SSQG Meeting - 6:30pm Thursday Sept 17, 2015

Hello my talented beauties,

    I hope everyone has been enjoying the cooler temperatures.  These are beautiful days to sit outside & do any type of handwork!  We have our Sassi Strippers meeting on Thursday, September 17, 2015 @ 6:30 pm at the Jones Creek Library.  I would like to thank Cherry Guidry, for the sharing her valuable time & knowledge with our guild.  She spent almost an 1 1/2 showing us her incredibly intricate, beautiful quilts , as well as her knowledge on preparing your quilts for longarm quilting!!!  She is one talented artist & I am so happy for her success!  Everyone enjoyed her with lots of chatter, questions & smiles!  Thursday we will be working on Bears, Bears, Bears!!!  This batch we are working on, we want to get to the body of the bear stage & they will not have a face drawn on them. We will be taking these bears to the "Senior Craft" night on October 12, 2015 @ the library, for the participants to stuff that evening with our volunteers from the guild.  Cancer Services has requested bears without a face drawn on them, so we will send these bears to them after completion.   Please bring what you would personally like to work on for the bears & the supplies to do so.  It is coming to that time of the year to appoint a committee to nominate  Officers for the 2016.  Please start thinking about who you would like to serve & if anyone is interested in any of the positions please let me know.  Congratulations again, to all our ladies that won ribbons for Viewer's Choice in the "Kaleidoscope of Quilts" for 2015 Quilt Show!!!
