Hi Everyone

It is a new year and we have a lot of quilting ahead of us.

Erica Riekki has stepped forward to take over the position of Farmhouse Manager. If you want to know anything about the Farmhouse, call Erica. Thank you, Erica.

Please remember to make one (or many more) blocks for the Thomas Fire Victims. There’s an article from Dale Wolfe with more information in this newsletter. It’s an easy block. Let’s see how many we can produce for the fire victims.

Remember the Quilt Show is just two and half months away. Hopefully you’re working on your entry for show. Also remember to volunteer to help work the show. All hands on deck for a great show!

After many years, Ellen Heathcote is stepping down as Patriotic Chair after the Quilt Show. If you have an interest in this area, please talk to Ellen.

In addition, we will have three board positions up for election in May. The treasurer, second vice-president, and recording secretary positions are available. We have procedure manuals for the positions and the outgoing officers are willing to help with the transition. We also need people to help nominate good qualified people for these positions. This is really two-pronged request: if you are interested in any of these positions or helping with nominations, please contact me. Or least don’t say no when I call you!!

Stay dry during the rain and keep on quilting.

Becky Styles
President 2017-2019
