September 1 meeting: An Important Announcement

Dear Members,

 

The board has decided that, for the safety of our members, only vaccinated members can attend this Wednesday’s meeting. This was a very difficult decision for us to make, but Covid numbers and hospitalizations are increasing. Safety is paramount for our members. Seattle restaurants and some businesses are asking that patrons show proof of vaccinations. Additionally, we are asking everyone to wear a mask at all times. We will be seated at tables which will accommodate 4 to a table. The Treasure Table will be outside on the deck by the kitchen. Doors will remain open to allow for more fresh air movement. 

Please do not attend if you have a cold, fever, sore throat or other possible Covid-19 symptoms.  There will be a short business meeting for announcements, a presentation by Cathy and Jan on raw edge appliqué, and then sharing. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. 

Take Care and Stay Safe,

Anne Puckett

President

 

STARTING IN-PERSON MEETINGS - JULY 7, 2021

Hello quilters. Our Guild is starting up in-person meetings again. Many of our members

are vaccinated.  Those not vaccinated, please wear a mask. We will be meeting at the

Yacht club July 7 at 11:30 with a 'get to know you again' kickoff.  Please bring a sack lunch

and beverage. We will be seated at tables meant for 8-10 people, but will only have 4-5 per table. Bring one project you have completed during COVID to share with the group. Come and see what we are about if you are not a member, but are interested in checking us out. We welcome quilters from beginners to experts. In fact, we even had one new member unpack a brand new sewing machine at a sew-in to learn how to quilt. People helped her getstarted. She is now an art quilter.
