Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make our kickoff meeting a great success. We had an enormous crowd of both old and new members and it was great to see everyone again. Since the quilt show we have gained about 30 new members with 4 joining at the meeting. This is very exciting. Please reach out and make our new members feel welcome and encourage them to join our Special lnterest Groups(SIGs) and other activities.
And mentioning our SIGS, Fran Jacobson has offered to lead a beginner quilting group so that our new quilters might have guidance and technical assistance.
Clara Nartey gave a wonderful presentation on creativity. Her trunk show was truly exquisite. We look forward to Rachel Derstine’s lecture in October. She will also be leading a workshop on landscapes. There are still a few openings.
A big thank you to Lisa Alfonzetti of Pins and Needle for the pizza party and fantastic workshop on sewing machine maintenance that she held for our members just before the meeting. Lisa’s shop is close by in Mount Kisco and she will be keeping it open so that members might shop before the meeting.
Also thanks to Meg Mooar for her wonderful Zoom pop-up presentation on Dyeing Fabrics with Natural Materials; the recording link was emailed afterwards in case you couldn’t attend.
Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday October 18th at Fox Lane.
