President’s Corner 2019
Summer is really going fast, or so it seems to me. But then every year seems to speed by faster than the one before did. I am working hard to accomplish some of those goals that I set back in January. How are you all doing on your projects?
Are you getting excited about the Garage Sale after the meeting in August? This would be a great time to clean out and organize your sewing area(s). We all have things that we no longer need or want but those might be the very thing(s) that someone else needs. Let Kris Murphy know that you want a table at our sale. Table rental fee goes to SSQ and you get to keep the money from your sales. If you don’t have enough for a table, maybe you would like to donate them to be sold at the SSQ table.
Don’t forget the CQC meeting on August 24th at 10:00 am at ALC. Everyone is encouraged to attend and there are still spaces available in the class on August 25th with Sue Hickman. Remember to make a pincushion as a favor to give to those attending.
Life is full of choices for each of us every day. CHOOSE TO:
Love rather than Hate
Heal rather than Wound
Encourage rather than Criticize
Be grateful rather than Resentful
Bless rather than Stress
But most importantly …
Give rather than Take.
What talent/ability do you have to give to make SSQ grow and improve? We can only reach our potential when everyone is active and involved. Doing your part by serving as an officer for 2020 is how you can GIVE rather than take.

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.
