January Meeting Recap

We had a great kick off for 2017 at our first meeting of the year!

First we covered some updates regarding our major project of a gallery art show for the summer of 2018. Members have received info about this! If you are a member and want to be involved, reach out to Ann S or Agnes S.

We also introduced 2017's new board-

Karen Oyerly

Vice President
Debbie Wanzer

Leslie Lamb

Paula Melendy

Membership Coordinator
Becca Pool

Communications Coordinator
Ann White

Programs Coordinator
Beth Furnish

Get to know your board and find out how you can get involved! We are currently looking for people interested in helping with communications (social media), hospitality (greeting members and visitors at meetings) and charity projects.

Debbie W introduced a great new idea she had for involvement- a bi-monthly block lottery. Find out all this information on this page. 


Members brought some great projects to show off!

Melissa brought her flying geese quilt, which was so large it was hard to hold up properly! She even used solids that she has received at fabric swaps with the guild through the years. Beautiful!

Jennifer made an awesome tablet/laptop case for her friend. How lucky to receive such a great gift!

Jana made a simple but stunning large sawtooth star quilt. And the quilting is just breathtaking!  Be sure to enlarge the picture to see it properly.

Robert made fun gifts for his sisters this year- cactus pincushions!

Vicki made a modern table runner as part of a challenge with her small group. Simple and striking!

Agnes used different African dyed fabrics to make this gorgeous variation on a drunkard's path. The quilting is beautifully integrated!

Sarah is making mini quilts as part of monthly quilt diaries. I love this idea!

Ann W finished the president's challenge from last year- a variation of Alison Glass' Tessellation pattern.

We started off the year off right! If you've ever thought of joining our guild, come visit one of our  meetings! Next meeting is February 13 at 6:30 at the Northwest Library. Info is also in the blog sidebar.
