Hello quilt friends,
I hope all that helped on our Quilt Spectrum show have fully recovered. I didn’t realize how much walking was involved. From Wednesday to Saturday, I walked over four miles each day. I had a little chuckle when my health app told me I had significantly increased my level of activity over the past five days! Boy did I figure that out real fast. I used a walker for a few days because the knees did not like the constant bone on bone activity. Oh well, it was so great to see the beautiful quilts, quilters, and our community out sharing our craft. We will have the total report from Gwynne Bettish in this newsletter or at the Dec. meeting.
Our Dec meeting sounds like an interesting one with a discussion on Hobbs battings. I hope you will print off the information sheet located in this newsletter and on the website. For those members who do not use computers, I have put it with my article. Also, remember the Proposed By-Laws will be voted on at the general meeting on Dec. 2, 2021. When you check in at the members table you will be handed a ballot to answer and deposit into the ballot box on your way into the sanctuary.
The Holidays have arrived, and it is going to be a busy time for most of us. I hope your families and friends enjoy gathering together and that we all stay healthy as we share in the festivities. As a Christian, I want to wish Merry Christmas to each of you. I know that whatever or however you celebrate you share peace and health. Enjoy what you love most, and I look forward to seeing you.
Stormy Dawn Helton
