Help needed!

Hello Ladies of LQG,

I’m writing you today to ask for a favor. Would you be willing to help the ladies of the Santa Rosa California Quilt Guild whose members lost so much in the fires.  Is it possible you have one fat quarter that you would like to donate to someone in Santa Rosa? At the upcoming November 13th meeting I will be collecting fat quarters. The Panama Guild is also doing a drive and will be sending all the fat quarters collected to Santa Rosa.

There is another way to help out.  We will be sending around a basket at the meeting for monetary donations...just a dollar from each of us can help rebuild their library of books and patterns. We all know how important our library is to us.  You can also do this with your small groups.

If you wish to send something, their address is:  
Santa Rosa Quilt Guild
P.O. Box 9251
Santa Rosa, Ca. 95405

The thought of losing everything is nothing any of us want to think about. This is a gesture of friendship to someone who needs to know that others are thinking of them.
Thank you so much for your help. It is the season of giving, faith and love.

Pam Rowland

New Membership Drive

The Lincoln Quilters Guild will hold a New Membership Drive through the end of November.  Many of us may have friends that may have thought of joining and just didn’t get around to it.  If a member who invites a potential member to an upcoming meeting and they join, the LQG member will be awarded a fat quarter.  Dues for the remainder of the 2017 year for the new member will be prorated.   LQG is excited to welcome new members into the guild.
