September is here, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again. Hope your summer challenge is going well. We'll have the reveal at the September meeting.

Don't forget the Wiltwyck Quilters Guild show “Quilts in the Valley” on Oct 6 &7 . Our own member, Debbie Brown, will be the speaker.

Sign-ups for the OCTOBER Eleanor Levie Workshop are still open, send your registration to Janet.
Coming in October Eleanor Levie will be our speaker Oct 17 and workshop class teacher
October 18. Elly will bring us her high energy fun outlook. The workshop will be Nine Patch
Gone Wild. Bring out your fabrics, those fun things you don't know what to do with, and jazz up
a basic 9 patch. You’ll love the process, sharpen your skills, and leave with wildly exciting quilt
blocks for potholders, a tote, a table runner, a wall hanging or quilt of any size. We’ll talk design
ideas, too, for quilting and finishing so you will leave eager to complete your unique, original
piece. Included in this mailing is the sign up-sheet for the October Workshop Registration, send
