What a fun ride it has been.
In the past two years we have been forced to reinvent the guild- moving “seamlessly” from in person to online meetings due to the pandemic. We have refocused on the three guiding values of the guild: charity, learning and fellowship. We have successfully pulled off a virtual retreat, created in person pop-up events, and expanded opportunities to collaborate with others through Friday Night Socials and online bees.
As we start to get back to our new “normal”, the guild is in a great position for the future. We have perfected a hybrid meeting style, allowing us to meet the needs of our virtual and in person members. We are planning a comeback of our Festival of Quilts- our guild quilt show- in 2023. We have a year full of learning opportunities through programs and workshops. We are hosting a block of the month quilt along. And, coming in February we will be again hosting a virtual retreat.
Thank you for all of your ongoing support in keeping the guild going. It has truly been a pleasure leading you over the past couple years- and I look forward to what is to come!!!
