    “Everything Old Is New Again”

    The thirty-three entries in the 2017 Surfside Challenge will really wow you!

    There is everything from a sofa to a floor rug, along with pillows, a dog bed,

    and a vest! We also have, of course, an amazing group of wonderfully crea-

    tive quilts for you all to enjoy.

    The challenge kit included a vintage grandmother’s flower garden block from a

    donation to the guild of 45 blocks. The other 15 were made by Candy Martin

    and Jan Hirth. The block was not required to be in the quilt but you will be

    amazed at how creative quilters were in using them.

    Hoffman Fabrics representative Michelle Flores will give a presentation on

    their newest fabrics as well as their 2017 Challenge. She will be showing

    some of the challenges entered this year. Jean Impey, a SQG member, is in

    charge of their challenge.

    WHAT TO WEAR: In keeping with the theme of the challenge, Everything Old is New Again, it will be fun to wear vintage (or just old) clothes, and/or a

    hat (old or new). If you don’t have a vintage outfit or a hat, wear the colors of

    the challenge: green, bright pink or gray. Whatever your attire, just come and

    enjoy the beautiful quilts and visiting with your quilting friends.

    PRESIDENT’S CORNER Linda Rigdon 949-588-1640

    The table decoration in July was won by Maggie Bell.

    July 11, 2017 Members attending - 119 , New Members - 0, Guests - 4 Total Attendance - 123 Total Membership - 198

    It’s August and time for our biennial Member’s Challenge presentation and results! Leslye Stringfellow and Jan Hirth have outdone themselves, and I know we will have so many surprises to see at our meeting! Who will win the prizes? Who will be the overall Challenge winner??? Maybe it will be YOU!! The 2017-2018 Directory is being readied for printing and may actually be ready for the August meeting! I hope you are enjoying the occasional email “Extra!’s”! I have enjoyed your

    responses, and I have learned a lot about your passions for our Guild. Thank you for every com- ment (both the good and the not-so-good). Please know that all of your names are kept confidential by me. This month I emailed you an informal survey requesting your personal opinion of an online directory either concurrent with (or in place of) the printed membership directory and I received replies from over 25% of you within the week. I was thrilled that so many of you took the time. The poll results? I stopped counting the night before our last SQG Board Meeting so I could present your opinions to the Board. The final count was ONE more vote for online than for printed. I think we all agree that one informal vote doesn’t make or break decisions; but it does say something about our lives and times. I will be arranging a meeting with those of you who offered to be on an exploratory team for imple- menting a safe, password protected, printable, online listing - with photos. If you want to be in- volved, but haven’t told me yet, please contact me directly. Don’t forget to take some time for enjoying our hobby - quilting! See you at the General Meeting! Choose to be happy…

    If you have an August birthday bring a treat, either sweet or savory, to share with your fellow members. If you don’t have an August birthday bring something anyway! Put your name in the basket for a drawing for the table flowers.

    We had a fun day creating Halibut with Cindy Cooksey in our July workshop. Instead of a workshop on August 9th we will be having a Sew-Cial at the San Juan Capistrano Mobile Estates. Nancy Ota will give us a demonstration on appliqué - in particular how she does the lettering on our president's quilts. Please bring in your current machine or hand sewing pro- ject, the $10 fee, and lunch for a fun and informal day of sewing and socializing. This is a great way to get to know some of the wonderful quilters in our guild better. Monica Shafer will be bringing in more great patterns and fabrics for those who would like to make some- thing for our Surfside November Fest Boutique. On September 13th Sandy Corbin will be doing her workshop "My Basket Collection". You can either make this beautiful quilt with all 16 baskets or the 1/4 quilt with 4 baskets. We will give you the supply list for either option. Her pattern for this quilt of baskets will be available for purchase at $11.

    The November Fest committee is working hard to get everything ready for our Fest. We are continuing to collect

    some lovely quilts for the auction. We have a beautiful 3-D flower quilt, a music theme quilt and a flower appliqué

    quilt as examples of just a few of the quilts that have been turned in. Please, if you have a quilt you need a

    home for, donate it to the Fest. We also like to auction off other treasures like purses or bags, pillows, etc.

    Cathie Opila is collecting items for the auction.

    Our baskets for the raffle are coming together. Some baskets that are in the making include Top Chef and Baby

    Love. If you need an empty basket please see Susie Russell and Joann Bishop at the Fest table. They have

    a list of cute basket ideas to work from.

    We are also starting a list for helpers to work the various areas come Fest day on November 14th. The lists are

    on the Fest table. Some of the jobs we will need help with are set-up, clean-up, runners, tickets sales, etc.

    Please sign up for something as it takes us all to make a Fest succeed.

    Monica Shafer is doing a fantastic job of coordinating the boutique. Anyone interested in giving us something to

    sell in our boutique see Monica. She has already accumulated some wonderful items and is working on getting

    more. Our boutique is going to be great this
