August 6th Meetings

We will be kicking off our 2020-21 year with “Meet Your New Board Members” at the August 6th meetings (1:00 and 6:30). The meetings will be held outside at Bethesda Covenant Church with a limit of 50 members. We will attempt to Facebook LIVE the meetings. See below for details.

Please bring a lawn chair and your mask. Treats WILL NOT be shared at this meeting, but if you want to bring a drink or something to snack on, please feel free to do so. 

Our new President, Bonnie Hodina, will try to record both meetings LIVE via the Sinnissippi Quilters Facebook Page. You do not need to have a Facebook account to watch it.

If you DO NOT have a Facebook account, at 1:00 and/or 6:30, go to and ignore or chose no for create an account. Scroll down until you see what looks like a picture of the meeting and click on the picture to start the video feed.

If you do have a Facebook account, be sure you have already Liked our page. Go to the page and click on the picture to play.

All of this is experimental and may or may not work. Bonnie would love your feedback after the meetings.

July 2nd Meetings

Our July 2nd meeting will take place on the grounds of Bethesda Church at 1:00 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. We ask that you attend the meeting that you signed up for. Please bring a lawn chair. We also ask you to bring a mask. Treats WILL NOT be shared at this meeting, but if you want to bring a drink or something to snack on, please feel free to do so. We will try to make this as comfortable as possible. I know that all of you have been very prolific during this stay-at-home/ quarantine time; however, due to the expected hot weather I would like to limit the Sew and Tell to two items per person. Look forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Support Local Quilt Shops

Please support our local and area quilt shops during this stay-at-home time. They are offering online shopping, phone orders, and curbside pickup. Check their websites or call. If no answer, leave a message because they may not be in the store during their “normal” hours but are checking messages. We certainly want them to all be here when we are able to go out and shop again.

Also support our guild members who are long arm quilters or have other quilting businesses. Member, Lori Dickman, is offering a Spring Mystery Quilt on her website. Click HERE for step 1, HERE for step 2, HERE for step 3.
