President's Message Dec 2009

Hi Everyone!

Merry Christmas!!! How can I be typing those words? Where has this year gone? Nonetheless, our Christmas Party is just a few days away -- December 3. It promises to be a great time for all.! Don't forget your wrapped pincushions and gifts.

A very big thank you to all the participants in our scrap challenge! Your response was wonderful. The talent and creativity of our members continues to be extraordinary!

The board and I would also like to thank you for your great support for our "gift" in the Birthday Raffle - the Christmas Package quilt. Several people have asked the name/location of the pattern -- It is from Quiltmaker Magazine -- the November/December 2008 issue -- "It's a Wrap".

I also want to thank you, all the membership, who contribute so much to our guild. Your talents and efforts not only make our guild a wonderful group, but you also help to preserve the art of quiltmaking for future generations. Your support is greatly appreciated.

I want to encourage each of you to get involved with the guild in any way you can. I sincerely appreciate all o fyou who have volunteered to serve on committees next year. The guild still needs a few more people to "raise their hands". (please check the website under committees) Your contributions to the guild are invaluable, not only to the guild, but to yourself. You will find yourself smiling and havnig fun in the new year as an active participant in River City Quilt Guild!

Happy Quilting in the New Year!
