Dear Guild Members,
It certainly has been a busy month for our guild! We recognized two babies born on National Quilting Day by presenting them with lovely quilts made by Maureen Flaherty and Theresa Thacker. Thank you, ladies! See the photos in the body of the newsletter! They are adorable. It sounds like members had a great workshop with Annie Smith learning about color and value. Our Day of Sharing was earlier today, and we were all treated to a festive day with lots of good food to eat and beautiful quilts to admire. Everyone there seemed very glad to be able to gather again for a fun quilting activity with fellow quilters. A BIG THANK YOU to Cindy Moeller and everyone on the Day of Sharing Committee!! Your hard work paid off and was appreciated by everyone there.
Unfortunately, bad weather and dangerous winds caused the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival to be cancelled. We’ll try again next year. Beaufort’s Publick Day is scheduled for April 23rd. Let’s all hope for good weather and a good turnout on that day. If you can, please come out and help Nancy Smith sell some tickets!
The Cape Carteret to Cape Lookout Quilt Ramble is still going on until the last day of March. Please try to visit your local library and see our quilts on display. Several members have already been able to visit ALL of the exhibits in the county. See if you can join that elite group!! Don’t forget, there was a mention of prizes to those who visited all exhibits. We have heard from the various libraries that visitors have really enjoyed seeing the exhibits. Thank you again, Nan Miller, for making this happen!
Please try to make it to our April guild meeting. Chris Pochwat is having her PHD Graduation, announcing how members have done with the PHD Challenge this past year. Who will be the Valedictorian?? And I believe that she will be announcing what the next Challenge will be for us. It should be an exciting evening. We will be meeting in the Conference Room at the Fisher Street Recreation Center this time. This will enable us to try out their system for hosting Zoom on the big screen TV they have in that room. We will be in that room for our May meeting also.
Until then, keep stitching!
