September meeting notes

We had a fun meeting last night. Carol gave us an excellent pressing lesson and then we had one of the most successful trash-to-treasure sales ever! We made a whopping $378.42!! Thanks to everyone who provided stuff to buy and to the buyers. All of the leftover fabric will go to Estelle for donation to her friend who knows all of the organizations around town who can use the fabric.

Other notes:

- Virginia Quilt Museum: Elsa is looking for volunteer docents for October 31. The exhibits are:
  • Caryl Bryer Fallert Gentry's 30 Quilts for 30 Years
  •  100 Years of Quilts: The Unger Family
  •  Treasures of the Vault: Curator's Choice
  •  Charlottesville Area Quilt Guilds
- The September block is the Shoo Fly block. You can make one or more to hand in or make them for yourself for a row quilt. For 1 row you would need 5 blocks with spaces to make the row 48" wide.
- Susan Ryan shared a letter that she received from McGuire VA Hospital thanking us for the quilts that we delivered earlier this year.
- Did you know that you can donate to your favorite charity every time you shop on Amazon? Just use the site . There you can select your charity and then shop as normal. Every time you shop a small percentage will be donated to your charity. Our two favorite charities are represented there: Virginia Quilt Museum and Western Hanover Emergency Action Team (WHEAT).

- Sewing Friday and Saturday is this weekend! Bring your machine and lunch and join us!
