July Meeting 7/21/2016

Hello my talented beauties,


I hope everyone is being good to themselves during this very sad & trying time. I am so thankful to have quilting in my life that brings me serenity & joy! I want to tell y’all how thankful I am to have each of you in my life! I think everyone of you are beautiful, inside & out! You are such lovely & talented quilters that continue to give back to our community on a regular basis. I just want you to know how valued you are! We have our next meeting on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at 6:30 pm @the Jones Creek library. We will be focusing on the Quilt Show during the meeting. Please bring your quilts to turn in to me at the meeting, if you couldn’t print out a form online, copies will be provided at the meeting. Remember, all the quilts need to have a sleeve sew on or safety pinned on the top of the back of the quilt that goes all the way across from binding to binding. All quilts need to be turned in with a completed form, clean, free of lint, threads, hair of any kind. One case for the quilt show we will be going to be focused on our Sassi Stripper Quilt Guild, to let the community see what we do. If you have any memorabilia of anything to do with our guild & don’t mind letting us borrow it, could you please bring it to the meeting. We would also like to have a tribute to our law enforcement and country. If you have any items or quilts that are patriotic or in this theme, please bring those as well. All ideas & suggestions are welcome at the meeting for the quilt show. Please keep making bears for the show, you know they love to stuff those bears! Last year we received so many compliments on your works of art! The library staff looks forward to it every year. Please invite all your guilds, friends & family to the quilt show. The kids had a blast last year so don’t forget to invite them as well, they are the future quilters! Our Road Trip to Mia’s Quilt Shop & Duke’s Restaurant was so much fun!!! I believe we had 12 ladies join us. It was perfect timing because Mia’s just happened to be having a sale! The ladies enjoyed Duke’s atmosphere, food & service so much that we would like to see if everyone would like to have our Christmas Party there! Always lots going on with the Sassi Strippers! Please bring any completed UFO’s, donations for door prizes & tabs to be turned in to the meeting. Most definitely bring Show-n-Tell! One last thing, our guild member, Angie Hebert, is making goodie bags. They are for the police officers, canine officers, firefighter & EMS employees. She is also attaching thank you notes as well! I just wanted to share this with you because I think it is a great cause. If you would like to donate any homemade or mixes for cookies, brownies, dog treats or baking supplies please bring those to the meeting as well. You can also just write a note or a thank you card to them. I know it is short notice, you can make arrangements with Angie about another time. This is completely optional & not guild related, just heart related. So come on, join me for another night of fun, creativity & fellowship!


Humbly yours,



Pam Tennyson
