Mark your calendars for Girl Scouting celebration on the Martha Stewart Show!

The Martha Stewart Show is featuring Girl Scouts in an episode that will air at 10 a.m. on May 7 on the Hallmark Channel. The entire show is devoted to Girl Scouting and a celebration of our 100 years.

The show, which was taped on March 21, begins with a conversation about Girl Scouting between GSUSA CEO Anna Maria Chávez and Martha Stewart, who was a Girl Scout while growing up in New Jersey. The program also features Girl Scouts engaging with Martha Stewart in various cooking and craft segments, and there’s even a segment on Girl Scout uniforms through the decades.

The show will air again on May 7 at 2 p.m. and on May 8 at 1 p.m., and you’ll be able to watch clips from the show at www.marthastewart.com beginning on May 8.

We hope you’ll tune in for a wonderful celebration of Girl Scouting.

100th Anniversary Quilt Project

Does your troop want to be part of a memorable quilt for the 100th Anniversary?  If so, gather your Girl Scout friends and talk with your troop leader about making a quilt square that you can send to the council office.  It will become one of many used to create a large quilt that will be displayed throughout the 100th Anniversary year!  All you have to do is get one quilt block for the entire troop (individual Girl Scouts may submit one separately) and together decide how you would like to represent yourselves on the square.  Think about what Girl Scouting means to you and your troop, or maybe represent something special your troop has done or even a goal your troop has within the next few years.  Whatever you choose…have fun!

Details include: 9 ½” X 9 ½” quilt block, ¼” border on all sides for seams, high quality cotton fabric, and do not to wash it prior to sending.

Submission information: To help control the cost of quilting, we respectfully request a limit of one block per troop (or individual girl member), as we anticipate many submissions. Quilt blocks will be accepted until January 5, 2012. Mail to: Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland, Attn: Quilt Project, 210 S. Ingram Mill Road, Springfield, MO 65802. If you have additional questions, please contact Brigitte Scott at bscott@girlscoutsmoheartland.org or 877-312-4764 x1113. Submission form located at www.girlscoutsmoheartland.org/100th.
