We are now in turkey month! Have you been working on Thanksgiving table runners, holiday decorations etc? I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

As a reminder, Lynn has asked us to invite a friend to each of these programs if we can!
Thanks to all of you who attended the thread lecture. Your swag has arrived, and I will be delivering it to you by Halloween. Please be patient, I will get it to you, I promise. If you happen to be traveling through the exciting borough of Malvern and want to do a porch pick up, let me know (910-381-8214 or email@example.com) and I’ll leave it on my porch.
November - Beth of Eva Paige Quilts will be demonstrating her “accordion” method for scrap quilting. She has created a way that you can sew scraps together into half-square triangle accordions and make beautiful tops. She will be showing us the methods as well as having a trunk show. If, after the meeting, there is enough interest, I will be setting up a Zoom class (likely on a Saturday) for us to learn the method fully. This would not be covered by the guild, but the more interested, the less it would cost us as a guild!
In December we will be playing Quilto on Zoom. So wear your favorite ugly sweater (there’s a prize) and plan to have a cocktail or mocktail and join us for some Quilto.
Membership - Bob & Kathy DeCarli and Marianne Caporale
The last Zoom meeting was well attended we had 21 of our 30 members and one guest. It was good to see Stephanie again. The speaker was great, thanks Jen. I hope I get some 28 weight thread in my stocking this Christmas. I have been sort of good. I’m sure Bob will have something to say about that.Martha Hopkins won the guild door prize generously provided by Ellen McMillen. If you have a sewing item you would like to donate to the next meeting please let me know. The speaker provided a lovely door prize won by Elizabeth Young.

Thank you to everyone who made me those beautiful blocks over the summer. They are so pretty and I promise to get it on the make-it-into-a-quilt schedule. I really appreciate all the time and effort you all put into the blocks. Kelly Meanix
