Presidents Message – Sept. 2014
I would like to open by welcoming back our members to the 2014 -2015 season. This new season promises to be full of excitement, team work and fun leading up to our next Guild Show in March 2015. If you haven’t volunteered for a job please do so at the September meeting.
Thanks to Lisa Kehrle and Larry Gifford for scheduling the meetings throughout the summer to keep our show efforts on track.
No doubt many of you have been working on your show entries.
Many thanks to Lee Ebs and Beth Pile for organizing the monthly charity sew-ins. City Quilter provided their classroom space and we were also able to use their Bernina machines. If you haven’t used one this would be an opportunity to check them out. Much was accomplished at these gatherings for the benefit of many. In the fall Lee has scheduled the use of City Quilter’s class space on the Saturday evening two weeks following our monthly meeting.
Hopefully our members who attended Quilting by the Lake will share the work they did during our monthly “Show and Tell”.
