Annual Ice Cream Social, Aug. 13, 2018
Hospitality Co-Chair Debbie Conrad demonstrates how to make the most of the South Shore Stitchers Annual Ice Cream Social and all the toppings - while her helper Co-Chair, Ronnie Sauerbrey is busy scooping up the dishes of ice cream. 

All the Guild members enjoyed full dishes of ice cream with a variety of toppings and goodies.

It takes lots of helpers to feed some hungry Guild members!  Front to back - Sue Hanlin, Diana Easterday, and Elsie Carey.


At the Guild meeting Monday night, August 13,  members showed the Raffle Quilt they made for the Holiday Fair at the Church of Saint Katharine Drexel in EHT - October 12-13, 2018. Tickets for the quilt  titled - "Diamonds in Batiks"  are $1 or 6 for $5. SSS Guild member Linda Dowd will have them for sale at future guild meetings. (Queen size quilt.) >

Challenge Winners
Winners of South Shore Stitchers Guild ‘Paint Chip Challenge’ were chosen at the July 2018 Guild meeting
by the members. Left to right – 1st Place Jane Pszczolkowski, 2nd Place Elizabeth Ohlson, 3rd Place Debbie Lombardozzi, and
3rd Place (tie) Shirley Allen. For the Challenge, members picked a paint chip from a paper bag. The Challenge was to use those colors in a small quilt. The paint chip was to be displayed with the finished quilt. A total of 26 Guild members participated in this year’s Challenge. All the quilts will be displayed in the Guild Quilt Show in October 2019. (Click on above photo to view larger version.)

Round Robin’ Quilt Project
At the July Guild meeting members signed up to participate in a ‘Round Robin’ Quilt Project that will be completed in 2019 and will be displayed in the October 2019 Guild Quilt Show. The above photos were examples shown by the committee chairs of past projects. Round Robin participants will be divided into groups. Each member makes a center 12 ½” block. The block is then passed to the next member who makes four 4 ½” blocks. Then the next month the project is passed to another member of the group until the quilt is ready to pass back to the original member who then assembles the quilt – and keeps it.
