President's Message Oct 2009

Hi everyone!

Halloween, it's not just for kids. It's for grown-ups like me, who never loose sight of tricks and treats and dress-up fun, no matter what our age. There's always room in your tummy for more candy corn.

September was a great quilting month! We started with our guild meeting, then the retreat, and then the GSQA circuit teacher class. I hope you enjoyed the activities as much as I did! Our guild meetings are always so inspiring! Our retreat was just plain fun!!! And the GSQA class It was so wonderful to see the class filled with enthusiastic quilters!! River City Quilt Guild members are a wonderful and talented bunch of people!!!

This year's challenge will be just excellent with plenty of participation. And, lots of folks have signed up for the Christmas Present drawing and the handmade Pin Cushion drawing, too. (If you want to participate, see me.)

Remember that this month is THE auction!! Bring cash and your checkbooks!!!! It will be a great evening and don't forget to bring the treats.

Happy Quilting!!!
