Hats off to the Quilt Show Committee and the numerous volunteers who
worked together to present a wonderful show! The layout and setting
up went well, the quilts were beautiful and showed the multi-faceted
talents of our membership, the vendors seemed ‘just right’ and Linda
Hunter ‘s presentations were just the perfect addition to the show.
Those who were present at the drawing for the raffle quilt will
remember that there was some question of whether we had reached the
right person (hard to decipher if the phone number ended in 0303 or
0323). The good news is that we have a winner who is delighted -
look for details from Joan Danaher, Keeper of the Quilt.
Please remember that June is the annual picnic – bring a dish to
pass, your table setting and cold drink if you prefer that to tea
and coffee. We will also hold a guild-wide garage sale that day –
not sure you’ll ever use that pattern? Are you ready to part with a
particular fabric/template/book/gizmo of uncertain usage? Bring it
on – you might just find a buyer!
Lake to Lake Agenda
Thank you to all who have prayed for Tim's surgery
and sent good wishes for us. He went thru surgery fine and is glad
to have it behind him. They took a bone graft from his hip and put
it into the space between the two knuckles on the left hand ring
finger. Dr. had been hoping that it would be able to be left in a
bent position, but this was not able to happen. He will have a
straight ring finger.
I promise now that I will get those darned By Laws
Link to Minutes
Figures are as of May 17, without any deposits from the quilt show.
Thoughts and prayers are with all the our Penn Yan friends.

THANKS TO THE QUILT SHOW VOLUNTEERS My list of thanks to everyone is long! We received so many compliments on the friendly reception that visitors to our quilt show received and so much more. It is such a pleasure to work with each and every one of you - your willingness to step up and get things done throughout the show is what makes the show a success. There were so many times that guild members would come and ask if there was anything they could help with or just see a job that was getting done and pitch in to help. Linda Hunter noted that this was a guild that certainly worked well with each other and enjoyed her time with us appraising the quilts and giving us the lectures. The director and staff of the Phelps Community Center are looking forward to seeing the Lake to Lake Quilt Guild again too! Thanks, thanks, thanks to everyone!!
If you missed Linda Hunter's lecture on Charm Squares - never fear - Flo Meredith will have extra copies of the handout for us at the Guild Meeting. (Flo thinks of everything! A very heartfelt thank you to her - we could not have done everything without you!)

Thanks again to everyone, you're all great!
SET-UP and TEAR DOWN: I want to thank everyone including my co chair Dawn Dennis for the outstanding cohesiveness and "Can Do" attitude when we set up the racks, the quilts, and the tear down. Things went really smoothly and you worked so hard. I know we all felt it the next day! The show was awesome. Keep up the good work. Sally Acomb
QUILT ANGELS: Thank you to the Quilt Angels for your wonderful work. You were simply excellent in greeting and talking to all of our attendees and helping all over the building! Bobbi Beckhorn
AFTER LUNCH PROGRAM - Gail Williams
Since June is our annual picnic, and our June program has been moved to November, I thought if any of you are interested we could have “A Sit and Sew” after the picnic. So, if you are working on a quilt, or doing some embroidery or have something going on your knitting needles, whatever you are doing bring it to work on after the luncheon.

WOW - WOW !! The duffle bag full of fat quarters and a few packages of batting received about 120 raffle tickets! Lake to Lake Quilt Guild sold a total of 70 Travel Club Passports (Show and Member sales). The winner of the Duffle Bag of Fat Quarters was a local woman, Cheryl Wolkonowski. She has been wanting to learn to quilt so bought a ticket promising that she would get started if she won!! And she did. Bobbi gave her our membership info and invited her to come to our guild. We hope to see quilts made by her soon!
BY POPULAR DEMAND:
A number of people attending Donna Strelow's Demo on
Hand Quilting at the Quilt Show wanted the name of the marking pen
she recommends! It's a FriXion by Pilot, comes in a number of
colors, cost is approximately $2.63 and it is available at Nancy's,
Leroy's, Ivy Thimble and Sew Creative (and probably other places
including the internet too).
A GREAT SHARE FROM JEAN KRANZ!
This is the recipe "like" Best Press starch.
Note: scent is optional if allergic to scents.
RIDE NEEDED: Are there any quilters in the Geneva, Border City area that would be willing to give me a ride to the meetings, so I can rejoin the guild? Spinal issues prevent me from driving a lot. Just attended the Quilt Show in Phelps. Good job!!! Not enough hand-quilted pieces. Terry W. Boyd email@example.com
