March News

Executive News
Hi everyone
   It seems like 2012 is zooming by. March already! Which month is supposed to go out like and lamb and which one come in like a lion? Or is it vice versa? It would be wonderful if Mother Nature would bring spring now.
   There's not a lot going on Guild-wise during March. That will make a nice bit of rest before the West Kootenay Quilt Conference in April.
   March 6th is Liz's hand quilting class starting at 9 am. The class is open to everyone. See the blog under "Beginner Quilt Lessons" for what to bring.
   March 13th is our monthly business meeting at 7 pm. Attendance has been low the past few months so please try to be there. So far the agenda is light. The usual reports plus an update on the WKQC, first thoughts on the raffle quilt (Lesley) and quilt show (Kim and Rhonda P) from our new chairpeople, year-end windup ... that kind of thing. Let me know if you'd like anything discussed at the meeting.
   March 27th is the monthly in-guild starting at 9 am. Irene has recruited Lucille to teach something but won't spill the beans yet on what it is!
   Daytimes on March 13, 20 and 27 are wide open at this point in time. Bring a project, your lunch and enjoy a day out. It's been quite a while since we've seen some of you and we miss you.
March Events
