Happy September ACQ members!
As I type this, the smoke from the fires here and in California has obscured any view of the mountains from my Sewing Lair. I feel like I have gravel in my eyes and a really raspy voice. I pray for rain every night.
You will see in the newsletter, that we have another drive through event in September. This time it is on a Saturday at the church so even you “working stiffs” might be able to come by and say hi. Bring your Charity and CPNL quilts. I hope you can also take some kits for CPNL and charity quilts to finish at your leisure. Working hard here to have all 6 of my charity quilts ready by then. Look at the Book sale in the "Members Only" area, buy some, and come pick them up at the drive through event. You can drop off donated books if you have been cleaning your library. Buy some raffle tickets or drop off checks and stubs at this drive through event too!
I just got a call from an old friend in NC asking me to make 3 t-shirt quilts out of her late husband’s Harley collection. She wants them as Christmas gifts for the grandchildren. So, you know that will get bumped up on my list. I haven’t made a t-shirt quilt in many years. I hope I have enough to make one for my friend as well. So now I am in full gear to make my plate clean for when her t-shirts arrive.
I missed the Charity sew this month. Funny how that one day a month gets me so energized. But I did attend my bees Quilting retreat. 4 days with no cooking and all sewing. We were the only overnight guests at the facility, wore masks in the common area….but really we just sewed and laughed. Good times for our souls.
Elections, I still need a volunteer for VP Membership and VP Programs for 2021. If you are interested, please let me or one of the Board members know ASAP.
Keep smiling and sewing.
