June 9, 2016, and SHOW info
Sorry about not sending these letters on a regular basis – life has interfered…..
Attached you will see a photo of Dawn’s and Mary H’s quilts using the same pattern, but different colour ways. What a difference colour makes! We will be displaying these quilts side by side at our show (only a month away!!!). Last week we distributed registration forms for items to be entered in the show, and so far I have only two returned. I am attaching a copy of the registration form to this letter, so you can download and print it out for yourself if you didn’t attend the last two meetings. Deadline for submission of entries is June 22. I need time to list all the entries, then pass on that info to Nancy McH, who will type the labels for each entry. As you can imagine, this takes TIME! I would encourage you to get your registration forms in to me ASAP, either by mail, email, or in person. You will see posters around the island this week….if you can find them under the many others posted on most boards!
We also wished Wendy F happy trails as she and Ron move from White Head to Sherbrooke, NS, where Ron is assuming a pastor’s position. Wendy is one of our founding members, and was instrumental in allowing us to call the NH Baptist hall our base.
If you have questions about the show, please phone Mary H. at 662-3978, or me at 662-8988. Also, please beat the bushes for quilts that have not been shown in our show before. Do you know this is our FIFTH biennial show and sale? Lastly, we will need MEN to help with fetching the stands from Mary’s shed on July 6th (evening) as well as with set up on Thursday, July 7th.
