June membership meeting at Watkins Glen

On June 17, 100 members of Quilters Consortium of New York State met in Watkins Glen for their quarterly meeting.   The meeting was hosted by O'Susannah's Quilt Shop.  Members were treated to a wonderful lunch, and in a wonderful gesture, Sue Knapp of O'Susannah's gifted the monies received for the lunch to one of her staff to helpful pay for costs incurred for her cancer treatment,   

Arriving at the meeting, we were checked in.

Raffle Quilt by Candlelight Quilt Guild

Another raffle quilt (I missed the guild who made this)

This quilt will be raffled at the next meeting with proceeds going to the scholarship fund.

Sue Knapp tells us of some of the specials in her shop, O'Susannah's. Below, one of her staff does a short demo.

As part of the meeting, 2 discussions were held for those attending.  This session was led by Ann Hawkins, discussing social media and Internet networking!   The other group discussed helpful hints in locating a national teacher and bringing the teacher to your guild for lectures and workshops.

The next meeting will be September 16, hosted by Piecemakers of Moravia.
