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 the Community.  They are always open on the Tuesday after our monthly meeting, and I encourage you to visit.

I was lucky to get one of the spots in our first Skill Builder class – and made a couple of “Call Me” badge holders for friends – now all my former co-workers want one.  I don’t mind because Chris Behme did such a great job teaching, it was easy and fun.  The Skill Builder team were great hosts as well!

Mudsocks Quilts of Valor had a sew-in day – it was so much fun!  The team made it easy by having quilt kits ready to go – although more people came than they had kits.   Since they had a very generous donation of fabrics and panels, it was easy for everyone to participate. Almost all of those 95 blocks we donated in January are now in quilt tops!

Hospitality is sponsoring a new member gathering on February 16th.  Old and new members are encouraged to attend as it gives the new members a chance to learn more about the guild and maybe make some new friends.  Some learning and friendships can happen for us “old” ones as well.  Be sure to sign up at our general meeting.


  • Please come a few minutes early so that you can be in your seat right at 9:30 when the fun begins.
  • If you are able, please park in the side parking lot at the church
  • Wear your name tag and bring a $1 donation and/or donation item for Cornerstone Lutheran

Happy Valentine’s Day!
