July meeting was held at the Black Building after quilts were hung and those attending the meeting checked them all out.  Anne Rost introduced herself as our new president and we all need to support her in the things she is hoping to accomplish to enhance our guild and  build our membership in the coming year.  After the meeting there was a demo of the Quilt Turning.

 Ann Joyce has lost a table she brought to the show.  It is approximately 36 inches tall with a round top about 10 inches around and a smaller shelf close to the bottom of the table.  Let me know if you have it and we make arrangements to meet.  Thanks for your help.

HAPPY NEWS – Jean Stevens

I wanted to let everyone know that our granddaughter, Abigail Rose Bivin, arrived August 1, weighing 6lbs. 9 oz. and 20.5 inches. I’ve been busy “playing” with her older sister, Kennedy, who’s 3 ¾.  Since she spent 4 days & nights with me the first week I was here (during move) and then the same while Mom was in hospital, I haven’t even gotten to look at anything sewing/quilting related. Kennedy starts preschool next week so the schedule will change and if things work out, I will be coming back to the cool mountain air towards the end of August. Have a wonderful August - Jean
