We meet every Thursday morning at the Museum. Ladies work on handquilting in the frame, working on their own projects or projects for the Club to help raise funds for the Museum. We occasionally have classes for small groups. We prefer to teach one on one. The volunteers are happy to share their knowledge. Call or email for more information.
We are very happy to accept donations of fabric, including scraps and unfinished projects, books or any craft items. These donations help us keep the Museum open.
We enjoy a potluck lunch every Thursday, so stop by with a covered dish and join us for lunch.
Monday morning I found a surprise on the Museum front porch, several bags of fabric and notions and on Tuesday another bag was dropped off. I know the one bag was due to moving and downsizing. It’s hard to close one part of your life and start in a new place. We wish everyone the best of luck.
Last week we tried to rehang our quillows on a new rod. The first attempt didn’t do well as everything fell to the floor. This week after three more attempts we had success. All were still hanging when I left Saturday. Thank you my volunteers for helping us with this project.
We’ve been getting in visitors from many of the quilt groups in the area who are checking out the Sieglinde Schoen Smith Collection and then reporting back to their group. Most of the quilts are on display, we’re just waiting on the guys from Lancaster to add another rack or two. We’re also hoping we don’t have to move all the sewing machines to new locations. The machines on wheels are great but it’s just the other half that might need to move. Most of the machines are very heavy and after moving two or three of them, there’s no energy left and the back is complaining. Time to get out the tape measure before moving anything and sitting in a rocker thinking about any movement.
We’ve discovered why our building was so warm. The compressor is bad and the whole unit needs to be replaced. We have someone checking to getting the new unit. Our hopes are that AC units are not on backorder like so many of the things we need daily. Wish us luck.
Don’t forget the Backyard Pickers will be with us Saturday, August 7th.
