County Fair Update for MLQG Members

Many MLQG members enter their quilts in the annual Tioga County PA Fair, but unfortunately, the fair has been scaled down for 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions and will only be hosting animal shows and a livestock sale.

Save those quilts for next year! And keep working on more!

Update From MLQG President Sylvia L.

I am a homebody, my husband is a social butterfly but I am missing my entire quilting family. BIG TIME!!

They say the absence makes the heart grow fonder and my heart has grown fonder of many different people and things that I have been missing.  I am excited to get back to the business of the Guild and the friendship and camaraderie that I have been missing.

Perhaps this month we will be having a meeting, but as of 6/3 there has been no decision.  I am still confused about the actual parameters around meetings and the Gmeiner has not received their guidelines, so for now they are still closed.

We will continue to prepare for the next time we are together, until then be safe and God Bless. Sylvia

MLQG Outreach Update

COVID-19 Face Masks - Give yourselves a great big pat on the back if you made one or more face masks during this pandemic!  You all did an amazing job making sure that everyone who needed a mask, had a mask!  Thankfully, it seems as though the need is subsiding and I'm sure I'm not the only one who won't be disappointed if I never have to make another face mask again!

Bumble Bags - I have been in contact with Michele Griffin of the Humble Bumble Project and she tells me that COVID-19 still has the Bumble Bag project on hold. Once the hospitals and Hope Lodge locations are allowed to open back up 100% the project will continue.

Asa's Place - I have also been in contact with Robin Adams of Asa's Place.  She tells me she doesn't foresee needing to make any changes in how we handle quilt donations due to COVID-19.  Robin reported they still have a good supply of quilts. 

MLQG's Quilt Closet - In the guild's quilt closet I have a good supply of children's quilts ready for donation to any child in need of a quilt.  If you know of a need please contact me!  I recently gave our last adult quilt to a hospice patient so we could really use a few adult-themed throw sized quilts to have on hand.

Stone Soup Quilt Kits - If you would like a Stone Soup Quilt Kit please contact me and I will see that you get one!

Thanks to all of you who support the guild's outreach projects!  You all truly make a difference in our community with every stitch!
