LARNED — Colleen Wolf opened the July 21 meeting of the Larned Quilting Bees guild with a note from Janis Lewis of Poulsbow, Wash., thanking all of the members for teaching her how to quilt. Lewis has made a quilt for a fundraiser for Dr. Okey’s orphanage in Nigeria. Wolf read “The Last Will and Testament,” for quilters.
It was the consensus of the guild that we would display quilts at the Tired Iron Show in October. Several members will enter the Pawnee County Fair and a special display will feature some of the many projects that the guild accomplishes throughout the year. Those helping with the quilting section will be Colleen Wolf, Virginia Bauer, Karen Hadley and Gayle Fanshier. Many thanks to Richard Wolf for setting up the tables.
The new treasurer for the guild will be Virginia Bauer and thanks goes out to Diann Morell for the many years of serving in this position.
Ann Hicks distributed additional items for the small cat wall hanging.
Diane Schultz distributed the September pattern for the yearly project most of the guild is participating in.
Again this year Pat Knoechel will be presenting new quilt patterns at the Presbyterian Church in Great Bend on Sept. 17. The guild will purchase two books at this popular meeting.
Show and Tell participants were Opal Macy, quilt in progress; Karen Hadley, library project of pumpkin wall hanging; Becky Obermiller, March quilt square; Sue Southam, old quilt; Colleen Wolf, Halloween wall hanging with embroidered pumpkins. The next regular meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4 at the Larned Presbyterian Church. The public is invited.
