The gloomy days of November are upon us; what a perfect time to spend quilting! I don’t know about the rest of you but I still have to decide what I am entering in our June show and calculating how much time it will take to get it (them) done. My family says I am the “Queen of Procrastination” and need deadlines to get anything done. I can’t imagine where they get that idea from! I hope everyone will enter one or more quilts in the show. Our show is about our members work and showcasing where we are at in our quilting journey. Some are at award winning levels but for the rest of us, we are joyously sewing away, with the support of family and friends, creating memories and good times. All quilts are equally valuable to our show.
We are still looking for a CQA Liaison for our guild. The job is what you make of it – you would not have to stand up at meetings to report unless you wanted to. The idea is to gather information about what is going on with the CQA and to let them know what we are up to. For example, Quilt Canada 2018 is in Vancouver next year and the information about workshops and lectures is now up on their website.
Speaking of reps., it is never too early to start everyone thinking about volunteering for one of our executive positions. At our February AGM we will be voting for six positions, Vice-President, Treasurer, Programs, Communications (formerly Newsletter Editor), Librarian, and one Member-at-Large. Being on the Executive Board is a great way to get to know your fellow guild members. More details to follow from the Nominations Committee.
Happy quilting everyone and I hope to see you all at our Winter Social November 28.
