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 am hoping that this finds you all well and healthy. I am sure that if you had asked me in March what I thought would happen for the rest of the quilting year, this would have never been even my wildest prediction. With these interesting turns of events comes some changes to the guild,
albeit temporary, I hope.

First, if you are a current member of FDQ then you will continue to be through June of next year (2021). Your membership is being extended for a year.
This only applies to current members. I feel that we missed 50% of our programming but we also did not have to pay room rental. Our budget is such that it should be able to support this and still provide good quality programming next year. So, this measure is appropriate and a
‘Thank You” for sticking it out through the quarantine. 

Our first meeting on September 16th will happen either virtually or in person. At this point we are planning a “no speaker” meeting with our COVID 19 challenge reveal as well as a Share and Inspire time. It will be a great chance to socialize with people we have not seen in way too long.

I hope all of you have a creative summer- Stay safe, Stay Healthy and keep Quilting.


From Our President – Meegan Veeder-Shave
