Happy October ACQ members,
Quilters are so generous, as we all know. Nancy Conklin is helping me with the 3 t-shirt quilts made from my friend’s late husband’s shirts, that we hope to have in the mail around Halloween. It is so much fun to have a sewing partner in the room, I almost forgot what it is like to sew and talk. The Zoom sewing Bees help to fill that void and I hope you have dialed in and participated in our meetups or with others online if you can’t meet in person.
Are you all still sewing and crafting away while we continue to shelter at home. I finally have some time to make those Halloween table runners and candle rugs. Not like I need to buy any fabric…I just go shopping in my Stash. That however, is not what my husband calls it.
I hope many of you came out for the “Drive Through” in September. I have noticed the generosity of our Guild members at these two events. And I have seen the membership step up to making masks. I think a few of you went above and beyond on the mask making, but I know they have all been appreciated. The Board send all of you a very heartfelt THANK YOU.
In September you voted in a new slate of Officers, but we are still in need of a VP for Membership. So please look in your heart and see if you can carve out some time to support the Guild. Your new officers are brimming with ideas for next year and they have come up with some very exciting ideas for 2021.
Little did we all know that voting in a Communication officer last year would become so critical in 2020. June Dudley and Carole Fronk have done so much to keep you engaged and informed this year. Many of you may not realize that other guilds have been asking their advice on how to do what they do for you every month. They have kept us on the cutting edge of technology and have striven so hard to try and keep everyone engaged.
Keep smiling and sewing.
