Happy October!
It is with great sadness that we greet this month with the passing of our dear friend and member Willa Reams.  We will miss Willa a great deal.
Our October 12th evening meeting will begin at seven sharp with a trunk show by a guest from Vernon as she would like to drive home that night.  Not a lot of business stuff to do.  Maybe bring a friend and don't forget your show and tells.
If anyone has come across an interesting technique that you could share (or you want shared) in 5-10 minutes at our Nov. "round robin techy night", let me know.
Spokane quilt show is Oct. 15,16,&17  anyone one interested in doing a day trip to Spokane? Maybe we can get a group together, carpool and save gas.
Castlegar quilt show is Oct 22 & 23rd same goes for Castlegar.
The Vernon show was very good.  Lots of very beautiful quilts.
