Lake Oconee Quilt Guild Newsletter   
November 2019
The Guild Meeting will be Tues, Nov 5, at the Lutheran Church.
In this issue:

SOCIAL - Kathy Sands & Gloria Pingry

Welcome to November, the month to honor our Veterans and give thanks for family and friends. Since we will have Veterans and their families with us for this meeting, I'm hoping there will be volunteer Bakers who will bring some special baked goods for the meeting.
Also, there will be a signup sheet for our Christmas luncheon. We're hoping to have soups, breads and rolls, light salads and a few desserts for this special December meeting.
Thanks to all.



If you missed the last meeting, you missed the news that we will have a Spring Retreat again this year!  Sally McKinney and Kay Dejno have agreed to chair this event for March 10-13 at Little Ocmulgee State Park. Space is limited, so send your $25 registration fee to Sally and start planning your projects! 

Speaking of Kay Dejno, she was the winner of the Gemini cutting system from the Raffle table.  You never know what Anneleas and Sonya have up their sleeves, so don’t forget to bring your $$$ to the meeting.

The program at our last meeting was extremely interesting as we learned about the history of heirloom sewing.  More than a few Members left inspired to sew some memories for future generations.  Our next meeting will also be inspiring as we honor Veterans who bravely served our country.  These Veterans will each be presented with a Quilt of Valor in recognition of their service.  After the presentations, there will be a reception for the Honorees, their families/friends and our Members. Kathy and Gloria are asking Members to bring refreshments that will fit the patriotic theme.

In the afternoon, Shari and Theresa have arranged for a Poinsettia Pillow Painting (PPP) Workshop for Members who registered to take the class.
