Dear Guild Members,
As a reminder, several members been asking whether the guild was going to host a quilt show in the future. Since this issue was part of the Listening Sessions that were conducted while Cathy was President, I had thought that most members were against having a regular quilt show and preferred hosting various exhibits instead. Since we have several new members, and members were asking, we thought people’s opinions may have changed. There is a survey addressing this concern on the website. Please take the time to complete the survey and let us know how you feel about having a “Traditional Quilt Show” or something similar. Only a few members have completed the survey at this time. Please do so before the deadline of October 10th. Thank you.
Another thing that was discussed at the last meeting was what to do about a raffle quilt for 2023? Several things have been suggested and discussed. The Board has decided to accept a donation from Susan Foster of a completed quilt top that she made using one of The Quilt Show’s Block-a-Month designs. Also, Vicky has said that she would take care of managing the tickets for us. Thank you, Susan, for this very generous donation! And thank you, Vicky!
I’m afraid that I will miss the next guild meeting but hope that everyone tries to come out for the Zoom lecture that is scheduled with Claudia Martinez. It’s going to be a fun-filled night! We will be drawing the winner for the 2022 Raffle Quilt (so make sure to get your ticket stubs turned in!), and I understand that some special refreshments will also be served!
For those of you who missed the September meeting, the Nominating Committee, Mary Frankle and Chris Pochwat, nominated Jeanne Biddle for Vice-President and Pat Bowes for Secretary! Voting, and any nominations from the floor, will take place during the October meeting. Thank you, Mary and Chris, for presenting these fine nominees, and thank you, Jeanne and Pat, for being willing to step forward to help our guild. Until next time…
