May President’s Letter

Greetings Mudsock Quilters, It’s May, it’s May, the lovely month of May.

It’s where flowers bloom and quilters swoon and go merrily astray. Well, maybe those aren’t exactly the words but it’s how I feel.

I’ve had a very busy month. As I might have mentioned at the last meeting, we recently got a dog. She is a 1 year old labradoodle named Coco. She is a great companion for my mom while I am gone a lot. But wow has it been a big adjustment and a lot of work. She gives me a great reason to get outside and go walking at least twice a day, so I am thankful for the nicer weather. But now on to quilting news.

The “Hearts of Hope” for Ukraine quilt is progressing nicely. We have had between 8-11 ladies each week working diligently. We will be meeting again on Wednesday, May 4 at Delaware township from 9:30 to 3:00. You are welcome to come help us. It has been a fun way to get better acquainted with each of these ladies in a small type group. We are planning to raffle off the quilt with all the proceeds going to “Together Rising” in their efforts to provide real support–boots on the ground support, for the people of Ukraine, from the Bonnie Hunter blog.

I would like to encourage you to find a time to join one of our Sew-Ins, whether it’s the Charity Sew-Bee on the 3rd Monday of each month at Community North or the monthly Sew-Bee day on the 4th Wednesday of each month or join a committee. It’s the best way to get to know more members.

Our programs committee is looking for members to join their committee. They need help with minimum set up for our speakers, displays, set up for workshops and help with programs where we don’t have a speaker. Great way to become involved. Please consider joining.

Speaking of programs. We are in need of more volunteers for our June “Christmas in June” meeting. I know there are lots of great ideas for homemade gifts so please sign up to share your favorite ones.

Now go out and enjoy all the flowers blooming and get some colorful inspiration. “If something “Pops” into your mind, no matter how crazy it may be, grab ahold of it and see where it leads you.” Bob Ross

Just be careful if you think you want a dog.

Everything is Possible

See you all at our Monday guild meeting.
