President's Message - November 2014

As the mornings become cooler, I am prompted to change the quilts that decorate my home. The quilts going up feature warmer colors than the cool-colors artwork now on the walls. We can all have one last look at a sea-inspired palette as we vote on the Mystery Quilt Challenge on November 6th.  

And Roxanne Brown, the new Louisiana representative for Quilts of Valor, will join us to share the history, and future, of this organization.  The Giving Quilt is sponsoring Block by Block for QOV during QOV’s National Sew Day on February 7, 2015 so come hear about this group that has organized the distribution of over 106,000 quilts to recognize the service of our veterans.  

See you soon, 

the Bring list

  • items for the Birthday table 
  • your Mystery Quilt top 
  • $$ to sign up for the catered Christmas Party Dinner 
  • quilts and things to share at Show and Tell  
  • wear your fiber Name Tag, and participate in FQ lotto

President's Message - October 2014

I'm looking forward to getting back to our routine, meeting-wise.  Although Gail Garber (cancellation) will not be at the guild for a lecture or classes, I'm sure we'll find plenty to do with updates from committees and sharing our regular activities that have been set aside over the past three months.  After Show and Tell and the break, we'll finish the meeting with quilters' bingo and a nice selection of prizes.

 And yes, it's time to plan for classes for next year.  Gaye will outline what's available from Judy Holley in January and what we can choose from the class offerings in July from Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts.

"River City begins with you." 
See you soon,
