SOCIAL - Kathy Sands & Gloria Pingry

Welcome back Quilters. Just kick back and have a cup of coffee or tea, some munchies and let’s relive our Summer vacations!


Welcome back to another great year as a Member of the Lake Oconee Quilt Guild!  In case you haven’t heard,  Mary Ellen’s house sold and so she will not be the President this year.  This means that, as Vice President, I was moved into the Presidency.  I am excited about working with the great Board Members who were already in place and ready to start the new Guild year!
The Board met on July 11 to begin planning what promises to be a fabulous year.  It was decided that the September meeting would be a perfect time for each Program Chair to fill us in on the plans for the new Guild year.  Want to know how to access the list the Guild’s library books?  Ready to learn about the exciting challenge Cookie has planned for us this year; and how about the plans for the December and June socials?  And, of course, everyone wants to start marking their calendars with the programs planned for us to enjoy.  Be sure to come to the September meeting to get these questions and others answered! 
The September meeting is also the perfect time to get reacquainted with your quilting buddies while enjoying treats provided by the Board Members.  It is also the time to show your completed projects during what is always an awesome Show and Tell.  In addition, it’s a great meeting to bring Visitors to so that they can get excited about the new Guild year, too!
Looking forward to seeing you in September!

We are looking forward to the 2020 Guild year!  Currently there are 104 Members and 53 of those have paid their dues for the upcoming year.  There's still time to send in your dues so you don't have to stand in line at the September meeting.  We will also be updating our Member photographs for the website at the meeting, so plan to look your best!  We look forward to seeing all of you on September 3rd.
RAFFLE TABLE - Anneleas Greene & Sonya Winterrowd

We have diligently been searching for unique items for you! Guess what? BINGO! See you in September.


Tickets for our raffle quilt will be printed and ready to pick up at our October meeting.  Each Member is asked to take a pack of 30 tickets for $25 (cash or checks payable to LOQG).

Tickets are sold for $1 each or 6 for $5.  Start thinking of your list of prospective buyers since this is one of our main fund raisers and helps us to have such good programs.


If you are a new Member, or if you would like to update your photograph that is currently in the Member Photo Directory, please be prepared to have your photograph taken by Ed Kercado during the September Guild Meeting.  Ed will have his camera equipment set up and ready to "strike your beauty"!
