March News

Executive Report
Another month and another meeting but still in the grips of winter. Will Spring ever come? Time to start thinking about a new executive for next year; with Spring will come elections and the welcoming bacck of our snowbirds. I wonder how warm their winter has been.
If you have decided to begin a 'Charm Quilt' then bring your pattern and/or scrap sizes you need to the meeting and we will make a list of them all so we can share scraps. I expect it could be Fall before we see these projects done. But I hear that someone has finished their UFO challenge already and it is not me!!!
If anyone has a short demonstration to share with us at meeting please let me know or just be prepared to show us.
See you Tuesday.
