See you Tuesday,
Can you believe we are already in November where is the time going? Just imagine if you volunteered for any of the open positions time would go just as fast (half the year already over) and you would feel good knowing you did your part in keeping our guild active.
Our November newsletter is up so take a look at the excitement our executive has for us. My favorite is always the guild sales! We have workshops to sign up for and a list of who is coming in 2019
Saturday Nov 10 is the post card workshop and there are still a few openings best way to get your President’s Challenge well on its way.
Workshops with our guest speakers are listed to remind you of what is coming up quickly! did you see the pictures from Karen Kay Buckley’s visit
Hope you have been stitching so that we can see more of that wonderful Show and share, did you happen to view the items of our last meeting on the web page?
Please go to the executive page you will see there are a couple of positions that require your help! There is a whole executive of people to help you with the office you would like to volunteer for we work as a team, I am sure even past members that have been on the executive would give friendly advice. If you are able to fill any of these positions or thinking of it please email our president she would be glad to hear from you.
Many hands make lighter work as the saying goes but also if these positions are not filled that means that we are also losing out on these special programs due to no one to chair the office.

Thank you for considering! Your quilt guild.
We had great fun with our President starting the meeting with her journey of over 30 years of quilting starting with her first quilt.
Presidents first quilt
Start of a wonderful quilting journey
on her way to a new world of quilting
It is wonderful to hear how other quilters journey’s and how they started, what drew them into this craft Irena’s story was very entertaining, and started our evening with another quilters journey as our guest speaker Karen Kay Buckley
