News From Krispi : Annual Meeting, Board Elections ; and Gail Goldade’s Class

Dear Guild Members,
​Good news!! We have our annual meeting coming up on October 19. I hope it is already on your calendar. We will be electing our officers for the next year. Please come and vote. We have a slate of officers, so you don’t need to worry that you will be pressed into service.

The slate is: ​​

President: Nancy Best
​Vice President: Krispi Staude
​Treasurer: Joanne Hinkle
​Secretary: Julie Weaver

​We will meet at about 9AM on Saturday and the meeting will start the meeting at 9:30.

If someone wants to make a morning snack to have with coffee as we gather, that would be lovely!

​After the business meeting, we will have a program given by Gail Goldade sharing her quilting journey. Be prepared to laugh out loud. She has such a way of turning a phrase that I always find myself smiling when I am around her.

Quilt Camp/Retreat is coming up in November. The dates are Friday Nov 8 (meals starting with dinner), through Tuesday, Nov 12 (with breakfast being our last meal). Your balance is due on the date of the annual meeting. If you paid your $50 deposit, you will owe $240 for the balance if you are staying the whole time. Please come prepared to pay on that day to make things easier for the committee and treasurer.

​We will also have a brown bag lunch after the meeting followed by an afternoon of sewing. For those taking Gail’s bag class, we will start on Saturday afternoon. Those who are not taking the class can use the afternoon as a sewcial. We WILL have an Auffle Raffle, so bring your lightly used items to share and go home with someone new. We can set them out early and draw for them after lunch.

Sunday October 20th, we will continue with the class with Gail. We can start at 8:30AM.

Please note that there is homework to be done prior to the class start on Saturday afternoon. Let me know if you need the handouts. I can email them to you or print them and meet up in town to give you hard copies.

The agenda is:
Reports from officers:
​President – Krispi Staude
​Vice President – Lynn Weatherill
​Treasurer – Linda Cooper
​Secretary- Julie Weaver
Reports from Committees:
​Hospitality – Joanne Hinkle, Krispi Staude and Julie Weaver

Piece,
Krispi

Requested : Healing Quilts For Peace Island Cancer Center

We received this request for healing quilts yesterday via our website.

It from Jackie Goldfarb

“…Hello!

My name is Jackie Goldfarb and I am a Peace Island Medical Center Volunteer. Recently I agreed to help with Cancer Care. You may be aware of us through Kathy Chadwick our past committee chairperson. I am writing today to first thank you for your thoughtful generosity in making quilts and donating them to cancer patients at Peace Health. They are received with such joy and gratitude by all who need them. It provides great comfort when they are going through treatment!! You truly have been their angels!
I received an email today from the Cancer department saying they would love to have more quilts as they are getting very low.
I am wondering if any of you have the time or opportunity to provide more quilts?  
If yes, then my heartfelt thank you in advance. If no, thank you for your consideration and if you could give me a suggestion as to who else I might contact it is greatly appreciated.
I have a Board meeting Wednesday and I will let them know I contacted you.
All the best and again thank you for your support.
Jackie Goldfarb…”
