"The Quilt Lovin’ Gals" (to the tune of The Squid Jiggin’ Grounds)
[With apologies to Arthur Scammell] by Winnie Hoyt
Oh this is the town where the guild members gather
With notions, creations and patterns galore
All sizes and figures with needles and scissors
We congregate here with the Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
- This fabulous group started out in the ‘90’s
Michele first phoned Anna who then called Val.
The number was sixteen who gathered in April;
Now we’re official – we’re Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
- There’s over a hundred members and counting
With thoughts and ideas on various things
Such as workshops, programs, shows and great dinners
We love all we do with the Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
- There’s girls from the country and girls from the city
There’s some from the valley and other spots too.
There’s oldies, spot quilters, guests and beginners
They all are made welcome by the Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
- Holy smokes what a shuffle, all hands are excited,
It’s Cuddle Quilt Day right here in the Bay
There’s a bustle, a stitching, a wonderful hustle
They’re all stabbin’ quilts with the Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
- If YOU ever feel inclined to go quilting
Just leave all your troubles and sorrows behind
Cause you’ll never feel better than when you are sewing
And quilting a block with the Quilt Lovin’ Gals.
