January 2020 Newsletter

President's Letter
Happy Holidays Guild Members,

I’m excited for our January program. It’s a great way to share our knowledge with each other and I hope we have more of these moments. Give us some ideas or other techniques you’d be interested in seeing or sharing. I’d like to hear from you. 

We are coming to the end of the year. What a fast one we’ve had! It’s always a good time to reflect on what special events occurred this past year. Were they challenging, encouraging, or surprising? Has it made you stronger or given you a new outlook? Well, I hope it will inspire you on your 2020 projects. As for me, I’ve had plenty of of ups and downs this year. It’s been an incredible journey. In retrospect, I’ve seen nothing but love  through it all. I’m surrounded by my wonderful friends as a great support group. It warms my heart to know I have only to reach out and there is at least one who it’s there to share my good and bad times. It’s wonderful. And thank you. 

I want to wish everyone a peaceful and relaxing holiday season.

Bring on 2020!! 😁
Helen Hofbauer

Happy New Year!
We will be doing a "Round Robin" of sorts. Rescheduled from last year.

We will be working on charity quilts. 
Details at a later time.

I'm still "truing up" the rest of our guild year, so that's all I have for now.
Have a merry Christmas, happy Chanukah, and Happy New Year!

Sampler Sew Along - Kelly Meanix
I hope you all are excited about starting our new Sampler Sew Along! I sent out the helpful hints page a few weeks ago. If you have it, save it or print it out. If you need it email me and I will make sure you get them.

In January we will have our Round Robin and I will demonstrate how to paper piece. It is not hard! I think once many of you learn how to do it you will like it and use it! We will have some blocks to paper piece in February for our Sampler Sew Along.

The first blocks are on the easy side to get your feet wet. As always, at any point if you have any problems contact me and I will be happy to help you out. Remember it is only 3 blocks a month, not hard I know you can do it!

As soon as the newsletter goes out, I will send out the first 3 blocks. If you do not receive them, be sure to let me know.

Sad news from Quilt Odyssey
"It is with heavy hearts, we announce Quilt Odyssey will not be taking place this year. Due to health concerns we must cancel the show scheduled for July 23-25, 2020 in Hershey, PA. We apologize to our Quilt Odyssey family including our registrants, visitors, merchants, sponsors, teachers and staff. Quilt Odyssey has been part of our family for two decades and this decision didn’t come without many thoughtful hours of consideration for our entire community. We will miss seeing all of you this summer.
Because the rumors will fly ­ please note officially: We did not sell the company, nor did we partner or merge with any organization. We will still have future retreats and we will not rule out a future quilt show, but right now, a focus on health is necessary.
Our Quilt Odyssey facebook and website will still be here to announce any upcoming future events. Our email is still live and we will answer any message if you send them thru facebook or email as we are able.
We appreciate your love for all things Quilt Odyssey and wish you health and happiness this holiday season and into the new year.
With love,
The Molino Family"

Corresponding Secretary 
I am the corresponding secretary for the coming guild year.  I am asking each guild member to help me fulfill the mission of the Corresponding Secretary position.  Part of the position responsibilities is what is called "sunshine".  Sunshine is where cards are sent to members of the guild that have been ill, hospitalized, have lost a loved one, or are struggling in some other way.  Since I don't talk with each and every guild member consistently, I will need you all to e-mail me if you know of someone who could use some Sunshine in their lives from Penn Oaks!

Thanking you in advance for your assistance this year with this endeavor.

Suffrage Movement
After the fun guild Christmas party with Quilto, I thought to look for specific suffrage-related quilt blocks thinking maybe "Economy" would be one of them. (You had to be there to get it regarding "Economy"...…..)     The name sure seems to relate to the late 19th and early 20th century - doesn't it???     Didn't find specific blocks -- I think they used mainly signature-type blocks that could be written on - but did find these two sites which you might also enjoy (and which may debunk my theory about suffrage quilt blocks.  :)  ) 

Many interesting posts related to various aspects of women's fight for the vote.

and 

(For this blog, you need to scroll to the bottom of the 1st page and click on the dates -- there will be links to each block there.  This is very interesting as they also have suffrage-related information with each block.

December 2019 Newsletter

President's Letter
Hello Guild Members!

We only have two more meetings for this year, and two major holidays to keep everyone in a stir! Just remember to stop and take the time to tell your loved ones how thankful you are for them.

I had a few interesting suggestions and ideas for the request I asked of you last month. Let’s see how we can work with them to give you a great guild to enjoy! More info to come...

If anyone was wondering, I did get that quilt done in time for Thanksgiving. It will be a nice throw to help decorate in the living room when my guests come to visit. 😁

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you at our next meeting!

Helen Hofbauer


Programs - Denise Blake and Jen Burke
Greetings fellow quilters,
Are we all ready for the holidays???? How about a break from all those chores and have some fun?
Our December (9th) meeting will be just that. Fun and games! Yay!
We will also be doing our annual block swap. Make a winter/holiday themed block 12 1/2'' x 12 1/2". Wrap it up and we will draw names and pick a new block. Don't put your name on it the package, it's supposed to anonymous. But, please do, sign your block. You may also make more than one. How ever many you make, you will get that many back. It's a lot of fun.

Here's a brief look ahead:

January 13, 2020
Happy New Year!
We will be doing a "Round Robin" of sorts. Rescheduled from last year.
Carolyn Davis will be demoing binding and facing your quilt to make it "show worthy".
Helen Hofbauer will be demoing how to make continuous bias binding.

In honor of the holiday, please bake your favorite seasonal treat that your family loves and bring a drink for the group instead of a treat if a star follows your name. Switch your responsibility with a friend if you can't attend. 

Ways & Means - Robin McMillen
Hi Quilters

Please continue to collect items quilting and other items as well as you clean up the cutter.  Old Jewelry, Chotchkes, knick-knacks, kitchen serving pieces etc for the Ways and Means Committee.  If at all possible please hang onto them in your space.  Mine is filling up.  If you cannot hang onto them, then call me (610)836-1363 and we can make arrangements.  The Sale will be on a Saturday next fall, more details to follow.  

Recipe recommendation.  

My family loves this Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pie from Martha Stewart.  I made one little tweak.  There is a chocolate layer that you add to the top of the crust before pouring in the filling.  Martha's chocolate layer was to hard to cut through so I made a tweak.  Melt 3 oz of choc in the microwave 30 seconds at a time then add 1 1/2 TBSP of heavy cream.  Mix it up and then pour it over the crust this works so much better.  

Also - I just use Ghiradelli chocolate chips not all the fancy chocolate in the recipe, makes it easier and cheaper.

Community Outreach - Elaine Mayer
HI Penn Oaks Quilters!

I am your new Community Outreach Chair. I have been talking with other members, and members of the board, to gain some insight on the goals and expectations of this committee. We aim to hold three different charitable programs to donate items of need. I am happy to accept suggestions that will be presented quickly at the December meeting (or via email) for a vote from the group. Please be patient as I get my feet wet; feel free to email me at elainemaye@gmail.com. I look forward to seeing you all at the December meeting.

    The November meeting was great. We had 29 member and 2 guests. Sadly we said good bye to Rob Lodi but she promised to visit when she is in the area.
     Our speaker for the evening was Brita Nelson her work was helpful to those among us who collect scraps but have no idea what to do with them.
     The quiltalong produced a wonderful collection of quilts the photos have been posted by Kelly.
She did a tremendous amount of work putting this together. The “proof as they say is in the results “
   Everyone who participated were delighted with the quilts and with Kelly’s help we learned a lot and stretched our skills. Thanks and a round of applause.

Lynn Telson won the drawing.

There's a reason why I always find good ideas at the blog, Diary of a Quilter! She has fun and simple yet adorable ideas. Now here's a fun idea for all those quilts you will make this year! Maybe even include it in your holiday quilts!

Sew Along Finish!----Kelly Meanix
Wow, Wow, Wow! Ladies you all did such a wonderful job on your quilts! I am  beyond happy so many of you participated and finished! Congratulations to Kathy DeCarli on winning the $25.00 gift card to The Old Country Store. I wonder what she will buy with it????

I am so proud of all of you for jumping in and doing something that took a lot of courage and time having no idea what it was going to look like! They all are different and unique, just like all of you. Now I look forward to Show and Tell for the quilted finishes.

I wanted to let you know that the sew along pattern is by a lovely woman named, Diane Knott and her blog is called Butterfly Threads Quilting. She has another sew along that started in September, so be sure to check her blog!

December 23rd I will be sending out the January newsletter and our first 3 blocks for our new sew along. I'm thinking we will call this one our Sew Along Sampler. After December (which are the January blocks), you will receive the blocks every month on the 1st. I am giving you some extra time to get started by releasing the first ones in December. So the second installment will come out on February 1, 2020.
We will be making (3) 6" blocks per month. For a total of 30 blocks. If you would like to make your quilt bigger, just make more blocks. 

This time we are going to add some paper piecing or foundation piecing to make the blocks. Not all, just a few to introduce some of you to this technique. So make sure you are at the January meeting to see my demo on this very accurate way to sew! I promise you it is not hard.

I will have lots of instructions and tips to help you along. Once again you will pick out your theme (think Christmas, Halloween, Reproductions etc.) and or colors. So start checking your stash and fill in if you "need" to so you have a quilt you love. I am also leaving the quilt settings up to you as well. Think about sashing, maybe a square in a square, sewing them right next to each other, or maybe a very out of the box setting. Keep your eyes open for just the right thing.

Congratulations once again on creating such lovely quilts! You all are so very creative 😊

More on Women's Fight for the Right to Vote: 
Many of this month's posts in the Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog highlight prominent women in the suffrage movement.  There is also a post entitled "The Night of Terror" posted 11/13/2019 which highlights suggrage protestors being jailed for picketing in front of the White House.  The Atlantic magazine has this recent article (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/06/most-dangerous-women-american-politics/590959/) talking about the same topic.  In our season of celebrations, abundance and gifting as well as a nation that is politically divided, one has to ask oneself if today you would do similar things in a fight for a principle or belief.

November 2019 Newsletter


 President's Letter
Greeting Guild Members!
Fall came upon me like a tidal wave this year. So much going on and so much to do…and a few surprises popping up, too! But I still need to make time to just stop and enjoy the crisp fresh morning air the change in leaves…my favorite part of fall.
I’m looking at new ideas for the guild. Things that will engage you as a group or individual. We need to reach so many interest levels and skill levels. How? And what would be the best way to do that? I want to hear from all of you. Please send me an email of thoughts and ideas you would like to have or what you would like to see for our guild. Remember, this is just a brainstorming event I’m putting together. I want to know what you’re looking for from our guild.
An example, how about “10 Minute Tut” added to our meeting? If there is a technique you want more help with, and someone is willing show it, we can get a moment at the end of the meeting to make time for a brief visual tutorial for you. Those of you interested can stay to watch. We would need ideas and time to research who in our guild can give the tutorial. We have great resources among ourselves!
That’s just one thought brought to my attention, and I like it!
I’m still working on finishing up some UFO’s! I found a lap quilt that’s perfect for the fall that I just must complete! A couple more borders...

 
Wish me luck to have it done by Thanksgiving! 😊

Brita Nelson (pronounced Breeta) www.questioningquilter.com, will be joining us for a lecture and a class. Her lecture, Every Last Crumb, an Adventure in Scrap Quilting will give us an insight into helping us with our leftover scraps and doing something meaningful with them. Our class will be: Crumbs to Quilts where we take scraps and make our own fabric with them.  It's like we would create our very own custom fabric. The class will be 1-4 pm We now have 10 people. We can have up to 20. If anyone else is interested, please email me. I will be sending info to each student in a separate email.

December 9, 2019
It's never too early to start thinking of Christmas. We'll be having our holiday party. One thing we always do, and I'm not about to break tradition now, is a Christmas or winter themed quilt block exchange. The block will be 121/2'. You can piece it, applique it, embroider it, bead it, whatever comes to mind. It is strictly optional, but always fun to participate in. We put all the blocks, wrapped, so we can't see them, in a pile and draw names. Typically you don't get one you made. However many you make, you get back. I'm pretty sure some of us have enough to make a wall hanging by now. In fact, if anyone has completed a project from their Christmas blocks, why not bring it in for show and tell? We would all love to see them. We'll be playing some fun games, also. Haven't decided how we'll do goodies. I'll get back to you on that.

That's it, so far. Any questions feel free to contact me.

Sew Along -Kelly Meanix
Please remember to finish up your quilts and bring them to the November meeting. Everyone who finished their top (it does not need to be quilted) will be eligible to win a $25.00 gift card to the Old Country Store. We will pull one name at the November meeting. ****The last border that makes it king size is optional and does not need to be included to be eligible win.****
I can't wait to see all your finished quilts!

Sew Along for 2020. 
After reading all the suggestions you sent to me, we will be making 6" blocks for 2020. I was going to make it multiple sizes but decided to do something more simple. I will have very detailed instructions and cutting sizes to avoid the confusion we had this past year. I am also making up a quick tips sheet to help you.
We will make 3 blocks per month from January through and including October. You will end up with a total of 30 blocks. You can make it into a wall hanging, add some sashing or make more blocks for a bigger quilt, the choice is up to you. I will not have a "plan" on how to set the blocks or color suggestions.
.
I will send out the first 3 patterns, with instructions, in December. I know there is prime sewing time between Christmas and the New Year. It will give you a chance to get a head start. Start thinking about your colors or themes that you might want to do. If you want all the same backgrounds consider buying a few yards of fabric and set it aside.
If you decide scrappy or planned colors, this will be a very nice sampler quilt.


If you want to do something that is more planned............
This is not the quilt we are doing!
If you want to try another kind of sampler, go check out Butterfly Threads, Seeing Stars Sew Along. Diane Knott was the creator of our sew along that we are finishing up. Seeing Stars is her brand new one!


Corresponding Secretary 
I am the corresponding secretary for the coming guild year.  I am asking each guild member to help me fulfill the mission of the Corresponding Secretary position.  Part of the position responsibilities is what is called "sunshine".  Sunshine is where cards are sent to members of the guild that have been ill, hospitalized, have lost a loved one, or are struggling in some other way.  Since I don't talk with each and every guild member consistently, I will need you all to e-mail me if you know of someone who could use some Sunshine in their lives from Penn Oaks!

From Maureen Carlson
Hello Penn Oaks Members --  As several of the most recent Pennsylvania Peacemaker blog posts (http://pennsylvaniapiecemaker.blogspot.com/)  talk about, quilts were an important part of the suffrage movement – both to help raise funds (can we say raffle quilts???) or to give as gifts to donors and supporters.  Did you know that you can participate in a 2020 suffrage quilt?  The Susan B. Anthony Museum and house (https://susanb.org/)  {We all know who Susan B. Anthony is – right???) is sponsoring a group quilt.  Go to:  https://susanb.org/2020quiltproject/ for details.  The finished quilt will be displayed in various public venues.  Be part of future history and contribute a block!
