President's Message - July 2012

Hello everyone!

The heat has made me stay indoors and sew even more.  How about you?  I did make it over to Fabric Krazy for her sale ‑‑ not often do you see fabric of that fine quality for 60% off.  I hope her move goes well and I look forward to seeing her new space. 

I also went to the new store, Mia's Fabric Cafe, right down Hwy 16 from me in Denham Springs.  Wow! She is a rather new quilter, but she did a great job selecting fabric collections for her store.  I especially loved her 60" bolts of LSU and Saints fabric for backing sports-themed quilts. 

On another subject, our June Saturday Sew In was well attended.  I believe there were 15 people there and Margie's "Judy Neimeyer" demo was great with tips and shortcuts for using her patterns.  Those that are working on a "Judy" pattern spoke of continuing that little group, sort of a support group?  Thanks to Margie.  Maybe we can line up a different demo for the July sew in on 7/14??  Any volunteers? 

First & Favorite quilts will be Suzi Montague and Kim Wagner.  I look forward to the GSQA meeting in BR and the "Brown" classes, July 26-28.

We want to keep Melanie in our prayers.  I understand that she is slowly improving and appreciates our/your cards of encouragement.

We have a great meeting planned for you all, so please join us and have a Happy 4th of July.
