The January meeting was full of members new and old, several visitors, and so much enthusiasm! New guild president Christine Conrad Lane and vice president Karen Haynes introduced exciting plans and challenges for the upcoming year:
“WIP It Real Good” challenge: Members are committing to finish a work in progress (WIP) each quarter—and we mean really finish, all the way through binding! Word has it there may be prizes involved. Either way, it’s proven that public commitment is a strong motivator.
Improv triangle exchange: Six 60 degree improv pieced triangles times five months equals one very exciting quilt! Our exchanges will run from February through June, with finished work revealed at the October meeting.
Guest speaker Justin Stafford of Keaton Quilts: Trunk show at the April meeting, followed by a workshop.
SEE YOU AT THE FEBRUARY MEETING! Saturday, February 2, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Hayden Center, Room 2. Stay for open sew 1-4 p.m.
