Happy New Year everyone.  I cannot believe it is already 2015.  Thus far, the board has a great start to our guild activities.  January will be a busy meeting.  We will have Tammy McDaniel come and talk about an exciting quilting trip.  A new round robin will start, I hope everyone will participate.  It was such great fun last year and for a good cause.  Not sure about yourself but it tested my skill level also.  Lynda and Edith will tell us about workshops and charity for the year.  Our very own Marie Robert will have a short program for us.  And of course Show and Tell of all your beautiful work.  Hope to see you on Thursday.

ELECTIONS AND CHRISTMAS PARTY!

Here it is December! We had a fabulous meeting last month with our charities and quilt presentations but we are waiting until the Daily News publishes to put the pictures on our blog. Who knows when that will happen! It was very successful and we collected nearly $100 in Burger King Cards! Thank you to everyone who participated!

We had our elections last month and the results are in!

President: Pam Martin

Vice President: Lynda Richardson

Treasurer: Linda Holverson

Secretary: Sherry Painter

Thank you for those who ran for the board! I am excited for our new board to take over in January! Wonder why? Actually, I have enjoyed my two years as your president! It has been a lot of fun and we’ve accomplished many things! Next year, I have volunteered to help Edith Bullock with charity!

CHRISTMAS PARTY!

Let’s have some fun on Dec 11! Bring a pot luck dish to share as what is better than eating with your friends! We will also have a gift exchange with a few rules!

For your gift you need to take a BROWN PAPER LUNCH BAG and decorate it. You need to fill the bag with 3 quilt shop quality fat quarters and one notion! Bring your decorated bag and we will have an exchange with a fun way to do it! Surprises in store!

We have worked hard this year and lets have an enjoyable evening with our quilting friends!
