President's Message - March 2014

There is much to do, and see, in quilting in our region this month, assuming the weather cooperates!  River City's retreat is just one of many getaways, as well as the GSQA auction and quilt show providing road trip opportunities.  And one or two new guilds in the area will add to a range of monthly activities throughout the year. 

Our program for March will be presented by Michael Young.  He'll share his ideas and techniques for using templates.  It will be a nice counterpoint to Judy Niemeyer's visit in April showcasing her use of paper foundation piecing.  Activities on March 6th include the sale of the Split Nine Patch lotto block, the Quilt in a Box reveal, and the start of the Mystery Quilt challenge for 2014.  

As we enjoy all that quilting offers beyond a quilt at the end of the process, let's continue to build on those connections that our craft allows us to make through friendships and community service.  

See you soon,
