We have reached the time of the year when we take a hiatus from our quilt meetings. It's a time when we can sit in the parks and enjoy watching children & dogs play, ride our bikes, go for a swim, visit a museum or travel to some faraway place. As creative people we are always observing and planning our next project.
This month we have a substitute speaker. I wish to thank Lisa Belle and Mary Butler for their quick thinking and coming up with RaNae Merrill when Anita was forced to canceled. Good team work saved the day.
Many thanks to Mary Butler for arranging the exhibit at the Manhattan Borough Presidents office on the 19th floor at 1 Center St. South. It's a great way to show our work for the entire month of June. We plan to continue to work and find other venues to showcase our art.
I would also like to thank all of you for supporting me as your president. I have received many kind words and I wish to thank all of you.
Have a safe and productive summer and I hope to see all of you in Sept. We are planning an exciting year.

NEW PRESIDENTS’ CONTEST/CHALLENGE
At the Guild meetings, have you ever wanted to know who you were talking to, but were too embarrassed to ask? This contest/challenge will solve that problem. As your new presidents, Lee and Kitty challenge each member to make their own name badge. This can be any size, shape, style-as long as fabric is involved. We are issuing the challenge in June and in September we will judge them and award prizes in the following categories:
Remember, the one requirement is that the name be large enough to read.
