President’s Corner 2019
What a great Birthday Luncheon. It was a wonderful time. A special thanks to Kathy Morgan and her crew. They did an outstanding job.
We have a great slate of officers for next year. Thank you, Kathy Morgan, Vickie Irvin, Eva Mae Hinkle and Linda M. Smith for stepping up to the plate to serve SSQ. It will be an exciting year in 2020. Each SSQ member needs to consider saying yes when contacted to serve or chair a committee next year. Many hands make light work so everyone needs to do their part. Also, a big thank you to the nominating committee for all of their work and many calls.
The day after our meeting, my husband and I headed to Michigan to visit family and friends (along with a quilt shop or two). It was great fun and I recommend some time away for everyone if you can possibly do it.
In October, we have several opportunities to help, share and learn. After the meeting on Wednesday the 9th, we will have a sew-in to make kits for the NICU at St. Mary’s Hospital. Bring your sewing machine and lunch and have a fun time with friends making kits for the little tiny ones. If you have questions, just give me a call for more information. We can also learn from Marguerita McManus as she teaches and shares her experiences with a trunk show at our meeting followed with a workshop on Thursday about quilting as you go.
How are you coming on the goals that you set for yourself this year? I have completed many of them but have some to go.
Remember “Don’t think about the money spent on fabrics. Think about the love in all the quilts”

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.
