Fabracadabra the Magic of Quilting Quilt Show 2019 came to a very successful conclusion in April due to the very hard work of the Quilt Show committee. The committee headed by Erin Haugh and Kate McIntyre had worked endlessly overcoming many hurdles to present a show we can all be proud of. I want to thank each member of that committee and all the volunteers for all their work. If you get a chance please let them know how much you appreciated the Quilt Show, and if you have any suggestions they will be more than happy to hear them.
For our meeting this month we are pleased to have Quilt designer and author, Karla Alexander. She is the author of many books and has released her own line of patterns under the name of Saginaw Street Quilt Company. I think you will enjoy her lectures at our meetings this month. Be sure to come.
Another reason to come to our meeting this month so your voice can be heard in the vote for the new officers for the next year. We will be voting on the AM president and AM vice president and the secretary.
Several other things also coming up to keep in mind:
Membership deadline is coming due so be sure to get your application/renewal form in by June 30 so your information is in membership directory.
Annual Awards Nominations are due May 31 so get your nominations in for Lifetime Achievement, Volunteer of the Year, Special Achievement and Outstanding Service awards.
On several occassions I have heard members of the board say that no one reads our newsletter. If this is so please tell us what you want to see in your newsletter. What will make it grab your attention and keep it. What will make you anxious to get the next newsletter. We want to make this the best newsletter but we need your feedback. What do you like? What don’t you like? Do you read it all or not and why? Send me an email email@example.com or tell me in person. I want to know what you think of the newsletter.
I hope you are enjoying this lovely spring. Very happy quilting and see you at the general meeting in May.
Randi Roten PM President
