June Happenings

 The GCQ guild presented a quilt to Paula Atcitty.  She lost her home, vehicles, family dogs and ATV's to a fire recently.  Paula is a local gal, graduating from San Juan High and is now a dialysis nurse at the Blue Mountain Hospital.  We were glad so glad that we could give her a little "comfort" during this tragic time!

The guild met at the county library June 15th.  DeAnn Ivins was the presenter and did a super demonstration on making rag quilts.  She does this on a regular basis at the Bluff Fort.  It was very interesting and looked like a lot of fun to do.

Charity Sew Weekends - March, April and May

Our guild has been very busy working on projects for the Festival of Trees for Primary Children's Hospital.  For the past 3 months we have met for "weekend sews" to add to our stash of donated items.  We have accomplished so much!  Quilts, receiving blankets, placemats, aprons, pot holders, and more quilts - just to name a few!  There is something about meeting with all your quilting buddies for a weekend and sewing (and of course eating).  And the sense of accomplishment is tremendous!  We also have show and tell with the finished projects or personal projects.  Below is a few.

Bonnie does amazing things with tricot!

February Charity Sew Weekend a HUGE success!!

Our guild has decided to put a lot of effort into contributing to the Festival of Trees to benefit Primary Children's Hospital as our charity for the year.  We held a "sew weekend"  on the 19th and 20th.  Many ladies attended and we accomplished a lot!  Material donated by Riley Blake was available for us to "create" with.  Blankets, quilts, pot holders, aprons, table runners, and place-mats were some of the items completed.  Extra material was also taken home to do projects with.  Snacks aplenty kept us nourished (well full anyway) and we sewed from morning till night both days.  Everyone was so excited to be working on this event.  It was such a success we decided to do 
another weekend in March!!!
