PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: REGINA APUZZO
As 2019 draws to a close, Newtown Quilters’ Guild will turn the page on a wonderful and momentous chapter in its history. The guild celebrated a milestone in 2019 – its 30th birthday! Our June birthday meeting brought together old and new, memories and the promise of tomorrow, along with a commemorative quilt with blocks made and signed by members. Our beautiful Quilt Show took place in October and received rave reviews from visitors. 2019 featured programs and speakers, both nationally known and our very own members, offering a window into the many diverse areas of quilt making. Our workshops provided opportunities to learn new skills while socializing with fellow members. Our 2019 raffle quilt wowed and will soon be in the hands of its lucky winner. Through your generosity, the guild provided quilts, holiday stockings, and birthday buddies to our neighbors in need. Non-perishable food items were collected at our Quilt Show and donated to an organization which helps to feed the hungry. Partnering with the community, the guild worked with Friends Home and Village to make a quilt to raise funds for their improvement projects; we donated fabric to a Girl Scout Silver Award candidate; and we partnered with local first responders by providing Crayon Quilts for children in crisis. We participated in Newtown Market Day and donated a raffle basket for Lower Makefield Township’s Community Pride Day.
What made 2019 great was you, our members. Through your continued support and participation, our guild will remain strong and successful, enabling us to continue to provide a welcoming place where quilters can share their love of the art, and, as well, enabling us to continue our community partnerships. The promise of tomorrow is in our hands. I’m looking forward to 2020!
