Dear fellow friends and quilters,
What an amazing start we’ve had to our quilting year!
A successful quilt show, 2 quilt til you wilt(s) with wonderful demonstrations for our stitch and learn sessions. A workshop with Joan L, which I hope she will be willing to hold again, for personal reasons… and another sold out workshop with visiting presenter, Cathy U from Winnipeg.
Our education committee has outdone itself with two guest speakers and a star challenge for all members to participate in. We have heard from the Visions committee about our upcoming show in 2020 and are looking forward to having a record number of colourful pieces to display at this event.
Peggy L has gently passed the HUGS housekeeping to Lori J and the fabric and batting is being stored at Wendy’s. If you have HUGS pieces ready, could you please bring them to our next meeting. We need about 12 – 15 new quilts to add to our inventory. Unfortunately, there is a constant demand for these quilts and we want to be able to supply them at all times.
A special thank you to all the members of the executive for the work they do for the guild. And just a tiny reminder that there will be some executive position openings coming up in May, and we would love to have you join us. Please consider this whether you are a new member or one who has been with the guild for many years.
With the holidays upon us, I wish for each of you, that the kindness and joyfulness of the season follow you into the new year and beyond,
