Dear Guild Members,
I’d like to thank everyone for the cards and warm wishes sent to me after I underwent surgery recently. For those who did not get my email, after tripping and falling last May, I had a CT scan, where they found some nodules on my thyroid. Long story short, I needed to have my thyroid removed, and that was done on August 16th. Everything went well. I only stayed one night in the hospital and have been feeling better day by day.
Since Lisa was out of town for the guild meeting, Vicky stepped in and ran the meeting for me. Thank you, Vicky! One of the things she discussed was whether the guild wants to pursue hosting a quilt show in the future. Several members have heard others ask about it. The board is going to put together a survey to get everyone’s opinion on the matter. We will be sharing the survey soon.
Don’t forget about the different road trips that the Eastern Carolina guilds are putting together. The group is interested in organizing a road trip to quilt shops in the Fayetteville/Fuquay-Varina area for the weekend of April 13-16, 2023, as well as organizing a trip to Houston in November 2023. If either of these trips interests you, please let me know. The road trip in April would involve ladies driving their own vehicles, not renting a bus. Both sound like fun events, and if you've never been to Houston, it is FABULOUS!!! Every quilter should go at least once!
I hope you can make it to the September meeting. Since there was interest in how I was preserving the antique quilt that I shared recently at a guild meeting, I’m going to share how I am doing that. I am also going to show an easy (yes, I said easy) way to fold fitted bed sheets. If you have been challenged with that in the past, bring a fitted sheet with you that night to learn how to make that challenge a distant memory! Until then…
