What an inspirational weekend we had at this year’s retreat. Kudos galore to Sue Magyar and Kathleen Barkley and all the ladies from Seward who worked hard to make lovely table runners for each of us to take home as a gift. They collected wonderful door prizes for each of us, as well. Dana Lewis came all the way from Missouri to bring us a beautiful Mystery Quilt that she designed. Most were finished in time for a group show-n-share on Sunday. Each was different, all were impressive. A highlight for me was the chance to visit with some of the nine or ten members who had never attended a retreat before. Imagine, new table runners, a new quilt top and best of all, new friends!
The retreat was just the opening of an exciting year’s worth of activities available to us in 2017. On April 1st, barely a month away, we will be holding our semi-annual membership meeting. As always, there will be a brief business meeting to bring you up to date on finances, committee reports and such. Don’t forget to bring your finished 2017 Challenge Quilt based on the theme “Chemistry” and any other new projects for show-n-share. You won’t want to miss the Education Committee’s report on all the exciting classes lined up for the year. There are planned visits from three renowned quilters this summer. Signup sheets will fill up fast. Check out the website for details on dates.
There are only a few more weeks before spring and summer activities will start invading our quiet quilting time. Don’t waste a moment of enjoyment. See you April 1st.
