Hello Quilters,

Well, if you had asked me in March whether we would be having a FDQ meeting in September, I would have said “Definitely” and yet here we are. Our meetings will be virtual for September and October. We will take a look at what is going on and our options and figure out where we are going next. I know that some of us are more skilled at virtual meetings than others- so I will offer a practice zoom meeting the Monday before our meetings. So if you are not sure what to do with this you can try it out in a relaxed setting just email me for the invite by sending an email to patchworkpastures475@gmail.com. The guild invite will be emailed on the Monday before the meeting. If you don’t see it, drop me an email.


Right now, we as a guild have to comply with the governor’s order of no groups of more than 50 but in conjunction with that our meeting place has to allow outside groups which right now they are only allowing less than 20 people in the building at a time. This is why we are virtual right now.
As far as the quilters go- I recognize that we are a shadow of what our guild has been but for right now many things are on hold- so we won’t be having community quilts, the retreat, super Saturday, in person workshops etc. We will add back these programs when it is safe and feasible for all our members and we are able to with our venue. For right now let’s embrace our virtual get-together.


For this month, we are going to try a virtual share and inspire- if you did the COVID challenge that I issued in June please send me the photos with a short description. I will try to group those together if you want to talk about your work we can have you unmute and chat about your work. If you have other share and inspire items- send them too and I will have a non COVID challenge section as well.


So with all that being said, I want to encourage you to join us and continue quilting if it gives you pleasure. Talking to some of our members, some have said they lost their mojo so maybe this would help to inspire you. So, I hope to see you and we can connect virtually for the next couple of months

In quilting,
Meegan
