The Lick Skillet Quilt Guild donated over 100 pillowcases to the Second Chance women's shelter. The director of Second Chance gave us a presentation on how Second Chance helps the women, and their children, in the Calhoun, Cleburne and Talladega counties. You can find out more about Second Chance here. You can also drop off donations at their thrift store in downtown Anniston at 304 South Wilmer. Unfortunately I did not get a picture of all the wonderful pillowcases before they were packed up!
During the meeting the floor was opened up for discussion. The main topic was whether or not to keep the Block of the Month program the same. Currently it is a no obligation to participate part of our meetings. If you feel so inclined, and have the time, you make 1 (unless otherwise specified) block as demonstrated at the meeting. You bring your finished block to the following meeting and your name will go into the pool along with the names of all those who also made a block. A lucky winner will be chosen to get all of the blocks made that month. The lucky winner then gets to pick and demonstrate the BOM for the next meeting.
If you have any ideas or suggestions as to how we can change up the BOM program make sure to contact Karen, our president, before the next meeting. We will be voting on the fate of the BOM program at the October meeting.
During the meeting it was proposed that a website be started. Yours truly was assigned the task of webmaster.
Show and Tell:
(sorry I still don't know every one, and I didn't take notes, so if you made the quilt please let me know so I can give you credit!)
What a busy and productive September!!
