Once again I am starting my message with an important reminder – the April meeting is to be held on April 25. This is one week later that when we normally would meet since the school is closed for spring break the previous week.

If you have not registered a quilt yet or have another one that you could enter, please do so.  Registration has been extended until April 7 and we could use a few more quilts.  The diversity and number of quilts we have on display at our show are what help make our show so fantastic.  Don’t forget also to sign up for volunteering at the show.  Although we ask that all members volunteer for at least two hours, you don’t need to limit yourself to that.  Did you know that if you volunteer for four hours, you will be able to attend the show for free on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Guild’s Annual Meeting is scheduled to take place during our May 16 membership meeting.  We will be voting on the Board Members for 2017-2018.  See the proposed slate in the Annual Meeting announcement below.
