President’s Corner 2019
Out with the old and in with the new, as we start a new year. But wait, let’s look at what we accomplished this past year as a group. Over 100 quilts for cancer patients, quilts for Habitat for Humanity, our own TLC quilts, 250 Christmas stockings, not to mention the great charity drive for the Paradise Fire victims, makes quit a list. It pleases me greatly to be part of such a wonderful group of talented and caring people. But just for a moment, think of what you, as an individual, have accomplished this past year.
However, we cannot just sit back and rest on our laurels. As we start the new year, let’s determine in our hearts to continue to cut, sew, quilt, and bind our quilts. What are your goals (dare I say resolutions.) for the new year? I can think of about a dozen UFOs that would be great for me to cross off my list of “to do’s.” I will try to keep you updated on my progress but don’t be afraid to ask me how my list is going just to remind me.
As a group, we have a lot scheduled in the coming year including rendezvous, the quilt show, and many exciting workshops. Something for everyone so — Shake off the cobwebs, clean out your machine, put in a new needle and let’s start sewing.

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
With warmth and love, TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts are made, signed by members of our guild and given to a member diagnosed with serious life changing conditions.
