President’s Message

Hello Members,

I hope you all have enjoyed a lovely holiday season so far! Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa! Now we look forward to a new year and I hope that 2022 will be a healthy, happy year for all of you! I also hope (and I know you do, too!) that our guild can return to in-person meetings sometime during 2022 once we get past this current virus surge. It has been a trying time but thank you for hanging in there and staying together!

This year we do have some interesting speakers planned as we continue our ZOOM journey…. Next week on Thursday, January 6th, at 7 pm, Candyce Grisham will join us and present her ‘Tools of the Trade’ lecture. In February, Barb Eikmeier will present online her “A is For Applique” lecture and it should inspire us to try applique, if we haven’t already done so. We will have a Charity Night in March where we will get together, online or in person (TBD), and create quilts for donation. As the months go by, there will be more speakers and outdoor activities once the weather warms. Please let me know what you think and send your thoughts; new project and activity ideas are always welcome. There will be online Sit ‘n Sews scheduled in January, February and March so please join us and bring along a project or come share ideas. It is always fun to see everyone and catch up in a casual setting.

PLEASE remember that we will need a new slate of officers to vote for and the slate needs to be set up by March to be ready for the May election. The guild needs a nominating committee/person to make this happen so please contact me (mshoe5678@gmail.com) if you can help with nominations.

I wish you a wonderful, successful, healthy, peaceful, and happy 2022!

Stay well and keep on quilting!
