Dear Guild Members,
What a delightful evening we had, listening to Audrey Esarey, of Cotton and Bourbon, sharing her journey in quilting and working on different series in her work. Thank you, Lisa Rechkemmer, for making the evening possible!
Chris Pochwat also announced the beginning of our next UFO Challenge! What a fun way to either make progress on our projects or get them finished! Let the games begin!
At the May meeting, we also started our abbreviated version for the meetings. Committee reports and reading of the minutes will not be included during the meeting, unless there is information that needs to be shared before the newsletter is scheduled to be released. Our hope is that this will keep meetings from becoming repetitive and to shorten the length of our meetings.
We recently learned that Shepherd of the Sea is now available for us to hold meetings and Drop-In. We need to decide whether we will return to the church for all of our gatherings, stay at the Rec Center on Fisher Street, or split our meetings between the two locations.
I called the church to see whether the annual $900 we were paying in the past might be adjusted, if we met there less often and also whether we could keep our library there, if we didn’t meet there at all and what that cost would be. She had to talk to the Pastor, and she and I have played phone tag since then. So, I haven’t gotten answers to those questions.
Please think about what you think would work best for you and our members, and please share any comments or concerns you might have about this with me or other Board members.
Don’t forget about getting something finished to contribute to our Quilted Baby booth at the end of July! Contact Cathy or Chris for details.
Unfortunately, I will miss the June meeting. I am going to be out of town and won’t even be able to attend via Zoom. I do plan on being at the luncheon in July and look forward to seeing everyone then!
Until then, keep stitching!
