November President’s Letter

I’m baaaack!!! and boy am I thankful!

I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to seeing everyone at our November meeting. I have been housebound for far too long and I’m ready for some socializing.

My quilting has been minimal, but I look to all of you, my sisters in quilting, for inspiration as you are all fantastic at providing that. It is especially true with the wonderful show and tell at our meetings.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Maya Angelou

Hope everyone has the Guild quilt show marked on their calendars for Saturday, November 12. There will be well over 200 quilts to view, offering tons of inspiration.

Then for December our hospitality committee is working hard on our luncheon meeting. This is always a fun event so read that announcement in this newsletter and note the special start time for the December meeting.

So much is going on and I have missed so much. I am truly thankful for this guild, your support and your friendship.

August Program-2022 Challenge

The August meeting reveled the 2022 Challenge quilts the members were working on. The Challenge was to bring our First quilt we ever made and then show our interpretation of it in 2022. It didn’t have to be the same pattern, it could be anything that the maker wanted it to be. Some brought their First quilts to share, others didn’t have them to bring, and the rest brought both.
