Exploring creativity through quilting

From the President

Dear Guild Members,

Reflecting on the last three years as your president, I am reminded of the opening lines of A Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. . .” From my perspective the Guild has had some wonderful times over the past couple of years: staging a successful quilt show with stunning quilts and touching memorials to some of our former members; coming together for listening sessions and creating new goals for the future of the Guild; partnering with local libraries to bring our art to the community and with the hospital, to help patients in need of care.

And then the worst of times: COVID-19 with illness, death, anxiety, and isolation. Yet, in the midst of the pandemic, angels emerged from our ranks, making masks for first responders. With time at home, our members made scores of quilts for kids and veterans. We found ways to connect through Zoom meetings, writing notes in the newsletter, and telephone calling. Our Workshop Committee pivoted to an online format, bringing us workshops and lectures from nationally recognized teachers, and we were motivated by the UFO and PHD challenges.

Although the future remains uncertain with regard to COVID-19, its variants and what we need to do to remain safe and healthy, I am convinced that the Crystal Coast Quilters’ Guild will thrive. We have not only weathered this crisis as a group, we have continued to care for each other, and those in need, through our love of quilting. I look forward to our future together, continuing to build our relationships and enjoying each other while making a contribution to our community.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your president.

Warmly,

Cathy
