A big thank you to Susan Rood and Barbara Niekerk for getting everything organized for the first public showing of our beautiful raffle quilt (donated by Chris Bagley – thank you). Our friends at Meraki Studio (Kristin, Jocelyn, and Liz) graciously offered their space as the site for the quilt’s first public showing, in time for the Warren Walkabout on October 21.
Dozens and dozens of people passed by our table, saw the beautiful quilt we had on display, and chatted with me or Claudette Reuss, who also volunteered to staff the table. Thank you, also, to Catherine Hawkes and Janet Roche for designing the great bookmark created for the Raffle Quilt and Show – it always helps to have something people can walk away with to remember the Guild.
I am happy to report that we have filled several of the open positions within the Guild. Allison will be moving to website updating, Claudette will assume the NEQM representative duties, and Elaine is helping with the membership database management. We have a new member, Mary, who will be assisting with PR – we now have an Instagram account, so follow us!
As a reminder, in general, please follow the Guild on Facebook and set up your account to receive notifications from us. Jennie and Mary will be working together to ensure that information is current and notices of Guild events are posted, as well as other links to great information and tutorials on quilting.
