The Quilt Show is a little over two months away. I hope you are hard at work making those beautiful quilts to hang in the show. We have a great group of committee volunteers who are hard at work to put together a fantastic 30th anniversary show! We are in need of donations for the raffle baskets as well as the silent auction. Please consider donating some fabric or quilting supplies or a completed quilt or wall hanging to these two committees. We are also in need of volunteers to work the show. We will be at the March Mixer with sign-up sheets for all the different areas that will need your help. Thank you, in advance, for volunteering your time. We cannot put the show on without you!

The first day of spring is right around the corner! While we are still waiting for more winter rains, March 20 will soon be here, hopefully bringing many spring showers. That is not a known; we do know for sure there is much happening in the Guild!
Our March 4 meeting is the second annual "Mixer." Like last year it promises to be a lot of fun and also provide information about the Guild doings, enjoying the challenge quilts and getting to know each other better. Bring a friend as this is the meeting that is geared for Guild information, activities and social interaction. There are also great refreshments provided by the Board, and all the recipes are included in our soon to be published cookbook (available at the meeting for viewing proof version and pre-ordering).
