President’s Message – January 2017

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

Hope you are all rested from these busy times. We have had a successful year in the Guild with our presentations, Demos, quilt school and guild challenges. With everyone’s help we have been able to send out a large quantity of quilts into the community through My Sister’s Place and Matthew’s House. We can be proud of our involvement with our Outreach projects. We have seen a variety of quilts and learnt a variety of techniques through our demos.

We have a great year ahead of us in the Guild and it should be fun and interesting. This is the year of our Quilt Show which is a busy time for all of us. It is a time to showcase the work we have done over the last two years. All of our members have created, contributed or learnt many thing and we will present them to the world this June. Please take the time to think about what contribution you will make to the show. It is our major fundraiser so that we can have presenters and activities over the next two years. Your contribution will ensure that we have a successful show.

We have a number of presenters booked for the coming year. Ruth Kennedy will present her quilt journey and discuss curved piecing. Lorna McMahon will bring us new patterns to explore and purchase as well a present her quilts. Dorthy Fu has a number of quilts with whimsical animals and thread work she will show us.

Just a reminder of the month things are due:

March – Row by Row reveal

April -Quilt Show challenge is in to Nuella

Thank you for your support over the last year. I could not have done it without our great program committee and the executive. They make the job easier.

Have a great year.

Judy Cotter

President
