Greetings and Hello NEORQC Quilters!
We have gotten thru the very rough snowy winter. All kinds snowfall records were broken. Than we had the spring rains come and finally the summer has arrived. YES, it is hot but enjoy because before we know it summer will disappear and fall will be here.
First, I need to apologize to all of you and especially to The Western Reserve Quilters Anonymous Guild, who were super hosts for the March General meeting. The guest speaker, Catherine "Cate" Gynn presented a wonderful display of her quilts. There were a few issues that needed to be taken care of and they took a little more of my time than I thought they would, but everything is settled and I will move on.
The June General Meeting was hosted by Ladies of The Parlour Guild in Mentor, OH. The last two meetings were pot luck lunches and the food was great! There was a request for the recipe "Creamy Red Potato Salad." Checkout our website for the recipe. Marty Anastasio of The Quilted Thimble Shop was the featured speaker. She told us about making a family tree quilt. The Quilted Thimble Shop is a new shop in Chesterland, OH.
The 2015 Getaway is in progress and planned to be at the Clarion Inn & Conference Center in Hudson, OH. MaryAnn Grayson and her committee is already working very hard to make this a great weekend.
We will not be doing a mystery quilt this year . . . instead we will be having a fabric challenge. Paula Wedig is in charge of the challenge and you can purchase the fabric from her.
The By-Laws were presented for approval at the June meeting, however there were a few changes suggested. They will be presented at the October Meeting for approval. Also the Nominating Committee will be calling members to be nominated and introduced at the October meeting and the election will be at the March 2015 General Meeting. Remember this is your organization and your help is needed.
Have a wonderful summer. See you all --in October!
Keep on quilting,
Patricia R. Magiste, President of NEORQC
Recipe: Creamy Red Potato Salad
Attendees at the June NEORQC General Meeting held in Mentor raved about one of the pot luck dishes . . . the Creamy Red Potato Salad! That dish was brought by Vivian Copley and she has shared her recipe for those that would love to try their hand at it.
Incidentally, this is not the first time one of Vivian's recipe's have been requested by popular demand. At the June 2012 meeting, attendees fell in love with her Watermelon Salad recipe.
