April Minutes

Our next meeting, MAY 24, will be a hybrid meeting.  If you are able and feel comfortable to come to Southfork Community Center, we would love to see you.  A zoom link will also be available.  

Since we did not meet in-person at the April meeting, please remember to bring your items for Senior Services to the May meeting.  Suggested for April items were hair care products.  May suggested items are liquid soaps, but Bev says anything is appreciated. 

Our item to SWAP if you are interested in doing that is a ZIPPER POUCH.  If you make one, you can take one.  No need to sign up, just bring it to the May meeting.

The Round Robins are due in June!

We have some fun programs coming up this summer.  May is going to be a Zoom presentation by Leila Bowman on Organization.  In June we will have Shirley Bailey from Sew Original to talk to us about all things Needles and Threads.  In July we will be having a Members Spotlight, aka small trunk show, and an Ice Cream Social. If you are interested in showing your quilts let Lee know.

We are still working on the Raffle Quilts, first Tuesday of the Month at Ann Monroe’s house.  Please contact Ann if you can also help from home with some sewing.  MAY 10, is the next Zoom Sewcial and Ann will open her home that evening as well to continue working on the quilts.  Please let her know if you can come.  Also, we are needing ideas where we can “show” our raffle quilts and sell tickets.  This is our big fundraising effort, so please help if you can.

March Minutes

 Our next meeting, April 26 is going to be a hybrid meeting.  If you are able, we will be meeting at Southfork Community Center at 6:30.  If you are not able, there will be the zoom option.  Our speaker will be Anita Grossman Soloman.  This is a great opportunity for you to take advantage of because she had to cancel back at the beginning of Covid and has since decided to retire. 

Her program may be easier to watch via zoom, but seeing everyone again is also great!

Suggestions for Senior Services for April is hair care products:  shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo.  Bev will have fabric at the next meeting also if you would like to make a quilt to donate.  Cash is always an option.

The FIRST Tuesday of the month is our day to work on the Raffle quilts.  We will be meeting at Ann Monroe’s house April 5, 5:30 - 8ish.  Please text her if you will be able to come.

The SECOND Tuesday of the month is the Zoom Sewcial if you’d like to “attend” at 6:30.

Our next SWAP will be a zipper pouch due at the May meeting.  Our needle keeper swap was so fun!  Like that SWAP there is no need to sign up!  Just make one and bring it in May.

The Round Robins are due at the April meeting.  If you will not be able to attend and bring yours, please contact Kara so she can help keep things rolling.

February Minutes

We are hoping to be able to have an in-person meeting March 22 at SouthFork Community Center.  It will also be on Zoom if you do not feel ready to join in-person.

Lee is in charge of the program for March and it is gonna be a fun one! A traveling pressing station!  Lee will be sending out an email with all the details.

There are still quite a few people who have not paid membership dues.  You can still do that!  Please send your checks to Karen Camm payable to TMQG for $50.  This allows you to enjoy the programs for this year and all the National Modern Quilt Guild resources.

For March, we are collecting lotions, lip balm, moisturizers, etc. for Senior Services.  If you have not been able to drop any items off, this next month will be a great time to bring items not only for March, but also January (adult diapers) and February (dental health items).

Don’t forget to bring your Needle Keepers for the March Swap to the meeting.  No need to sign up.  Kara sent an email this week if you need ideas.

If you are able to come work on our Fundraising Quilts we will be meeting the first Tuesday of each month at Ann Monroe’s house.  Our next meeting will be March 1st from 5:30 - 8:30.  Please text Ann to let her know if you will be able to come.  No food please and masks are required.
