Dear Fellow Quilters,
It’s interesting the things life hands you. I’m not particularly a religious person but have always thought that things happen for a reason. My life was abruptly changed when my daughter needed emergency brain surgery. While her prognosis is great, others in the hospital at the same time do not have the same prognosis. My daughter is home now involved in a very slow recovery. I certainly thank Vice President Susie Hardy for leading the April general and board meetings, so I could be with my daughter.
And now turning my thoughts toward the 2016 Quilt Show (April 30th and May 1st). It is only a short time away. There will be many beautiful quilts on display. Jeanie Ferguson is the featured quilter and will display a wide variety of her wonderful work. There are always obstacles to overcome with a production of this size. The credit for this being a success belongs to co-chairs Marjorie McConnell and Jeanne Pincha-Tulley. They have done an absolutely fantastic job finding ways to make everything work. Without all of the volunteers there couldn’t be a quilt show, so thank you so much for giving your time to make this one of our best quilt shows ever.
June Program Notes
June will bring Judy Coates Perez , Creative Alchemist, as our speaker and presenter for the June workshop. She’s a cover girl! See Machine Quilting cover on the right. She has a very creative and colorful website at www.judycoatesperez.com. Check her out before June!
With Heidi’s usual enthusiasm, here is how she described Judy’s article in Machine Quilting…at the May meeting she TOTALLY FORGOT to show [me] the quilting magazine that just came out! Judy Coates Perez is on the cover!! It's called Machine Quilting. And she has a HUGE spread inside. She later emailed me that the article is a four page spread and very impressive.
June Meeting is June 7th • Workshop is June 8th at SDA.
