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:

Most Artistic


Best Beading

Best Embroidery

Best Piecing

Best Applique


Remember, the one requirement is that the name be large enough to read.

2015 Post Show Survey
Greetings from your 2017 show co-chairs!
The planning for our next show started the day after our 2015 show closed.  We're hoping that we can bring everyone along for the ride.  The first step is to ask you for some information about the show, while it is still fresh in your mind. 
To be a part of the survey, please click on this link, or enter the following address in your browser: .  The survey consists of ten short questions, and should take no more than 3-5 minutes to complete.  The more responses we get, the more information we'll have. If you receive your newsletter by email, you may have a duplicate copy of the survey enclosed if you completed one at the meeting. You do not need to submit a second survey. 
The most important question, for us, is the last one:  Are you willing to work on the 2017 show? By filling in your name, you are saying:  Yes, I want a show and I'll do what I can to help.  By omitting your name, you are implying you're not sure you want a show in 2017, and trust me, we are listening. While everyone cannot contribute the same effort, everyone can contribute something.  Two people cannot produce a show; even for twenty people it's asking a lot. Together, we believe we can do it, and we will be counting (and calling) on you!  You'll be hearing from us regularly, online, in the newsletter and in person.  2015 Show comments should appear on the survey so we can report back to you in a future article.
If you have suggestions, comments or donations, please send them to, and please include what you can/plan/hope to do to help.
We thank you for the opportunity to begin this grand adventure!
