With the busyness of the holidays behind us and a new year ahead, have you thought about any quilting goals for 2022?  We know that there is a lot of creative energy in our guild and we hope that you will share your knowledge and talents through active participation in guild activities.

How thrilled we were to see so many of you IN PERSON early in December!  The excitement of being together was palpable.  We all enjoyed the talent shared during our Show and Tell and look forward to seeing more in the future.  Doesn’t everyone’s work show better and brighter in the cafeteria?  We think we’ll continue to view it there because we can see our creations up close.  Keep creating so there will be more to enjoy next time we meet in person!  Special thanks to Nancy and Kathy for providing our tasty treats and decor and a big thank you to April for keeping us all engaged and entertained with games and challenges and prizes!

Mark your calendar for A World of Quilts XLI at SUNY Purchase April 30-May 1.  A detailed email from the Quilt Show Committee is coming soon.  Quilt Registration begins in a few weeks and it helps the Registrar if you get your entries in early.  Your quilt does not have to be finished to register.  Check our website www.northernstarquilters.com for up all you need to know about registration.

Hopefully you all had a joyous and restful holiday surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.  Also, we hope that you’re weathering the latest “scare and strain” of COVID and that you are healthy and well.  Take time to take care of yourselves.

A very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Creative New Year to all!

Jody and Margaret, president@northernstarquilters.com
