Hello Guild Members,

I hope everyone has been able to enjoy the past few days of warmer weather.  Spring is on its way!  We have a lot going on in the next couple of months.  Many thanks to Nan Miller who helped organize the countywide quilt exhibits in conjunction with our library system.  All of the libraries will have quilts on display for the public to enjoy.  We have decided to challenge our guild members with trying to visit each exhibit during the month of March.  To verify that you visited an exhibit, please post a selfie of yourself at the exhibit on our Facebook page or send it to Nan Miller, Lisa Rechkemmer or me if you are not on Facebook.  If your phone does not take photos, you can describe one of the quilts in the exhibit to verify that you visited that library.  You have until the end of March to visit all of the exhibits, which are listed at the end of the newsletter.  We hope this will be fun and encourage you to see the various exhibits.  Prizes might even be given at our April meeting to those who complete the Challenge!

We will also be donating quilts to the hospital for the first girl and boy born on National Quilting Day.  Thank you, Theresa Thacker and Maureen Flaherty, for providing quilts for these new babies this year.  What a wonderful surprise for those families!

After waiting two years, the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival is scheduled to take place this coming March 12th, from 9:00-6:00 at the Emerald Plantation.  This is a fun, family event where we have always done well with ticket sales.  If you are able to help that day, please contact me for a time slot.  Looking ahead, we have another opportunity to sell tickets for our quilt at Publick Day in Beaufort on April 23rd.  Please contact Nancy Smith about helping with that event.

Of course, our Day of Sharing is right around the corner, on March 23rd at On the Rocks in Atlantic Beach.  Please contact Cindy Moeller about helping out with this fun event.  And don’t forget to bring something to show!!

At the last guild meeting, the members who were present decided we should go ahead and reserve the Recreation Center for our gatherings over the next few months.  I’m wondering if everyone would like to return to having Drop-In on a weekly basis instead of only twice a month.  Please let me know, and I can make those arrangements. If we make that change, I will send out an email to let everyone know.

It looks like a couple of very busy months ahead for us with full calendars. These events provide our guild with many opportunities to share what we have created, our love for quilting and our desire to share both with our community.

Keep Stitching,
