President’s Corner August 2020
Greetings, dear friends!
Oh, my! Cindi’s presentation for our July meeting was so inspiring! Hopefully, we will see her again for a workshop in 2021! Aspen Leech, our youngest recruit for SSQ, was “Over the Moon!” with ideas and possibilities.
I continue to be amazed by the work you folks produce. You each seem to cherish your pieces and the stories that go with them and you take such delight in sharing. I am so ready to get back to quilting and try some of the ideas you shared.
Thanks to several of you for filling positions for the upcoming year. All of us benefit from the efforts of our committee chairpersons. Please say “Yes!” when you are asked to serve. Hopefully, we will have a completed list of “Who is doing What” very soon!
Stay healthy! Stay happy! And go create something wonderful!

Sunset Slope Quilters Open Sew
Many of you expressed interest in having more time, more opportunities to finish or practice the techniques or projects you started at Rendezvous, (or finish up those UFOs before the next millennium!) SSQ Board discussed this topic and we have a plan in place for you!
Open Sew Groups are welcome to use the Fellowship Hall at American Lutheran Church after the General Meetings and Programs. No need to make reservations. There is plenty of space for multiple groups to gather. You and your friends decide what you want to work on and do it! Pack a lunch, bring your own beverages. Please remember to bring your own supplies (irons, cutting and pressing mats, extension cords, etc.) The space is available after the General Meeting/Program until 4:00, so enjoy your time!
