Updated blog finally

Sorry it took so long to update.  Been a little busy at work and then when I get home I just want to sew.  :)  I have a 3 days weekend so I don't have an excuse this month.

Our President Kristin was unable to be at the meeting in May so Charlotte the VP took control and also wrote the president's message.  here it is.

The May meeting was very busy. So many members stepped up to take offices or chair a position that we are ready to start working on the 2015/2016 year. Thank you to each one of you for helping make the guild a success. Mary Jane Loya encouraged members to work on items for the October Boutique. This is our main fundraiser for the year. Work on those bags, placemats, baby items, crayon bags, and any item you think will sell. This is a fun event. Great show and tell, did you get your entry for the Kings County Fair completed? Janice Minyard was our guest speaker. The journey through her quilting life was fun. I always thought Janice only did art quilts. Her traditional quilts are amazing and her quilting beautiful. June brings us a national teacher, Sue Garman. We are lucky to get Sue, she will be teaching next year at Asilomar, a class you can take for only $1500. The good news is you can take a class with Sue next month for only $40. Call Barbara Sindlinger and get signed up.

Our boutique is October 10th which is about 135 days away. I know that seems like a long time, but it will be here before you know it. Some of our members at last meeting brought what they have made to show and tell. I strongly recommend we do this every month so others can see what is being made.
See you at the June 4th meeting and until then happy sewing.
Thanks and sew, sew, sew. Mary Jane Loya
