A note from the President

Pueblo West Quilt Guild Newsletter
Meeting April 7th, 2009
Ecumenical Church
7: 00 PM

Happy Spring Ladies! Although to me it seems like we didn’t have any winter.
Our attendance is getting larger all the time, that makes me happy.
The block of the month is doing great, if it keeps doing well we’ll most likely split it 
into two drawings. That will please more people.
We’re also going to continue the fat quarter drawings. This month we will exchange
“floral” fat quarters for spring.
Don’t forget to bring your completed blocks for the church donation quilt. And Thank- You very much. Looks like it’s going to be quite nice. Mary Pretzer is going to do the quilting for it, and we’re going to pay her.
Patsy will be demonstrating the block of the month for May. Hopefully we’ll have a lot of teapot blocks for our drawing this month.
Refreshments for this month are brought to us by Renee Kern, Mary Ann McSchooler and Jeannie Renck. Thank-You.
Our program this month is a trunk show, put on by all of you. So ladies dig those antique quilts and others out and bring them to the meeting. Limit three each.
We had fun at our sew Saturday, that type of sewing could become addictive, while you’re also using up lots of scraps.
We will still have our show and tell, and luv quilts—before the trunk show. 
We will be having at least two more sew Saturdays this year. One on quilting with your
Home sewing machine, and one on paper piecing. As soon as I have the dates I’ll let all of you know.
As I’m writing this the Quilt Expo isn’t happening yet, but by the time we have our meeting it will be over. Hope everyone who attended had a great time.
  See you soon,

Pueblo West Quilter's
