Happy Summer. The weather is beautiful this week. I hope you are well and happy. It is looking
like things are opening up. I am looking forward to seeing you all in person.
June will be the last clue for the mystery quilt, and by the next month some of us will have
finished quilts. I am also working on the row quilt from Bear Paw. Remember we also need to
think what we will make for the “Positivity Challenge“ that our 2nd Vice Presidents have
presented us. Think of some positives from 2020 and make a block up to 16 inches.
When life gives you scraps, make quilts. 

In the meantime, I am hosting an early afternoon "Sew and Chat" on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. on Zoom.  Please call or email me if you would like to join us.  We have been working together on the Mystery Quilt and the Confetti Star blocks, as well as other projects.  It is yet another way to stay in touch while we quilt.

Thank you all, Penni Simily

THANKS FROM EMCSPCA Thank you to the SMQA for the lovely quilt you donated for our Eastern Madera County SPCA raffle. I had the pleasure to call one of our own, Betsy Anne Youngholm, with the news that she had won the quilt and she was extremely excited. We are so pleased that a member of our SPCA and, of course, a member of the quilt guild, was the winner. Our total income from the quilt raffle was $2,681. Thank you to the two artists and to the quilt guild for this wonderful donation.

Sincerely, Nancy L. Swanson EMCSPCA and SMQA
