I’m sorry if you keep getting blank emails saying Sinnissippi Quilters New Web Posts. We are having technical issues between MailChimp and the website, and the only way I can fix it is to try various things and see if it works when the email goes out.
The issue is with the email that is generated when a new website post is posted. The emails that come directly from MailChimp are working properly. Please remember to check your Spam/Junk boxes every couple of days to make sure you don’t miss anything. Again, I have no control over what your email provider does with incoming mass emails. It is your responsibility to check the Spam box and the website regularly for the latest guild information.
Please bear with me as I try to fix the issue.

Village Quilters of Lake Bluff-Lake Forest will have a Quilt Show, “Quilts from the Village”, on October 1-2, 2021 at the Libertyville Sports Complex located at 1950 US-45, Libertyville, IL 60048. The Raffle Quilt can be seen and tickets can be purchased at https://www.villagequilters.org/show. Silvia ordered tickets and it was easy. We are hoping to use this method for our quilt show, so give it a try!
At our December 2020 Zoom meeting, Carol Swenson told us about a community service opportunity. Lutheran Social Services of Illinois Foster Care Program is accepting small quilts to give to the children who come into their program. They most often come in with nothing. A quilt is something that is all theirs and they get to keep it when they leave. The quilts are simple and small, 24″x24″ or a little larger, and mean so much to them. Lots of ideas were discussed including making a tote bag or a pillowcase with a casing to put a drawstring through for them carry their quilt and any other items in.
If you’d like more information or to donate items, please contact Carol Swenson.
