A Happy and Healthy New Year to all!
As the weather starts to turn bad, remember our snow policy. If the Somers or Kennedy Catholic schools are closed or have early dismissal due to the weather, our meeting will be cancelled. We will send out an email to members notifying them of a cancellation as early as possible and post an alert on the website. Be sure to check if you are in doubt.
Quilt registration for A World of Quilts XL opens in just a few weeks. We hope to have a spectacular display of quilts for our 40th show anniversary celebration. Don’t forget, your quilt does not have to be finished to register it – it only needs to be done by quilt drop off on April 27. Daisy and Debby have been busy coming up with new ideas for the show – be sure to read their announcements of the changes for this year.
The Ugly Fabric Auction will take place at the January 15 meeting with an early preview around 6:30. Be sure to bring lots of cash and be ready to bid. I have heard they will have a great selection of fabric for the event. February will be mini-demos and your completed Challenge Quilt is due (voting will be at the March meeting).
We will be starting the nominating process for the 2019-2020 Board. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please let me know. We will need to fill the elected positions of President (no I am not serving again), Secretary, Treasurer, Communications, and Programs. A brief description of the jobs is on the website page Membership-Board dropdowns, Being on the Board is quite rewarding. It is a good way to give back to the Guild, meet members, and see what the Guild does. Please consider serving – you can also team up with a friend and be co-Chairs.
