Flagg (640x640)First of all, I salute all of you ladies and your many talents as I recently found out that I can’t even use a lawn mower or bush cutters without being wounded so with that being said let’s get going on needed information.

This year’s conference is scheduled for August 26th, starting time is by 10:00 A.M.If at all possible this year I would like everyone to get their entries to State headquarters a week before the conference so there will be more time to check the items in, for those that have issues with items sitting at state that long, you can be assured they will be locked in the office or if necessary I will keep them at my home.

Baking and Dress-A-Doll will be due by 9:00 A.M. on the day of the conference.We will not be having a paid lunch as we will be taking a short break but we should still finish up by 1:00 P.M. (something new to try).

I would appreciate it if you would put a note on your report sheets as to whether or not you use the Grange iron on labels when you donate quilts, pillowcases, etc.

A thank you goes out to Cynthia Maxwell as there are errors on the annual report sheet: Class O – should be Decorated Item, Class P – should be the Decorated Wooden Chest and Class Q – Should be Juniors. Baby Quilts are listed in the quilt categories and they are added in with the method of how they were put together. I hope that will clear up some of the confusion. As always check with Headquarters to make sure someone will be there when you want to drop off items.

As you all know, please call if you have any questions (524-2011) and on that note, I am going to try and put up a blind using a step stool and a drill. Look forward to seeing many of you next month.

Recently, Cynthia Maxwell of Excelsior Grange hosted a pillow case workshop and she showed several ladies on how to do the “hotdog method” and they were all fascinated on how little time it took but they also learned how to do French Seaming for a very nice finish. Ladies in the picture are Cynthia Maxwell, Barbara Strout, Catherine Farrell, Carolyn Bennet, Louise Roberts. Picture by Patricia Hall. Good job, ladies.
