I think everyone can agree that the auction was a complete success. Our thanks go to Jo Doherty and all of her elves for a job well done. $3,115 worth to be exact Joyce will have the break down by department.
The board is excited to unveil the 2011 version of The Board Quilt, actually 2 quilts for your viewing pleasure. Tickets for the drawing at the Nov. meeting will be on sale for $5 each. Remember you must be a RCQG member to purchase the tickets! It is the board's "thank you" quilt to all our members.
In fact, I was inspired by The Board Quilt to purchase some beautiful batiks at Magrieta's Quilt Shop in St. Augustine, FL. Not like I needed an excuse to buy batiks, for that matter, but I do think you will love the board quilt as much as we do ; )
Special congratulations to Cynthia McGee, president, and Debbie Hulett, vice president, for stepping up and volunteering to serve as officers. We know 2012 will be a great year.
Lastly, so many thanks to all of you for making my year as your guild president a pleasant one. I feel like I'm leaving the guild in great hands and look forward to taking a breather and sitting in the bleachers next year. Good luck to all of you.
Remember to see Valerie Barth about the Christmas Party. She and her elves have planned a great event.
Until next time, keep those machines humming.
