President’s Corner 2020
Hello, my fellow quilters!
What a crazy turn of events unfolding (unraveling?) right before our eyes! I hope that each of us are taking the necessary precautions to
keep ourselves and our loved ones healthy throughout the next several weeks. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces in May when we meet again!
In the meantime, here is a project to occupy your time and your mind:
Join us for QUAC-UP (Quilters Avoiding COVID-Unfinished Projects!) Drag out those UFO projects and finish them to share at our May 13th meeting. In the next 8 weeks send Janet Wheeler or me pictures of your works in progress and we will post them on our Facebook page. Your finished projects will be featured in our Show & Tell segment. You will receive a ticket for each finished piece you share, and we will have prizes! It’s a fun, productive distraction!
Most importantly, take time for you! Relax. Read a book. Take a nap. Go for a walk.Call a friend. Quilt! Be happy and healthy, my friends!
See you on the other side!
You are what you repeatedly do.
Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
Time to quilt.

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.
TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts
