From the Prez

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Now that the quilt show is behind us, that is. Thanks to everyone who lent a hand in making this year’s  show a success. I heard lots of favorable comments from those attending and we added to our coffers as well. We will be studying the lessons learned from this show – all the dos and don’ts – that will help guide any planning for future shows.

We will be voting on the slate of candidates for the guild board in May. We are still seeking to fill the position of Vice President. Now that we have more money to work with, we can be a bit more expansive as regards the budget for programs. Please consider doing this important job. You may share it with a friend and will be able to select speakers and workshops that reflect your own interests.

We are also looking to fill the positions of Comfort Quilts, Membership, and Newsletter Raffle. This is your guild, so think about taking your turn in making the guild a success. It would be really nice to see some of the new faces step up and volunteer, so don’t be bashful!

As for me, with the quilt show behind me, as well as the  tax season, it is clear sailing or at least it feels that way without anything hanging over my head. I have projects galore, a full stash of fabrics, a big stable of sewing machines (don’t ask!), and a schedule of classes and workshops to keep me busy right into fall. I hope you are finding time to quilt and to spend time with fellow quilting buddies this spring.


Piece Out,
