President's Message June 2012

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are staying cool in this heat wave -- maybe a good time to sit and sew at home?  I have enjoyed the Farmer's Market downtown this month with all the fresh vegetables, strawberries, and even cheeses.  I love a salad with a home grown tomato. 

We have a lot to look forward to this summer and fall with many wonderful teachers like Kathy Brown, Lynn Roddy Brown, and Karen Stone.  I also look forward to Margie Bumm sharing her tips for paper piecing on Saturday Sew Day, our "Judy Niemeyer Day".  This will be at St. Paul's Church this Saturday, June 9.

We will also hear about our upcoming events such as the auction and fall retreat.  Our First and Favorite quilts will be from Mary Woltmann and Connie Day.  Thanks ladies for sharing with us.  We will also have a new Lotto Block to admire.  The packet and directions will be available to buy and then bring your completed block in July for the drawing of a winner!

On another note, we want to continue to pray for Melanie's recovery.  What a shock to hear of her sudden illness.  I owe a lot to her personally with her help on challenging projects and we all hope for her full recovery.  We love you, Melanie.

I hope to see you all this Thursday.
