Our August Zoom Social was a big hit. We had four quilt shops give unique presentations that showcased beautiful fabrics, provided some great inspirations, and made us laugh and smile.

Sharon Arce stepped down as Membership Secretary to enjoy retirement. We are grateful for the time she gave the guild. Jean Gualtieri is now Membership Secretary and Mary Lou Gallagher is now Corresponding Secretary. We created a Membership Out-reach committee. Pat Abernathy, Debbie Flanders, Joan Reed, Nancy Van Meter, and Jean Gualtieri will help keep members connected.

Thank you, ladies for volunteering. It takes many people to help this guild run smoothly.

To save costs, the membership directory is available as a pdf file in the member’s section of the website. This will allow it to easily be updated as new members join the Guild.
