High Plains Heritage Quilters
High Plains Heritage Quilters’ Feb. 4 meeting was called to order by Chairwoman Pat Hadeen at Haxtun Community Center. There were 17 members present. Hostesses were Bonnie McFadden, Ronda Fetzer and Lily Salyards.
Anyone still wanting a secret sister may contact Kay Hansbury. Members were also reminded the ABC Quilt Challenge is still open, and they are to bring fat quarters for any UFOs. A sign-up sheet was passed around to do a block for the American Barns.
A fat quarter was given to birthday gals Barb Meakins and Diana Green.
The 2012 committee reported on the quilt show on Sept. 20, and tickets are now available for the quilt raffle. Members passed to have a judge at the show this year and will reserve the cottage in Haxtun now. Cost of milage and what the judge needs to be paid was discussed.
Jeananne Wright will be at the April 7 meeting to give a lecture on “Uncommon Quilts from Common Threads” and will do quilt appraisals. If members or anyone they know want their quilts appraised, let Hadeen know. Members will have a pot luck for lunch.
The quilters will do a laptop for Chad and Rena Tuell as their house burned. They will do laptops for charity and Joan, Pat and Lynette, and they will tie the lap quilts at the meetings. They will do food donations on the months there are holidays. The sewing for the young people will not be until September 2012.
Those doing the Uncle Sam quilt for secret sister met shortly after the meeting.
Paula Strode with the Methodist Food Basket at Holyoke let members know how it is handled.
