Catskill Mountain Quilters Hall of Fame


I haven't been posting as often or visiting/commenting as often as I normally do, but I have been very tied up with activities with CMQHOF.  As this terms Secretary, I have been sending out a lot of e-mails, hard copy mailings, phone calls, and meetings these past 6 weeks.  Then there was a special event that I will share later.


It was their Spring Meeting/Annual Picnic Monday and this is just the bustle of arriving and setting up.  Everyone was in motion and with over 80 people - a bit confusing and noisy at times.


They line the outer portion of this wonderful pavilion at CD Lane Park, Maplecrest, NY (outside of of Windham NY where that wonderful fabric shop is) with Show & Tell and any guild's raffle quilts.


I just managed to get the raffle quilts as I got rather busy as the event went on.


Yes, you needed to bring some serious cash with you.  Four raffle quilts, raffle baskets, quilt blocks - and then time after the picnic to hit that quilt shop.


There was a rotation of four stations of demonstrations and I taught how to make my little pincushions with soda bottle caps.  And then I had kits made up so everyone got to take one home.  I, also, shared those fun hearts I saw on BARBARA'S post about I Found A Quilted Heart.  My  sample hearts were placed around the  Park after our event was over. 

Good food, wonderful projects shared, super quilters, LOTS of talking.  Good weather added to a great event.

And the official announcement of the newly inducted members - that special event I had to attend was the judging of sponsored members for possible induction.  I sponsored someone as well as was sponsored.

Yes, I am one of the five newly inducted Hall of Fame members.  Special ceremony will be in the Fall.  ALSO, I am on the slate for next term  running for President.  That vote goes to our Fall meeting

Now I have time to get back to my regularly scheduled program - first being to catch up on you folks.  Then I need to re-connect with my machine.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
