President's Message

Greetings and Salutations,

January 3, 2011 was the first meeting of the year, this is traditionally a night to kick off our LUV Quilts Project for the year. This year was no exception; a new pattern was introduced by our Treasurer, Nina Stevens. I can say it is a quick one to put together and it is also a stash buster…however it seems to me I have more pieces now…hmmm…how does that work? The LUV Quilts can use any pattern they do not need to be all made with the pattern given out. We love to see all the ideas everyone has and we always enjoy the Sew and Share portion of the evening.

The program for February 7th is a bit of a redo as last year there was a Hints program also however we have had requests for more, so with a bit of gentle prompting and a lot of chatting (that part was easy) Carolyn Collette has agreed to do Hints Websites and Blog Sites, I would say bring your tablet and pens. 

We need people to either step up and help the Planning Committee or it would be acceptable to give your ideas if you cannot give some time. – either in the Suggestion box or via the email (see above). We have already received a couple of good ideas and they are or will be checked into. Anyone wishing to assist please let one of the Board Member know.

I hope to see you all at our next meeting, Monday, February 7th, 2011, at the Solid Ground Restaurant. Remember you can go in put you things down and then come and sign in, enter your Block of the Month and Fat Quarter etc. We are hoping to streamline the check in process and a plus for you is less standing about waiting. Just do not forget to do it. 
Things to remember for the February Meeting:
Block of the Month you work so hard on / Fat Quarter (Hearts this month) / Badge / Notepaper & Pen (you might want to take notes)

 Refreshments will be provided by: Snacks: Bernie and Laura / Drinks: Sally
