Happy Holidays to everyone

Just wanted to send out great wishes to you and your family for the new year, lots of exciting times ahead with a friendly and enthusiastic guild.
I found a BOM that is free still if you want to download the patterns to enjoy and work on the new year
By Snuggles Quilts 

Try to download I am not sure how long this will be up but it looks wonderful I will find more in the new year that is free as well. Maybe you can start little groups to work on them each month.

November Already

Hi Members!!!

Did you go to the York Heritage quilt show? did you get ideas for our show? did it give you incentive to work on your quilts and get some finishes done? How about the President challenge how are you doing on that? There is just so much incentive in the fall with our bright colors I hope you have some time to stitch.

We had a great time on Bee Night there were lots of members there and I had fun seeing all the Boxy bags being made Bee Night is almost like a mini retreat I hope you are able to come out for one of the nights.

I have the Newsletter and the BOM uploaded so get some tea or other beverage and enjoy.

I hope you take the time to review your webpage and give me some ideas of what you would like to see, you can use the contact on the right side of the page if there is anything you think we would be interested in no suggestion will be to small!

Any members that have a blog and would like me to post it please let me know we don't always get caught up at the meetings and this would be a great way to get incentives with your projects even the exciting BOM that we will be doing this year

I hope everyone had a great summer and that you were able to enjoy the days we had of sunshine, I know there were not many but our gardens blossomed! I also know that our stash is calling us now that the nights are getting cooler and what better way to introduce yourself to your stash than a great retreat.

Workshops, guest speakers, BOM and of course our show and share, volunteer to represent our Quilts of Valor as well as our Quilts from the Heart, many hands make light work.

I am also going to add the quilt shows for the coming year as I see them if I am missing any please email I would be glad to update so that you can come back and remind yourself of the dates. I hope to see some of you out there enjoying the shows.
