My first month as President has gone very smoothly. It is such a pleasure to work with such talented, dedicated people.

The Guild has a new position, Social Media Chair. Kitty Nowack has taken on the role and dived head first into making the Guild’s social presence current and active. We now have a Twitter account and you can find the Guild @GQCCC_Official and by using #contracostaquilters. Kitty is also working on setting up an Instagram account.

If you are on Facebook and have liked the Guild’s page, Contra Costa Quilt Guild, you may have noticed new posts appearing on your news feed. Kitty has been busy posting and putting our events on the calendar. We are currently at 395 likes, let’s see if we can get to 500 likes by next month.

All members can help spread the quilting bug on social media by reposting on your social media and forwarding pictures of our activities to Kitty at [email protected] Please include the names of the people in the picture for Kitty.

Our Quilt Show chair, Donna Brooks, has found our featured artists for the 2020 Show – sisters, Jean Jurgenson and Aileyn Ecob. Check out their website, fiberonthewall.com to see all their beautiful quilt creations

If you have not yet renewed your membership, please turn in your membership forms and dues to the Farmhouse or bring them to the meeting this month. It will be a member appreciation event with games and a focus on being a Greener Quilter. To keep with the theme, if you can carpool to the meeting with another quilter friend, please do.

Thank you to everyone that has been pitching in helping recover from the storage break-in. As the saying goes, many hand make light work.

Happy Quilting,
Doreen O’Brien
President 2019-2021
