President's Newsletter

I hope this finds all enjoying the Seasons Best with just the New Year’s celebration and then time to recuperate. Now that those pesky holidays are about concluded it is time to get back to the fun part of life as a quilter……quilting of course, or designing, or piecing, or what ever part you like the best…then come to Sew and Share – we wanna’ see what you like the best and all forays into different arenas of the craft. So, hey, here comes the New Year with all that fun to share.


The first meeting for 2011 will be held on Monday the 3rd of January, at the Solid Ground Restraurant, 412 S McCulloch Blvd. The doors will open at 6:30 pm. It is once again time for the payment of our dues. This year the dues are $25.00 for the year and due by the February meeting. All guests fees are $3.00 per meeting.


As is the tradition we will be kicking off our ongoing LUV Quilt Project, during the January 2011 meeting. You will receive the pattern and instructions on the night of the meeting. (unfortunately due to size of our guild we will be unable to sew at the meeting)


It is time to get out the By-Laws and check them out – it will be good to go over them – for this meeting look at the committee section and see if you may be able to assist. Perhaps the proverbial ‘Many hands make lighter work for all’ can be enacted and lived out.
