September Dinner

In September we had our annual dinner and installation of officers.     
This year’s officers are:
President – Marilyn Deverell 
President Elect – Cheryl Zombo (revised)
Treasure – Lyn Compau
Secretary – Karri Howe
Correspondence Secretary – Bonnie Streeter
Directors – Sharon Bannister, Mary Jane Erwin & Delores Ray

Our previous President, Janet Rochefort, holds up one of the many beautiful flower quilt blocks she received as tokens of our thanks.

We all enjoyed White’s Chicken for dinner.  Not to mention all the fabulous desserts brought in.  No one walked away hungry that night.

Jeanne McGill from Hospice stopped by to thank the Guild for all of the quilts that have been made and donated to Hospice.  A total of 267 have been donated since we started back in July 2007.  She was also asking for us to track our “volunteer” hours we spent in making the quilts.  If anyone has questions they need to talk to Karen Davis for more details on how this can be done.

Many of our ladies enjoyed the workshop on August 30, 2011 with Dan Burke using paper foundation.  They had quite a nice collection of table runners to show us!

In November, our guest speaker  Sherrie Jaqua will be presenting a lecture and trunk show on Asymmetrical Block Quilts.  During the day she will be teaching a workshop at Hankerd Inn featuring the “Bouquet” block shown above.   Be sure to get with Mary Jane Erwin if you are interested in attending the workshop.
