Good Morning, Quilting Friends!

We are back at Centre Concord for 2016, so please be sure to join us there for our general meetings, as many wonderful speakers have been engaged to inform, inspire and entertain us.

The first quarter of the year is a busy time for our guild with Quilt Show on our minds.   As individuals, we are busy preparing our quilts, so that we can enter them in the Quilt Show.   As a guild, we are busy preparing to host the Quilt Show.

As you know, our guild provides great guest speakers, guest speaker classes, a nice venue, a Farmhouse for mini groups, member led workshops, and outreach opportunities, but it is only possible through our membership fees, Opportunity Quilt tickets sales and our Quilt Show.  So please support our guild’s activities with your purchase of tickets, donations to Country Store and volunteering at the show.

Hundreds of Volunteer Time Slots need filling during the Quilt Show, so please sign up at the February and March general meetings.  And don’t forget your Apron with our Weathervane block on it.  Beverly’s has aprons for $5.00 and instructions for making the Weathervane Block are on gqccc.org under QUILT SHOW.

Getting involved and becoming more active by volunteering will greatly improve your guild experience.   As you know, when I say “become more active in the guild” I really mean “make more friends”.   We become friends as we work together, doing something we enjoy, laughing, talking together.  The work is just the excuse to get together.  So please volunteer for the Quilt Show and work with us so we can all become good friends.
