Our June meeting will again be our ice cream social. The final meeting of the year before everyone goes off to summer vacation. We will also have our basket raffle, job jar drawing for a free membership for the year and lastly, our philanthropic committee will be drawing for the lucky winner of a gift certificate for helping complete quilts and placemats. Good luck to all.
We’ll also be collecting $10 Giant gift cards for the church’s food larder. Don’t forget your Polka Dot fat quarters and your show and tell.
Candace Kitner-Perry from the Schwenkfelder Library will speak.
The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center, with its internationally recognized collections and research facilities, engages visitors in exploration of the themes of religious freedom, tolerance, migration, and heritage in their own lives and the lives of their families through the stories of the Schwenkfelders and the Pennsylvania Germans of the Perkiomen region - people whose bonds of faith, family, and community tell a fundamental American story.
The program for our February gathering is "A Night of Inspiration". In an effort to revitalize the "show and tell” portion of our guild meeting, each member is asked to bring with them to the meeting one quilt they have made. This quilt can be a recent completion or a favorite from long ago. (We ask that you NOT bring a quilt the guild has already seen). You will have the opportunity to share with the group what inspired you to make the quilt. Was it color or fabric choice? The person you were gifting? perhaps it was a challenge you just couldn't turn down? Whatever the reason we want to hear "your story" of why you made this quilt.

Lots going on for our meeting on December 12. Don’t forget it begins a half hour earlier at 6:30 pm. Can’t wait to sample all of the delicious goodies that everyone will bring and share. If you are making something and think that others may want the recipe, please bring the recipe with you or email it to me and I will add a recipe section to the newsletter in January.
We have many requests for donations to not only the church’s food larder, but also for Laurel House. Please consider bringing something to the December meeting for both of these worthy causes.. See the newsletter for all the details.
