                                               Image result for dee dadik 
We are starting in September with amazing quilt appraiser Dee Dadik. She will share her expertise and provide insight about the value of the quilts we create. Our labors of love contain a lot more than fabric and thread! In addition, she will be available for one-on-one appraisal appointments. These will be scheduled on a first come basis. You may have one or three quilts appraised. Appraisals will be scheduled before the meeting on Thursday, beginning at 3:20pm. Openings are still available, if you are interested contact Barbara Pepper at There is a possibility of Friday morning slots, if demand is there. A verbal appraisal will be $30. If you’d like a written appraisal it will be $50. Fees will be payable directly to Dee at the time of your appointment.

                           NEW FALL 2020 RETREAT

As suggested, we are taking reservations prior to, rather than at the 2019 retreat in order to allow all current members an equal opportunity to register. We will still maintain the ability for people to choose their roommates; EACH person needs to submit their form with their desired roommates listed on the form. Forms need to be mailed to me, with NO money or check, before September 1, 2019. Beginning on the Tuesday after Labor Day, when I return from my weekend in Buffalo, I will draw envelopes randomly to populate the attendee list for 2020. Any one person’s form that has roommates listed on it, will secure the reservation for themselves and the listed roommates, provided I have received a form from each of them also. I will continue in this manner until I have filled the 21 to 24 slots. We have ALL of the bedrooms in the main building available to us next year, however total number of attendees is limited by the amount of space in the workshop rooms. We will be accepting no more than 24 attendees. Any remaining names will be placed on a waiting list, in first drawn, first listed order. 

I will be calling you to let you know your status, after I have opened and processed all envelopes. Deposits of $25/person for every confirmed attendee MUST be received at (or before) the September 12, 2019 GLHQ guild meeting. Checks need to be written to GLHQ.

The retreat/waiting list will be held open to only current GLHQ guild members until 9/30/19; friends and family can reserve or be placed on the waiting list beginning 10/1/19. 

If you have any questions, please call Cheryl Murphy. 248–345–0143
