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

As the weather gets colder and the holidays approach, it’s time for us to put our quilting skills to use. I’m always excited about this time of year trying to create the perfect gift for some people but it does put a drain on ourselves, so we need to remember to take a moment and enjoy the world around us.

We have super Saturday shaping up. I still have several places to look at for our guild meetings and I need your input on which place would suit you best. Please understand that the final decision may not be what you want, but what is best for the guild. I am taking everybody’s opinion into consideration. Feel free to contact me by email or by phone to let me know what your thoughts are. The final decision will be announced in the December newsletter and that 
will tell you where the meeting in December will be held.

We are also looking for help with the website. If you have any interest in helping Fay, please let me know.

I’d like to close with the thought from Thorton Wilder’s Our town: “Remember that each moment, every moment counts in the fabric of our life.”

Enjoy the fall weather and the creative season and I’ll see you on November 14.
