From your President...

 I hope that everyone had a great summer and were able to visit family and friends.
I am very thankful for those who were able to help at Art in The Park and also
contribute items to sell. We had a great turnout and I am hopeful that we can do it
again next year. We have Salad Supper at the first meeting of the year and we also
will have some program changes. Can’t wait to see everyone!

Amanda Blackburn, your current and awesome quilt guild president!

PS: Heads up! We are going to do a shake up of the guild meeting to try some new
ideas out. Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.​

State Fair Substitute Needed
for Jan - Aug. 29 and Aug. 31:
PPQG Friends,
First of all Thank You for all you do to make the SF a great success. My main job as superintendent is getting quilts entered, judged, hung, labeled and everything ready for opening day. This year I am hoping to take a "break" from my 23 days at the fair. Can anyone help me out? I am looking for several people to be my substitute on Tues. Aug. 29 and Thurs. Aug. 31. My plan is for 6 “substitutes” (1 person for each time slot): Tues. Aug. 29: 10:00-2:00, 2:00-6:00, 6:00-9:15 Thurs. Aug. 31: 10:00-2:00, 2:00-6:00, 6:00-9:15 This time schedule covers the times when white glove volunteers are leaving and coming so there is constant coverage at the front of the exhibit area. Your duties are not difficult - watching the main doors of the exhibit area, answering questions, etc. Linda Kruse will have keys to open and lock up the exhibits. I would be so grateful and of course, I will send you a gate entrance ticket for free admission to the fair.
Thank You!
Jan Sittler,
NSF Quilt Superintendent
