President's Message - November 2012

Hello Guild Friends,

What a wonderful program is planned for your enjoyment. Del Horan, former RC guild president, will discuss her love for wool applique and its techniques and will teach a class on Saturday, Nov. 10th. Many of you were members back in 1990's and will have a chance to get reacquainted with Del. JoPaula was not a member of RC then, but her children were enrolled in the University Presbyterian Nursery School where Del was a teacher.

Our meeting should also be great with many Mystery Quilts to admire. The Mystery Quilts will be hung for us all to see and we'll vote for our favorites. I also had a chance to see one of the Christmas quilt tops and it is just beautiful. According to Elena, there will be numerous tops to win in December. You may also want to be working on your hand-made item for the Christmas Ornament Exchange.

To all my friends who are attending the Houston Show, I hope you have a great time. We want to see and hear about it at the meeting. Please show us any new gadgets or fabrics you buy while there. I may be able to go next year and join the fun.

I guess you have been watching that big storm just like me. I've called my friends in New York and they are as ready as they will ever be. I am praying for those affected by this harsh winter storm.

I want to thank all the ladies who worked on the auction, especially Maureen and Jackie. What a great job our two novices did last month! They were very brave to step up like that and I'll always appreciate them. I am so blessed to be a part of this guild! I hope to have a representative from the Parker House to accept the donation. Thanks again to all of you who helped and purchased items.

See you soon, Cynthia

p.s. Remember, November meeting is on the 2nd Thursday of the month rather than the 1st.
