Hi Happy Quilters,
I want to start this letter by thanking Mayra Diaz for volunteering to chair the Nominating Committee. We only have 2 positions open: President and Chair-person for 2016 Programs. If anyone is interested in these positions, please see Mayra.
I don't know where we stand on volunteers to work at the Ramble at Fairchild, but if anyone is interested in spending time at the Ramble please see Mary Ann Ericson. She can use all the help she can get.
We had a great time working with Jennie Dautermann after the meeting. We made up kits (you can expect to receive some of them at next meeting) and some members spent the time sewing items. Everyone kept Jennie running here and there. Thank you, Jennie.
I spoke to Linda Fentriss. Her address is 3431 Reynoldswood Drive, Tampa Fl. 33618. She was pleased that we are going to have quilts on hand for the veterans. The information she gave me included size requirements of 55” x 65” (small) and 60” x 80” (large.) They would rather have red white and blue, but will take any colors. Please avoid flowers as that limits them to only female recipients. The Batting used should be Warm and Natural or 80/20 cotton and poly blend. She suggested if you need more info to go to http://www.qovf.org/.
Well let’s get started and see what we can do to help. Thanks.
SCOOP UP SOME STASH
No extra travel required. Judy's Moving Team will be at the September meeting to offer more fabric bargains for
your creativity and fun. We'll have all new selections for your shopping enjoyment.
As many of you know from the past three monthly meetings, Judy Williams, long time Ocean Waves member and prolific quilter, is preparing to move again and is seriously downsizing.
