If you are an IHQ member, you already got an email about the IH Flea Market needing help – to get set up and work at the Flea Market Sat & Sun. OK, sure we always ask for extra help – BUT we don’t need “extra” help, WE NEED HELP – PERIOD! Many of our regular helpers have been set back by health issues, they had the gall to move away, or whatever – they are not working this year.
There are 2 years worth of wonderful treasures to sort and price and sell. This is the Ebbett’s Pass Community Center (a.k.a. The Hall) primary fundraiser that did not raise funds last year due to you-know-what. PLEASE help us have a successful Flea Market this year, and volunteer to help out, or spend the weekend buying treasures and tickets to win a gorgeous quilt.
We need your help, come on Monday, August 2 through Thursday, August 5 from8:30-2PM. Next week is the last week we have to get ready. We also need a lot of help during the event:
Saturday, Aug 7, 2021, 8AM-4PM Sunday August 8, 2021, 9AM-3PM
For more information, please call: Board Member Margaret Zavertnik @795-7668, or 770-7668
Quilters Summer Break: June 15th – August 22nd.This Monday,June 14th will be out last “drop-off” for the summer. There will also be a General meeting. Plan to bring your lunch and money to buy raffle tickets! And don’t forget your mask!
Flea Market preparation: Kick-off meeting on June 15, then workdays Tuesday’s and Thursday’s throughout July.
The Big Flea Market: August 7th-8th
Seasons in the Woods is scheduled earlier than usual, and will be held the weekend of September 25 & 26
We lucked out with dry and warmer weather. Less of a turn out, but even quilter’s have other things they gotta do. We are getting a new member soon – she saw the post for Drop-off day and joined us for lunch. Her name is Eileen.
Many of our usual suspects were out of town, so Eileen was not overwhelmed by hoards of us. Hoards of quilters? Is that like a murder of crows, or a herd of cows? Maybe we should have a contest?

Our next, and last drop-off day this summer, will be June 14th. @ 11 :00 am. Bring your chair, favorite lunch, and a mask in case you need to go into the Hall
Tomorrow, Monday May 24th, at 11:30 am, members of IHQ will gather at our Hall to turn in Boutique items, comfort quilts, pillow cases, raffle tickets, and the like. There will be a designated “free table” as well.
Bring your lunch and a chair to enjoy visting in the parking lot. We make a socially distant circle and eat together, as close as we can come to a luncheon these days. I will try to take some photos this time and if any turn out right you will see them here – someday. Yours truly has a very busy week ahead, so no ETA is established.
I hope to see a whole bunch of members tomorrow! Please remember to bring your mask, a folding chair & lunch.
