The January 2022 meeting will be at the Fruitville Library on Saturday, January 15. The Library doors open at 10 a.m. and it is located at 100 Coburn Rd (exit 210 East) off I-75 in Sarasota. A short business meeting and final plans for our Airing of the Quilts on February 5th will be discussed. Bring a quilt for Show and Tell.
The January Program will be presented by the Gift Team showing the 2022 Guild Blocks. Bring all your tools and lunch - see details on Program tab or click here.
December's Show and Tell was small but colorful. See the quilts on the Show and Tell tab or click here.
The highlight of the December Holiday Party was the Raffle Quilt Drawing - the lucky winner was Sue T.
The Gifting committee delivered 110 Gifting Quilts this month to Sallie House and Lutheran Services of Florida/Safe Children Coalition. Thankful to all SMQG members for their generosity. As a non-profit group, we are blessed with talented, caring members.
Here are a few emails to the Prog Mgr. from the caseworkers at Safe Children in anticipation of delivery to their office:
“OMG!!!!!!!!!! If you can grab some that would be so awesome. Whatever amount. We have a case right now with four children in need. And a boy in need! However many!! Thank you so much!” “That is so nice of them!! Thank your friend and her group for us”. “Wow, that’s impressive! Quilts are expensive and take hours and hours to make!” “What an outstanding gesture”
