Connecting You
with the Art of Quilting

The President's Message

Carol Weber

Welcome to the First Dutchess Quilters' Guild.  Whether you are new to the guild or a long time member, we hope you feel welcome at our meetings and other events.  The best way to feel more a part of the group is to get involved, come to meetings, participate in workshops, community quilting, Super Saturday, bus trips, volunteer for a guild position or at the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show.  

President, Carol Weber

“Any idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.”
- Oscar Wilde

There were 91 people present at the April meeting – WOW! I am so pleased that we have such a vibrant guild. A BIG thank you goes to the 4 members who have stepped up and agreed to work for the guild next year as officers! The rest of you may think that you are “off the hook” if you are not an officer, but we still need many volunteers to do other tasks. Currently, we are looking for a group of quilters who are willing to take the lead on the Fall and Spring Super Saturdays. Please consider grabbing some friends and helping in this role. Contact me if you are interested or would like to work on another committee within the guild.

Maintain Your Creativity,
Carol Weber
