Meeting Notes

Note from our President:

Hello Spring. Isn’t it wonderful to see the flowers starting to bloom and the days getting warmer? Always gives me hope.

Well, bad news first. We will no longer be meeting at the Elks RV clubhouse; I am currently trying to get hold of the lodge downtown as well as the DAV to see if we can meet there. If anyone has any ideas or contacts, please let us know. So due to these unforeseen circumstances, we will not have an April meeting, As far as I know the Trunk Show and Borders class will still be held there. If that changes, we will let you know.

I will be gone for about 6 weeks, so if you have any help or problems, please contact Mary Bennett or any other Board member.

Good news is a lot of us have started or completed our vaccine protocol and hopefully we can get back to normal soon.

Start thinking about what you want to showcase at the Quilt Show May 14-15th. Also, don’t forget those boutique items.

In spite of these trying times, we have several new members and I can’t wait until we are all together and you can meet these women.

Please, please try to think of a meeting place, we don’t mind paying but some places want as much as $200 each meeting and we just can’t afford that.

Looking forward to getting back to normal soon. Miss you all.

Vyn Wayne

  • Members participating in the Round Robins said it is going well. All are trying new techniques and have found themselves stretching their abilities. Future round robins rules may be to choose to put embellishments as the next layer instead than adding a row; another idea was to have a row by row , or to have slips with various techniques labeled on them put into a box, and then draw from the box the technique for that months block. Members were asked if they have participated in a round robin, to bring their item to show and tell for inspiration.
