May President's Message

Last month I was asked to be the mystery guest.  Only two of you guessed it was me. Yes, I did get dressed up as the Brostered Chicken so our Young Farmer fireworks booth could get free rent.   It was very hot and I managed to get through it for my hubby’s club. 

I want to thank Charlotte Rogers and Elaine Berry for letting me share my creative journey in my quilts and my oil canvas painting.  I started painting oil on canvas in 1988 and took a break over the last 10 years to learn how to quilt.  I have recently started back to my old favorite. 

It’s that time again to be thinking about a new executive board.  My reign over the last two years is coming to an end and I am confident that one of you will take the president’s position.  Don’t let it scare you, it is not very difficult will all the help from our past presidents made my job easier. 

I am posting all the positions and you can sign up for the one you want.  If you have any questions, feel free to call past committee chairs for more information. 

It is important that we fill these positions on the executive board and committee chairs so our club in not in jeopardy and can’t continue. That could be a future reality, I am sure no one wants that.

  There is no “I” in the word TEAM.  “TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE”.

April President's message

Thanks to Charlotte Rogers and Elaine Berry for bringing Dawn Ferrier from the “Creation Station” in Buellton as our April speaker.  She was funny and very creative with so many ways to use fabrics.  

We are fast approaching time to think about new officers.  I will need three or more people to be on a nominating committee for the 2013-2014 board.  You can make it real easy for the committee if you will jump up and say you will take a position.  I have to say that being president has not been very difficult.  I have a great group of ladies making my job easy, not to mention making me look good.   If you would like to be on the nominating committee or take an office, please call me before I call you. 

See you in May, by the way, have you figured out who the mystery guest will be for the next meeting.  I think this will be interesting.

Until the next time we meet, happy sewing.
