 2019, and Barnes and Noble Winter.

TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts
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.
With warmth and love, TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts are made, signed by members of our guild and given to a member diagnosed with cancer or other illness.
