You're Invited To Attend

Suring Historical Society
The public is invited to attend and encouraged to bring their own quilts to “The History of Quilting” talk on August 21 for the Suring Historical Society meeting at 7 p.m. in the Library meeting room.
Rhoda E. of the Pineneedle Quilters will be the moderator. Quilts made over the last 100 years will be displayed. Present-day quilts and modern techniques will be shown. Rhoda’s Grandma Adra was an expert Kansas quilter and her quilts will be a part of the display 56 years after she passed on in 1956.
This program was presented to the Mountain Historical Society in July and a wide variety of quilts were on display. Attendees brought their family quilts and stories too. Sheila  and Joan showed their mother, Velma's  quilts, made over her lifetime from age 30 until age 96.

From President Deanna we have a few reminders for our Monday, July 16th meeting:

Quilt Planning Committees will meet at 5:30 prior to the regular meeting.

And now, for the June Show and Tell beauties!

Happy Fourth to You and Directions for the Hanging Sleeve

I hope everyone is having a great 4th and staying cool.  Quite the heat wave we're having but the gardens are loving it especially with the rain last night.

I have posted directions for making the hanging sleeve for our quilts for the show on the Quilt Show Page.  If you have any questions, I can bring a sleeve in for a demonstration to our July meeting.

Have a safe Holiday.
