President’s Corner September 2018

December already? Where did the last eleven months go, and why so fast? I remember as a kid that it seemed like forever when waiting for December. It was always a wonderful time of year for celebrating with friends and family.

I am glad that our quilting family gets together frequently. Whether through meetings, classes, or community activities, everyone is helpful and supportive of each other. What has been a highlight for you this year? Each of us can probably think of several. There are so many chances to learn, improve yourself and help others. Be an active and contributing member of SSQ by getting involved. See me for the available opportunities.

Because I have the privilege of being your president again next year, I would like to wait on selecting a president’s block. Instead I would like for you to make a block for Community Affairs cancer quilts. Kris will have a pattern and directions available at the next meeting. 

An alternate choice would be to help with making TLC blocks as Caroline is in need of some. Thank you for taking on this to help those in need. TLC Quilt Block

We will have a great time at our Christmas lunch with lots of good food, gifts, fellowship, and fun in general.
Wishing each of you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

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.
