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

Well, it's that time of year again - the one where we make promises about how we aren't going to start anything new until we finish ‘X’ number of old projects - or we aren't going to sew/create/ quilt until we have walked for 1/2 an hour so we can be healthy and productive.

Okay, so I'm not going to make any  of those promises. I am only going to promise that I am going to do my best everyday with whatever is thrown into my path. Hey, living on a farm with pregnant sheep, having 2 teenagers, one of whom is learning to ride the unicycle for her school play, and teaching middle school, I figure that is the best "resolution" that I can commit to for the
New Year.

In the meantime, I will try to finish some of the projects I have found while trying to get the Christmas presents done, try to get my president's message done earlier so it doesn't drive the newsletter editor nuts, and try to not think of myself as a half-empty / half-full kind of person, but just be happy that I have a glass that has something in it!

Happy New year everyone!
