The guild does not meet in July.


Service Projects has resumed on a reduced scale. 

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 months since we’ve been able to meet! We trust that you all have stayed healthy and busy during these difficult months. We know that most, if not all of you, have been hard at work making masks, scrub caps, quilt tops, preemie quilts and pillowcases, as well as projects for yourself. Several people have asked if they can come to the church to pick up supplies for their Service Projects “projects”. We are happy to announce that we have been in touch with Pastor Ken, who says that the church plans to begin in person services in September but they are allowing community groups to use the building and grounds starting in July.

 

They have developed guidelines for the safe use of the facilities. At this point, these include: a limit on the number of people who can be in the room; mandatory mask wearing and social distancing (8 feet); temperature checks at the door; attendance-taking (in case of the need to do contact tracing); willingness to clean/disinfect surfaces before and after building use; and willingness for individuals to stay home if you have symptoms.

 

While we are considering when to begin workshops again and what they will look like, we want to respond to those who would like to pick up supplies and/or drop off finished projects. We have developed some procedures to keep everyone safe. Here is the plan.

 

    • We have scheduled 4 Thursdays, 2 in July (July 16 and 30) and 2 in August (August 13 and 27). Sessions will run from 9:30 – 11:30 am. Members can use SignUp Genius to sign up for a 20 minute slot during those hours. There will be a limit of 3 sign-ups per 20 minute slot. We are extremely limited in the number of people who can be in the Fellowship Hall at the same time. We cannot allow anyone who is not signed up to come into the church. Here is the link Sign Up!  
  • We will disinfect surfaces before the sessions start as well as after each 20 minute slot.
  • Those who come must wear a mask and agree to stay 6-8 feet apart. We will take attendance as you come in and will take your temperature. Hand sanitizer will be available.
  • Kits for quilt tops, preemie quilts and pillowcases will be sealed in baggies and will be displayed on tables near the front entrance to the Fellowship Hall. You can choose what you want and we will record what you take (this will help with our inventory process).
  • If you need fabric for borders, backing or binding, please bring the top/s you are matching (or the fabric/squares you are using) in a sealed zip lock baggie (or individual baggies if you have more than one project). A member of our team in Fellowship Hall will take your baggie/s to the back room, where someone will choose the fabrics you ask for. They will put your baggie/s and fabric in a plastic bag and then bring the bag back to you. In order to protect you, as well as the “workers” who will be there all morning, we cannot allow anyone else to go into the back room.
  • If you are signed up and want to drop off finished projects, please bring them in a plastic bag and leave it in a designated place in Fellowship Hall. We won’t return your bag to you since we will be disinfecting and “quarantining” the bags in the back room. Again, we want to keep everyone safe.
  • We won’t be cutting batting at this time.
  • We will ask that everyone leave the Fellowship Hall promptly when their allowed time is up so that we have time to disinfect before the next group arrives.
  • We ask that members sign up for no more than one time per month so that everyone who wants to come is able to come.
  • Bathrooms will not be open.

 

We are being very careful about precautions to protect you, the church and the guild. We may be doing even more than is absolutely necessary but we want everyone to feel comfortable and safe.

 

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Nance and Anne
