President’s Message June, 2024

President’s Message


The Sunflower is a symbol of enlightenment and personal growth.  So, June’s sunflower mantra is FOLLOW GOOD ENERGY TO FIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!!!

It is my hope that you find a positive energy in our meetings/endeavors; and find joy in your quilting creations.  Strive to try a new technique this month!

  • Please make a red/white and blue block for veterans and bring to the meeting. You can check out facebook for a pattern that I posted or make your own 9 ½ or 12 and ½ block.
  • Don’t forget that Judith Lily will be here on Friday and Saturday to teach a workshop on landscape quilting and a fabulous trunk show. If interested in the class, contact Diane Mercer.  It should be FUN and a new technique!
  • We are very happy to announce that March 20-21, 2026 is the date for the Celebration of Quilts Cobblestone Quilt Show. It will be held at Trident Technical College in North Charleston in their conference center.  Diane Mercer and I are the co-chairs for the event.  We are very excited and, hope you are excited as well!  Keep alert for updates each month about vendors, quilts, and new additions to the Show. 
  • OPEN SEW is available in the afternoons on Guild Meeting Saturdays after lunch. I am so happy to see more and more people bringing their machines

to stitch way with other members in one of the classrooms.

  • Sunflower Guild challenge ends in November…you still have time for your creations in any medium you chose to use!
  • Keep on making those wonderful mastectomy pillows and other charity projects. I believe that Cobblestone members are the most generous people I know.


June is National SMILE MONTH…so smile, laugh and celebrate Father’s Day and Juneteenth Day.     Barb
