Mea Culpa Mea Culpa
Quilt & Needlecraft
Mega Culpa, I was so excited to report on our successful, Bazaar, Quilt, luncheon and bake sale last month, I forgot to thank those that saw to it the show was successful.
Our Show, Bazaar, bake sale, raffle, and our sale table, & luncheon was a booming success. Everything & I mean everything came together. It was so nice to see such support and corporation from our whole club, Eggs guys, husbands et all. A very big thank you to Arden Sulzbach, Jeff Reinhart, Bob Frey, Jack Hichak, Larry Breeding, Trever Holm, George Latimer, Frank Weisent. I’m sorry, sorry, sorry, I know I forgot people but I’m having an extended senior moment into an hour, week, month. Please forgive me and I will correct when I’m corrected.
I’d have to admit it was Arden who came through again leading the way, saving the day. First, he got the Egg guys to help us out and secondly, Arden saw what was needed, went home for supplies and lead the way putting together the A frames for our quilts. It was Jeff and Kathy who single handedly put together the big quilt racks. These displays accented our quilts and showed them handsomely. Lifesavers surely, thank you.
Last month our guest speaker was none other than our own renown Pat Haddock.   Pat taught us all about the ins and outs of joining binding. Pat shared personal secrets on how we could keep everything going in the same direction without any twists or turns. Pat’s hints were invaluable. Pat was uncanny duplicating all, and I mean all the common mistakes we can make and usually do make and how to prevent them. A lesson in teaching as well. Thank you, Pat.,

Mary Ann Frey, President
Penny Breeding, Co-President

       2019 Quilt & Needlecraft Show/Bazaar/Bake Sale/Luncheon and Raffle a tremendous success

The ladies with the needles worked very hard to raise money to support the youth of our community with their continuing education.
No longer is sewing, cooking, mending, and knitting as well as woodshop quality classes in our schools. Kids need to find other means for life living courses. We now have to search high and low to find kids who want to continue learning home economics.
High schools have made scholarships more difficult for the suppliers too. But thank goodness there are groups such as ours who search out students who want to further their education in certain areas. The people of our community, which support our fundraisers, make all things possible for these deserving students.

    

                      Thank you, Linda Walsh,
