PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE November 2019
By Deb Kelly
November already! How does that happen? Reading over last year’s President’s Message – the Quilt Show was over…..Next year’s November Message will be similar….in the meantime there is lots of work to be done. Please consider getting involved! We have members who may be nervous to jump in on preparations for the show – “What should I do?” “I don’t know how!” “I don’t know what is expected of me!” “I don’t know anyone!” “I don’t have time”. There are many things to do! No one “knows how” when they have never done it before – LOTS of members who do know how are willing to help you so you can pay it forward in future years. You will meet members that you have only waved at in the past; no better way to meet, work with, and perhaps make a close friend! All of us are busy. Some things (like ribbons, or getting gift cards, or getting a raffle basket together) don’t take a large time commitment. We have a year, and many things can be done on your own time at your own pace without a commitment to attend alot of meetings.
SOOOO, at our meeting in November please seek out Nancy Arico or Cindy Faulkner and express your willingness to help!
Speaking of helping….we have many new members to celebrate! The New Member Tea will be here before you know it. Mary Alice Peeling has volunteered to plan our next event in the Spring, but she can’t (and doesn’t want to) do it alone. Same questions as above? Same answers…..
SOOOO, at our meeting in November please seek out Mary Alice and express your willingness to help!
We are happy to welcome Judith Baker Montano who will present “CRAZY QUILT AFFAIR” - a digital presentation of antique and contemporary crazy quilting along with many samples of her artwork showing how she uses crazy quilting in her artwork and why. She will share samples of her work. I see another project on the horizon, just in time for the winter!
Getting ready for my winter hibernation,
