President’s Letter

March 2024

Spring is around the corner!  It teased us for a few days in February and looks like another bit of spring is on the way.  Indiana is so up and down!  If you are in our Mudsocks Facebook group, you may have seen Amanda’s “temperature” block for January – can’t wait to see her February block.

By the way, our Facebook group is “closed,” which means only paid members of Mudsocks have access.  So feel free to post in there knowing it is not seen read more

Cindy Reynolds died on February 22, 2024. She was the driving force behind starting Mudsock  Quilt Guild. Cindy saw the need for a guild located between QGI in Indianapolis and Common Threads in Mount Comfort. She believed the Fishers area would also support a quilt guild. She gathered people around her who could see her vision. She made sure the guild was legally correct and financially viable.

Cindy saw the guild primarily as a place to learn quilting. She was always learning new techniques read more

February President’s Letter

Mudsocks is off to a great 2024!  Our first meeting of the year gave us a chance to learn about the various committees and to see what fun the Program team has in store for us.  We had great participation in Committee sign-ups – and don’t worry, we will have lots of opportunities to help as the year progresses.

While the January Community Sew Day had to be canceled due to road conditions, the store room “strippers” have been busy re-arranging the shelves and creating quilt kits for read more

January Meeting

What better way to get to know people that share the same interests as you? Join a committee.  Members…click the “about” then click 2024 leadership. There you can check out all of the committees.  If one looks good to you, contact the committee chair person and let them know you want to join them.

Another Show is in the books!

What a wonderful show it was! And what a gorgeous day we had to bring the people out. Attendance was high, to the point the main parking lot was full. What a great problem to have.

Visitors got to see over 300 quilts on display, spanning a year of work by guild members to provide these quilts of comfort to hospital patients on Christmas Day. Our visitors got to see gorgeous quilts, have a chance at wining a door prize, vote for their 3 favorite quilts, and shop read more

Brown Bag Mystery Parade

The wonderful Storeroom Strippers put together a Brown Bag Mystery QAL for Community Charity Quilts. They dug into the scraps and strips and came up with over 50 Brown Bag Mystery Quilts to be distributed amongst guild members for construction and completion. At the September meeting we had a Parade of the Brown Bags! 40 quilts were paraded across the stage and down the aisles to show the members, new and old, what the guild can do when a great group of gals puts their minds to our brawn!
