Genesee   Valley   Quilt   Club   (GVQC)   offers   quilters   a   place   to learn, grow, and serve through their love of quilting. Monthly meetings offer: Activities:    block    of    the    month,    fat    quarter    drawing, Comfort Quilt, opportunity to sign up for workshops. A large lending library.  Show and Tell Program,   usually   with   a   special   speaker   who   shares quilting    wisdom,    tips,    a    trunk    show,    and/or    quilting inspiration.  Sometimes after meeting mini-workshops. The     club,     located     in     Rochester,     NY,     meets     monthly September    through    June    and    draws    members    from    the Finger   Lakes   region   and   even   as   far   away   as   Buffalo,   NY.      The membership   represents   a   wide   range   of   quilting   skills   from beginner    to    advanced,    all    types    of    quilting    and    interests, including   traditional,   contemporary,   modern   and   art,   both hand    and    machine    quilting.        Because    of    the    diversity    of quilting   interests,   Show   and   Tell   and   the   parade   of   Comfort Quilts   (turned   in   for   donation)   are   always   a   delight   and   an inspiration.         Although   a   few   of   the   members   have   been recognized     in     prestigious     juried     national     quilt     shows, members enjoy learning and sharing their love of quilting together. GVQC   offers   an   opportunity   to   connect   with   member   quilters   through   an   active   (member   only)   Yahoo Group   and   to   keep   up   with   club   news   through   the   monthly   publication,   Patchword   newsletter.      GVQC has   a   long   tradition   of   serving   the   community,   including   making   and   donating   hundreds   of   quilts   a year through Love and Comfort Quilts  to area organizations to give to individuals and families in need. New   members   are   always   welcome.      If   you   are   not   sure   you   want   to   join,   come   for   a   visit.      We   would love to meet you.  More  about our meetings.

June Program Highlights At   the   June   meeting   the   officers   for   next year    were    installed.        Per    tradition,    a member    of    the    club    that    meets    the requirements    is    selected    by    the    GVQC Board    as    an    Honorary    Member.        This year’s   selection   was   Marie   McDermott.     Marie       has       volunteered       in       many capacities   in   the   club   over   the   years   and has      volunteered      with      several      quilt shows,   including   chairing   a   committee.      She   was   presented   with   a   lovely hanging basket. Comfort   Quilts   revealed   the   total   numbers   of   quilts   donated   this   past club   year   -   over   360   with   a   value   of   over   $31,100!      The   three   members that    had    made/donated    the    most    quilts    were    honored.        Because    of everyone’s    combined    effort,    many    throughout    the    community    were blessed to receive a comfort quilt. As       in       the       past,       those       that volunteered    during    the    year    on    a committee,     filled     an     office,     are planning    the    2019    quilt    show,    or volunteered    for    one    of    the    many positions   that   allow   the   club   to   do so    much,    were    presented    with    a small   token   of   appreciation   from   the club.        This    year,    each    received    a beautiful rose bud. The   June   meeting   was   our   annual   “picnic”   and “garage”   sale.      Since   we   meet   inside,   we   never have   to   worry   about   the   bugs   or   the   rain.      With the   indoor   garage   sale   we   also   never   have   to worry   about   the   weather   or   whether   we   need to    park    down    the    street.        Tables    are    set    up around    the    perimeter    of    the    meeting    room where   members   sell   many   goodies   that   include fabric,    sewing    stuff,    sewing    machine,    more fabric,    patterns,    books,    quilting    stuff,    more fabric, and . . . . The   morning   was   capped   off   by   a   wonderful   “picnic”   lunch   with   well supplied tables of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Club   does   not   meet   during   July   and   August.      Meetings   will   resume   on September 27, 2018.  Join us!  We look forward to seeing you.
