January 2023 Newsletter

Hello Quilt Members and Fans   December Meeting was very exciting . We are changing some things and have lots of new projects for you this year.

Our outgoing President Linda Walker has been very helpful and now has decided to let someone take over those duties.  I only hope I can do the Gala Quilt Guild justice as she did.  

There were 33 members and 3 visitors present which shows we are going in the community.

Pat Mistretta gave out a questionnaire regarding a possible quilt retreat this year. Several sites are being investigated and Pat will update us on that at a later date. If you have any ideas or suggestions regarding this please contact Pat. 

Our meetings have been changed to 10 am  and our workshop will begin now at 12:30.  Hope this makes a more accommodating schedule for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on January 21,2023 when we will be presenting all our quilts and bags we have been making this past year to the recipients which are Hope Harbour and Mother Mary Mission. Presentation will happen at 10am so we would really appreciate if some could arrive by 9:30 am to help us place the quilts on the pews in the sanctuary. This will be followed by our regular meeting after the presentation. 

The program for the meeting will be the members displaying their brown bag gifts from December. Anyone who received a gift please bring it to show.We have also concluded our Row by Row so please bring in the quilt tops to show. It will be exciting to see all the talent we have in the guild.

Special announcement :  Our yearly dues of $25.00  need to be paid this month.  Bring your cash or checks and give to our new Treasurer , Audrey Bergeron.

I am scheduling a committee meeting in between the workshop and presentation so all officers and members at large and committee members please attend. the meeting will begin at 11:45 in the middle room.  I appreciate your promptness and input.

Our workshop will be a Skill Builder presented by Linda Hayes. She will be showing us Fence Rails . This will start at 12:30 . Please bring your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies. Linda will follow up with more details about other  supplies to bring in an email.

Please review the attachments to this email which are : latest  roster, December minutes, and programs and workshop schedule . 

Affectionately yours my fellow quilters, Bettyanne  McGlinchey , your new president
