A Note From Our President

Dear Members,

How wonderful it has been to resume our monthly meetings as a group and enjoy the company of friends and fellow quilters in a safe and newly renovated space.

During this “Time of COVID-19”, we have had to learn new rules about social distancing and new meaning to the words “cohort” and “bubble”.  We have had to augment our wardrobes with masks, and shields and learn more about ZOOM meetings and on-line classes.  We have sewn masks, and scrub bags and donated tote bags and HUGS quilts.  We have sanitized our hands over and over…we have missed weddings and funerals and graduations.  We have helped each other during these strange and often unbelievable times, and we have survived it all.

We are quilters.

I would like to thank the executive who worked behind the scenes.  To Jennifer and Jillian for pursuing the elusive closet space.  To Karen V, Helene V and her husband, Catherine R and Patty R for moving stored items and setting up the closet.  To Chris P for moving the library and to the Education committee led by Sharon M in creating the most wonderful October speaker and workshop with Brett Lewis.  To Annie and Catherine R for arranging our first QTUW (with another one coming up on Nov 14th!) and to Donna C and Patty R for sending our the most wonderful newsletters and working diligently to ensure that safety protocols are in place.  We are incredibly lucky to have all these energetic people working on our behalf.

We look forward to seeing each of you soon and welcome new members to our guild.  Stay well,

Deb Boutilier Gerrie
