Great Night at Guild

Another great Guild meeting.  We had a brief business meeting where the new Executive Board was installed (except for Mary Jane Loya, President, who will be installed next month).  Thanks to Rita for taking over for one more month.  Our show, which was our new Executive Committee Members trunk show and quilt history was fun and very interesting.  It started with our new Vice President, Linda Carter, who told us how she got started (using cardboard templates - YUK, to what she's working on now.  Bernita Garcia gave us a history on her sewing career and her life in general.  She gives most of her quilts away therefore not many to show for her quilting history.  She did end her talk with her latest curved table runners (sorry - photo came out so blurry you couldn't even see it).  Next came Margaret Davis.  She was witty and funny and did show us some of her older stuff and some of her newer finished stuff.  Apparently she has a finishing problem.  It was great to get to know you ladies better.  Thanks for sharing with us your history.

Show and tell was spectacular again last night.  The talent in our guild just amazes me.  Please check our show and tell page to see what was shown if you weren't able to make it.  Of course, remember, pictures never do the quilts justice but you will get an idea.

Thanks also everyone who came ready to pay your dues.  We already have 51 members paid of which 8 are new members.  If you weren't able to make it to the meeting, it's not too late to pay your dues.  We have one more month before we start printing the roster.  So next month make sure to come to the membership table to sign up.  So many benefits for joining.  Welcome to our new members as well.  I didn't get the new members packets to you last night but look forward to getting it next month.  Also, we ran out of membership cards and Beverly's coupons.  If you didn't get yours last night, I will also have those ready for you next month.  If you aren't able to make the meeting but still want to be part of the guild, just mail your dues with a note of all your pertinent information to the guilds P.O. Box.  Common Threads Quilt Guild  P.O. Box 488  Lemoore, CA 93245-0488  Attn:  Membership
