Message from the President - March 2017


How glorious it is to live in Louisiana in Springtime, like God's mercy reached down and gave us a kiss and a blessing, all at once.  Peace be with you all.

First, The Giving Quilt Show was very well attended by many of our friends and local quilters. Their remarks were quite complimentary of the show's composition and its quilts.  Some remarks were that the quilting and workmanship on the quilts were more complex and very interesting.  The Quilts of Valor (QOV) presentation was very touching as always.  My thanks to all of you who contributed your time and talent to the show.

There will be other QOV presentation opportunities closer to Memorial Day in May or Veterans Day in November.  Contact me if you have a veteran to honor.

With the presentation at the meeting, let's narrow our choices for circuit teachers and  plan some dates/classes.

On Second Saturday Sew Day- March 11th - BR Modern Quilt Guild is the sponsor hosting the sew-in date this time along with Remember Me and our guild.  Jan Bourgeois of Ryan's Case for Smiles org. will be there with pillowcase kits to sew (the kits are free).  Come join the fun to make pillowcases or just bring a project to work on.  Good fellowship.  More details are in the newsletter.

I'll tell you about the Feb. 20-22 retreat.  It was great fun. You should have been there.

Thanks to our refreshment ladies for this month: Mary Wolf, Billece Morrison, and Frances Jones.

SEW, dear ones, be inspired, as I am by your creativity and drive,
