Doreen reminded us that the Cold Spring's Quilt show is June 24th and 25th. Registration forms can be found on line or see Clare. Also, Doreen and Clare hope that people will enter the Drunkards Path Challenge. All entries are needed by June 20th.

Our bus trip to Lancaster is September 30th. The sign up sheet was passed around again. The $39 cost is due at our June meeting.

I posted the new membership directory on-line and mailed copies to those who do not have computer access. There are three corrections. Joan K should be Joann, Diane DN should be Diana and Diane M new cell number is . ( If there are any other corrections, please let me know.)

A requested Saturday "open sew" was held and although quite a few signed up, only eight members showed up. Bernie did a lot of work to get and set up the Hall. If you sign up for something, please try to attend.

There was a good turnout at our regular "sew "at the Millman Center and will be continued the third and fourth Wednesdays through October.


The Pillow Case Challenge is September 17th and again, will be held at the Hammonton Fire Hall. Bernie challenged us all to help beat the competition. Everyone who attended last year had a great time. We have to defend our victory for making the most cases that day.

Helen E has a friend who's son is in the service and she and a few friends are collecting needed items to send overseas. Helen will post them on the Blog and if interested, please bring them to the June meeting.

Doreen and Sharon C announced that a member of South Shore Stitchers passed away and there will be a sale Saturday of material and other quilting items. It will be held on Route 9 in Seaville.

The meeting was adjourned.

There was an abbreviated Show & Tell, followed by our speaker, Jane Hamilton. Jane's trunk show contained antique, classic and modern quilts. She entertained us with her quilting background and enlightened us on different types of quilting, color values and how they affect outcomes. She also shared some tricks and tips. She will hold a workshop tomorrow at the Millman Center.

Refreshments were enjoyed by all.
Our next meeting is June 14th.

Respectfully Submitted,
Beverly Tyler, Secretary
