Seaming together friendships—one stitch at a time!
Happy Spring!!! Hopefully the flowers will be blooming soon and the temperatures will be warming up! This year has been a good year for the quilt guild and we have had a lot of great speakers. Everyone seems to be learning new skills as they participate in classes and mentoring. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching the reversible tote bag in mentoring.
This month we are painting barn quilts. What fun that shall be. As this year winds down the new officers you elected are preparing to take on new challenges. I want to thank each of them for stepping up and volunteering to help out. Elected at the last meeting was: Gerry Schrock, President; Connie Borth, Vice President; Karen Henry, Secretary and Mary Schoneman, Treasurer. Please continue to support them as you have supported this year’s board.
Looking ahead in May we will have our Salad Supper. June 23-24 will be our retreat here at the church. Registration form is part of this newsletter and will be available at the programs table at the meeting. Also we are asking you to sign up for the summer sewing days on July 21 and August 18. The fee for the sewing days is only $5 to help cover the cost of renting the facility. These two days we will have bottled water available, but you are on your own for lunch. Please sign up if you know you are coming as it helps us know how many people to set up for.
Let’s again fill the shopping cart in the entry way of the church. We are a very caring and giving group and I am proud to be a part of it! See you at the meeting!
Carolyn Gatenby, President
