WOW! What a great first virtual meeting and I was so pleased many of you (58 members and guests) decided to join us. Thank you for coming. And of course a big thank you to Annie Houston for organizing the Zoom meeting. She did a great job of organizing the display of charity quilts for our Philanthropy Chair Marcia Ulrich and the show and share projects. Thank you to all those members who sent in photos of their quarantine projects. Some of those projects are shown below. Since most of us are still pretty much staying at home I wonder what will be presented next month -- Saturday, July 11th.
But of course the stars of the program were the studios/sewing rooms of Leslie Gardiner and Pat Siegel. It is always fun to see how other people organize their work areas and display their quilts. Leslie and Pat didn't let us down with their photo presentations and descriptions of their sewing areas. Thank you, Leslie and Pat.
Below are some photos of their studios.
Once again we will be doing a Show and Share and get an insight into two more fabulous sewing studios. This time we will be visiting with Janna Calkins and Kathy Dunham.
If you would like to join us at this Zoom meeting and you are not a member of our guild, please contact Annie Houston by clicking here, and she will send you the link for the meeting. The deadline to do that is Friday, July 10th.

Eleven stores are in the run this year. Each store has a different party theme, so come out and enjoy. The hours have been shortened but the fun is still there. For more information go to quiltersrun.com
