The President's Message

Meegan Veeder-Shave

Have you ever wanted to learn how to quilt?
Do you want to learn new quilting ideas and techniques?
Do you want to meet people who have fiber art interests and make new friends?

Join us for motivation, encouragement and camaraderie. All levels of quilters are welcome. We have workshops and speakers and special events to provide opportunities to learn and practice quilting in its many different forms. We would love to see you come and learn about this truly expressive art.
Meegan Veeder-Shave- President

I can’t believe that half of the summer has flown by and in my house we are looking at a really busy month. The newsletter is just touching base and letting you know what is coming up this coming year. If you could double check that everyone you know who has been a member got this. If they haven’t let us know so we can send them an email right away. If you are interested in helping out with the guild in any way- please let me know. That being said- my information in the membership directory appears to be incorrect- you can reach me at my email- , my phone number is 845-380-9639 and if you have any concerns, questions or want to volunteer to help- feel free to contact me- ( as an FYI from August 17 until September 3, I am at the Dutchess County Fair and up at State fair – I will get back to you but it may be delayed- feel free to stop by and see us at Patchwork Pastures in the sheep barn.)
