Congratulations, Sara Jones – Above and Beyond Award winner


Letter of Nomination

Submitted by Lil Baxter and the Community Service Team

Years ago, milk was delivered to our door step in glass bottles with cardboard caps. In cold weather the milk would freeze. The cream that had risen to the top of the bottle would push the caps out, and rise above the rim to stand like proud white pillars.
Perhaps this is how the expression “cream of the crop” or “the cream rises to the top” came to be applied to those people who stand out from the crowd and rise Above and Beyond.

This year we have such a member…….

The Community Service Committee would like to nominate Sara Jones to receive the Seaside Piecemakers Above and Beyond Award .

Sara’s help  has been immeasurable.  She faithfully attends the monthly Community Service workshops where she pitches in and does whatever needs to be done, particularly measuring and  cutting backing and batting for the donated quilt tops.  Each month she takes home quilts to be quilted on her long arm machine. She then binds the quilts.  If additional fabrics are needed she consults her “stash” finding the perfect piece to use.   In the last two years she has quilted well over one hundred quilts, including many of our donated raffle quilts..

Sara is willing to share her quilting knowledge and is a frequent  participant in demos, classes and workshops, most recently  demonstrating  Prairie points at the  Gathering..

Sara volunteered to design and piece our  beautiful “Opportunity Quilt” for the 2016 quilt show and has volunteered to create another beauty for our next “Gathering”. Her quilting has received numerous awards and recognitions including the prestigious NQA Judge’s Special Award at the 2014 Seaside Quilt Show.

She is an active  member of the Circle of Friends. Although not a member of the board she frequently attends  board meeting and offers information and advice on issues. She rarely misses a general meeting.

We feel her contributions of time and talent, and her dedication to Seaside’s goals “to educate, share, promote and keep alive the craft and traditions of quilting and to use our talents to serve the community”  more than qualify Sara for the Above and Beyond Award.

Sadie’s Dream for a Cure

Sadie's Dream for a Cure tote bags

Sadie’s Dream for a Cure tote bags

Marti Rich showed us bags from Sadie’s Dream for a Cure. The organization provides a pattern and fabric for the first bag and ask that you put their “label” on it. They also send a second label and ask that you construct a second bag using your fabric.

Volunteers then fill the bags with goodies and deliver these to children’s hospitals all over the US.

If you would like to sew tote bags for them, please use the Contact Us button at the Sadie’s Dream for a Cure website.
