President’s Corner September 2018


What a great Birthday Party for Sunset Slope Quilters at our September meeting. A special THANK YOU to Jocie and her battalion of helpers. Because of their planning and hard work, everyone had a great time.  

We all lead such busy lives with so much going on for each of us daily. Like many of you, I have so many things that I want to do and get done.  Is it the block of the month, a quilt for the Barnes & Noble show, a quilt top for community affairs, the library challenge, and of course a mountain of UFOs? Then you can also throw in life and out of town company.  I seem to be on a dead run or at least a hobble with the boot on my leg.  But Mark Twain said “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”  That is just what I am going to do….well maybe tomorrow.

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.
