May 2016 Meeting Highlights

We had a very busy May guild day and it was so nice to see so many members out at 9am!   We had 4 sewing stations set up in no time and we got right to work piecing 4 Quilt of Valour quilts.    We even had enough time to start a 5th Mahjongg quilt that we will donate to the Syrian Family that might be coming to our community! Then we finished up a few quilt tops by adding the borders as well as pin based a few baby quilts. I was an extremely productive day!  Now I'm busy planning a few more project for us to work on in June, you'll be getting my email about that before the next meeting.

We will be having our Beginner Classes on Saturday, June 11 and June 18th.  We have 17 quilters signed up and I'm really looking forward to teaching this class.

We had our guild executive elections this month and the results are:
Past President - Sheri McPhee
President - Kathy Schwartz
Vice President - Audrey Neufeld
Secretary - Lynn Fischer
Treasurer - Phyl Broughton

We will be having an Programs Committee meeting at 5pm at our June meeting and all are welcome to come and share your ideas.

The program for the evening was our newest comfort block called the Friendship Star and we also demonstrated the Bloc-Loc ruler.  We are asking members to make two blocks using one Black and White print for the background and a bright colored fabric for the star.  Instructions will be available again at the June meeting.

It was a great Show and Tell!
