It is my great pleasure to return to the position of President of Cornerstone Quilters! My last tenure ended in 2005, hard to believe the time has gone by so quickly. My hair is grayer and the wrinkles have multiplied, but one thing that has not changed is the importance of the Guild in my life and, I’m sure, in yours. We share our combined love of the craft of quilting, whether traditional or modern, king size or miniature or somewhere in between, as well as the many great friendships and memories which have grown out of that shared passion. It’s all good!! We have a wonderful year planned thanks to the combined efforts of so many people who work tirelessly on the Guild’s behalf to meet our members’ needs. We welcome everyone’s suggestions and participation to keep our Guild going strong not only for this year but also in the years to come.
Our September speaker will be Patty Sawyer, whose presentation title is “Right Place Right Time”. What could be better to start off our Guild year?! And please check out the Workshop offerings coming up. We’ll be holding workshops at the Charlton Library going forward, space is limited so don’t be shy about signing up to hold your spot! Our Outreach group continues to provide quilts of all sizes to those in need in our extended community, and they always need help so please pitch in there if you’re able. Even a few hours a month makes a difference. There are some interesting challenges in store to get your fabric imagination humming, as well. Don’t forget to share any quilting-related items you may have decided to “re-home” with our Dollar Table (Now renamed – Cornerstone Collectibles). Your discard could be someone else’s treasure!
Best wishes for another great Quilting Year for Cornerstone Quilters!
Susan Burns, President
