Past Presidents' Forum
Past Presidents' Forum

The Past Presidents' Forum will meet twice a year to help direct the
community service projects of the guild.  This committee will work
independently of the board and report annually to the guild.  All guild
members that have served a term as president are welcome.  

Next meeting: 7pm on the first Monday of June at the Millennium Diner
in Smithtown

At the "freebie" section of the stage at guild meetings, an optional
donation jar has been added.  The money collected in this jar will go to
KIVA, an organizaiton that makes micro-loans around the world.  The
forum will direct the donated funds toward projects that help women or
further texile/sewing business.  Small loans (starting as little as $25)
when repaid will go into the guild's KIVA account and can then be
reloaned to another woman sewer!

2019 Annual Report of Community Service Projects:
Kiva: The woman who received the loan in 2018 has repaid that loan in
full.  Two loans of $100 each were made in 2019         
Comfort Quilts: Members made a total of 255 quilts and an unknown
number of quilts donated to camp for children suffering from cancer
Post Cards: Members sold postcards and received donations for
