President’s Message
Hi ,
The Seven Sisters Quilt Show is almost
here. I’m very excited! We have all been working very hard
to put on a great regional quilt show. If you have signed up
to work, our committee coordinators will remind you when
you are volunteering. The show is an important part of our
fund raising and really runs on volunteers.
Now the best part, the SEVEN SISTERS QUILT SHOW - I
can’t wait until June28-29. I have not decided what I like the
best. Is it all the wonderful pieces of art on display created
with colorful fabric, a needle and thread and of course many
hours at our sewing machines? We always have simply
amazing quilts, wall hangings and garments to inspire us
and expand our creative minds. I do love shopping also, at all
49 vendors, selling colorful quilting fabrics, patterns, books,
threads and sewing machines so I could try to make a quilt
for next year’s show with the fabric and patterns I discovered. Or, just make a quilt for me to enjoy.
Oh wait, I still need to finish one more quilt for this year’s
show before the June11 deadline. Off to quilting it now…
Happy Quilting,
Believe or not!!

June Program
Summer break is here. Let’s celebrate! Join us for a potluck lunch—salads and
desserts please.
There will also be a "University Day" featuring fabulous learning opportunities
with some very special guild members who have graciously volunteered their time
and expertise! It is a wonderful chance for everyone to learn something new. The
sessions will be about 15 minutes each and rotate so everyone will have a chance
to see each station. The demos include Terrie Eskew-Blanket Stitch on the Machine, Linda Lyon- Quilt as You Go using 2 1/2 inch strips, JoAnn Ontiveros-Crazy
Four Patch Block, Colette Evans- Continuous Bias Binding and Julie Wajda- Setting Triangles.
Guild will furnish plates, etc. Just bring a favorite dish....

Things to remember:
Bring your quilts, challenge quilts and garments to the June 11 meeting as this is the final date for submitting
them. Be sure the quilts have their 4 inch sleeve. If the quilt is to be judged, be sure the label is covered. For
the Challenge quilt, be sure your name is NOT on the quilt itself. Quilts may also be taken to
the home of Sandy Clutter or Arlene Rafferty prior to June 11. Call them to make arrangements.
If you are volunteering, be sure that you have received the Volunteer Information sheet and the Frequently
Asked Questions. Both are also available on the AQGCC.net web site. You will sign in at the Security table in
the lobby when you arrive for your first shift and receive your name tag. The same name
tag can be used throughout the show. Once you have completed your final volunteer shift, be sure to return
the name tag holder to the same Security table.
Admissions wrist bands and DVDs will be for sale at the June meeting if you haven't purchased yours yet. It
really speeds up admission at the show to have your wristband in advance. $10 for a wristband (admission for
both days) and $10 for a DVD. These must be paid for in cash or by check (made out to AQGCC).
A big THANK YOU to each of you who has already volunteered to help during the show! "Many hands make
light work."
