June Meeting

Hi All!

A fun meeting last night, per our usual.

Deposit is due next month if you would like to join in on the fun in October at retreat.  Weekend officially begins around 9:00 am on Friday October 25th and goes through October 27th at about 3 ish.  Meals, lodging included in the price for the weekend.

Tips for the month:

A very cool ruler for half square triangles called Bloc Loc… you can visit the manufacturers page here.

A rotary cutter that fits on your finger and would be a great thing for curved cutting.  You can click here and be directed to Amazon to purchase one.

Amelia’s has a mechanized shaver for removing large spots of embroidery.  You can purchase one there currently for $21.95.

If you know where any of the little gadgets can be found locally please let me know and I will post it.

Members Reception

Standard

Most of the ladies on the Members Reception for Genesee Valley Quilt Club are from our group or Brockport as well.  I wanted to share this post to show you all what a splendid job they did.

Vicki tirelessly stitched together some flowers for these beautiful center pieces.  Aren’t they adorable.  She also cut and hemmed the gold lame and anybody that has worked with lame will know what a pain in the behind that is to do.  Kudos Miss Vicki.

DSC_0644 Here is another angle… so pretty.

And then there is the amazing chocolate fountains.  Kathy and Lois, chopped all the fruit, and prepared everything that was needed to pull these beauties off.  There were two chocolate fountains on either side of the room.

DSC_0654Imagine our surprise when everything flowed out smoothly.

DSC_0653And after all that, a glass of wine was in order.  The lovely people from Lake Ontario Wine and Arbor Hill joined us for the festivities. Some enjoyable tastings.

And what, I forgot a picture of the cheese I helped to get?  Okay, so, I had a little part in all this but it certainly doesn’t compare to the work that these ladies did.  Wading through the paperwork of Wegman’s to get some cheese and crackers was a little challenging but nevertheless, easily done.  But these ladies and myself helped to set up the trays and oh, yes, sample to make sure it was okay for the general population.

DSC_0648And Marie, she headed up this whole project/committee.  Our fearless and tireless leader organized, guided and assisted every step of the way.  She had a vision and I think we all pulled it off in a grand way!

Genesee Valley Quilt Show

Standard

Here are the pictures I took from Genesee Valley Quilt Show this past weekend. It is definitely not a comprehensive listing of all the quilts. Mostly the one who caught my eye or held emotional significance for me.

I was very lucky to run into Laila at her award winning quilt. Congratulations Laila!

Lynn MacDonald from our group also one a ribbon. Congratulations Lynn.

So many vendors to shop at.

I really felt it was a stunning quilt show. Very organized and well staffed. It was a joy.

I hope that many of you had the opportunity to go. I ran into so many people there. If you did not have the chance to go, I give you a few photos for a look-see.
