From the President

Krista Hennebury signing copies of her book

WOW! I was so happy and pleased to hear Krista Hennebury reflect on our guild, and highlight how we welcome quilters of all styles—modern, traditional, art, and handwork. That is what our Guild stands for, and I am proud to be its president. Let it be known that we welcome all quilters, and all skill levels. Bring on the show and tell!

The feedback I received from Krista’s presentation was overwhelmingly positive. It was certainly a lively meeting and filled with laughter. The meeting ended with lucky Sue Garries, winning $48.00 for the May 50/50 draw.

With the Executive agreement, I have now placed an order for our new wireless sound system. The new system features 2 wireless microphones, and is capable of accepting music over a Bluetooth connection. Hopefully the new system will arrive before our June meeting.

Check out the write-up in this newsletter on the Amica show spearheaded by Leslie Rutledge and a chance to show quilts you have already made and/or shown for a good cause. And start thinking about entries for our Guild show in June 2016.

Wishing everyone a great summer holiday. Do take time to smell the roses in bloom.
