Quilting is a golden thread….that binds our hearts and souls together.
November has come in and reminded us that winter is not far away. But the cold weather and snow make me think winter is already here! I find I have many things to be grateful for this week as we celebrate Thanksgiving. I wish you all a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
Our next Guild meeting is December 6 at 7:00. Our speaker this month is Bill Kerr. I know he will have much to share with us. His lecture on Thursday is Modernism and Quilts. He will have workshops on Friday on Working with Large Scale Prints and Saturday on Rediscovering Your Stash. A reminder to all who are signed up for Saturday workshop: the workshop will start at 8:00 rather than 9:00 and dismiss at 2:30. The church is needed for a funeral/Memorial service at 4:30. Lunch will only be a half hour rather than an hour only on that day.
The full Board will meet on Thursday before the regular meeting at 5:30. I hope the chair or representative for all committees can be there. It is good to catch up with what is happening in the Guild.
Plans are moving along for the Quilt Spectrum. There are several committees that still need a chair and volunteers. Let Gwyenne know if you can help out.
The Salad Supper will be held May 9 the week after the quilt show. I have one volunteer so far to work on that. I will have a sheet out at the meeting in December for more volunteers. Maybe one of the committees would like to plan the Salad Supper.
A reminder also that fleece jackets, and vests and denim shirts are on sale each month. They have the Quilt Guild logo on them. There are several available to try on. They can be ordered one month and they will be delivered the next month.
I hope you can find a little time to keep up with your sewing and quilting during this busy time of year.
