PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: REGINA APUZZO
I’m writing this letter on one of those beautiful late summer days filled with a chorus of cicadas, reminding me that autumn is just around the corner. As we move toward those cooler days, we will be busy with an exciting guild calendar, starting with our September meeting. We are pleased to welcome Fiber Artist, Barbara Yates Beasley “Windows Into The Souls of Animals” (https://barbarayatesbeasley.com/). Barbara will be teaching her two-day Animal Portraits workshop (sold out), followed by her lecture at our guild meeting. I’m excited to be part of this special event.
The first Saturday in October, the 5th, will feature Newtown Market Day. Our guild has participated in this event for many years, and we will be doing so this year. It’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our guild and quilt making and, also, for members to socialize outside of our guild meetings. There are vendors and yummy food — hope that the Bundt cake vendor is there again! 😊 We will be selling tickets for our beautiful raffle quilt and will be asking children to color fabric squares for our “Crayon Quilts – Children Helping Children” philanthropy project. Volunteers will be needed throughout the day to staff our booth. Stay tuned for more information in an email to members, which I will be sending soon.
