On August 10, 2021, after over a year, BVQ met in person outside at The Thomas Bruder Life Center at Neumann University in Aston, PA. It was so nice to see such a good turnout! Looking forward to meeting in person in the months ahead.
The votes are in! See the winners and the other entries.
Time for our annual ice cream social, our annual challenge, and our first “in-person” meeting since March of 2020. I love ice cream, I love challenges, and I love being with you guys, so I am super excited. It looks like the weather will cooperate. too. Don’t forget to bring your chair, water bottle, your challenge quilt, and any show and share to the meeting too. And wear your name tag!!
We will be starting our raffles – 50/50, In it to WIN it (formally Not so Blind), and a new fabric raffle – so come prepared to buy some tickets.
The board met and approved committee chairs and the budget for the upcoming year. The list of new committees and their chairs/coordinators is in the newsletter and will be available on the website. There are a few open positions. If any of these interest you, please let me know. We also discussed some ideas for the year – so stay tuned! We would also love to hear any ideas you have.
Check out the retreat information, upcoming speakers, and more in the August newsletter.
We hope to have information about the status of starting meeting at Neumann shortly, but it seems to be a moving target. We will let you know as soon as we know. Hope to see each of you soon whether in person or on zoom. Our August meeting will start at 6:00pm. We will be in the vicinity of where we had our Sunday drop offs and pick ups outside the Bruder Life Center. Stay cool and keep quilting!

Hi I'm Deb, BVQ webmaster and official blog runner! I am a retired Medical Technologist, having worked the night shift at Chester County Hospital for 30 years. I think I have sewed forever – my mom sewed, my grandmother sewed, and in 1984 I decided to make a "blanket" for my about-to-be baby....it was 3 layers sewn together with a binding! Little did I know it was a quilt! I am basically self-taught, but continue to learn as I hang out with BVQ. My basement work area is seriously quilt cluttered and my better half asks no questions! I have too many UFO’s and want-to-do’s than I can count, but I guess that makes me a true quilter!
