35th Anniversary Celebration - May 23, 2018

At its May 2018 meeting, the members of the Guild celebrated its 35th Anniversary. Each member enjoyed  light appetizers and desserts, and each received a free bag of fabric! Raffles were also awarded, which included irons, light boxes, gift certificates from our local quilt shops, notions, patterns batting and more! A citation from the Town of Islip was given to commemorate the event. See below for the article written by Liz Finnegan which appeared in the Islip Bulletin's May 31, 2018 edition.
