April 2018


Greetings, Quilters!

It’s time for our first Challenge REVEAL and I’m so excited to see what everyone did to transform the Holice Turnbow Panel From You-Know-Where into something magical! So bring those re-imagined pieces and show us what you did! Holice’s guidelines were to make a top roughly 45” x 60”, the unfinished top is fine! Next up, in May, is the Reveal for the Architectural Challenge, and in June is the Whisper Challenge unveiling.

Please note that the June meeting will be the second Sunday, not the third, and we’ll be having a finger food potluck in the lower level of the Charlton Baptist Church. Our theme is “Red, White, and Blue” in honor of Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Glorious Fourth, so bring your red, white and blue quilts to show! There won’t be a Cornerstone Collectibles table in June, but Carol and Joanne are putting together great stuff for a silent auction! And look for the May “Blowout Sale” at Cornerstone Collectibles next month!

The April meeting is when we start membership renewals for the coming year. In this newsletter is the renewal form. If you haven’t renewed already (and thanks go out to those who have!), please fill out the form to bring, along with the dues, to the April meeting, or mail it to Gaye Kenyon. Anything that we can do to help Gaye and her team is most welcome. Also, please remember that the dues are now $30.00, having been voted on and approved at the March meeting.

Karen Murphy is stepping down as our Library Director, and we need someone to replace her if the lending library of DVD’s is to continue. Send an email to me or anyone on the Board if you can take this over. If you have DVD’s checked out, please return them no later than the May meeting. If no one is willing to take on the Library position, then we will likely discontinue that and place the DVD’s in the June silent auction.

Lastly, the Board is putting together a Questionnaire which we hope will let us know what you want in the coming year. The current plan is to send it out in May. Lots has happened in the quilting world, in general, over the last two decades, and we want to keep up with the times. This is YOUR guild, so give us your input!

Susan Burns, President
