May meeting recap

Hello everyone! This month's meeting was held May 8 at Pennington Quilt Works.

Jamee let us know that entries for the Keystone Quilters show in October are open to the public. You can submit quilts using the form found at this link.

Handmade Hopewell, which was mentioned in last month's post, has been rescheduled to Sunday, June 2, 10am-4pm, on Seminary Ave in Hopewell. You'll find some of our members among the vendors!

Signups for the fall retreat are open to members! It's November 1-3, at Hyatt House Branchburg. Please see more details on Groupworks; send checks to Christine to reserve a spot.

We'll have a workshop this summer on the Retreat Bag, led by Janet, who showed some samples to introduce the class.

For June's meeting, we've challenged members to make a modern spring-themed pillow. Janneke described and demonstrated a few different methods of creating pillow covers. Jamee added a few instructional links to Groupworks if you need help!
