President's Message - March 2013

I hope you all have been working on quilting projects, especially during the damp and cold weather we’ve been having. My main quilting project has been re-organizing my stash   AGAIN. I have found so much fabric that I didn’t know I had! I can vaguely remember where I purchased it or when? Don't even ask 'what it was for?'  Has this ever happened to you??

The March meeting will bring us the Giving Quilt Challenge to view and vote, the first set of Lotto Blocks, (Strings on Foundation), and the Fabric Swap Sign up, among other items on the agenda. I am particularly looking forward to Show and Tell. Please bring all the news about Seminar, what classes you took, and show us your projects.   We want to see what you did and hear about the new techniques you learned and your overall experience.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the March meeting at St. Margaret's Church

Keep quilting!
