From the President’s Desk…
Once again I am out of town on meeting night. Thank you Sylvia for taking over for me. This time I am in Maine visiting grandkids and spending time with them camping. Because their season is later than New York, I was able to pick peas and strawberries. Also it is raspberry season so I am enjoying that. Berries are always a favorite of mine and picking them is exciting for me.
This is an exciting time for our guild with the exhibit coming soon. It is also a busy time for Kate and the committee.
The three projects I am working on this summer are appliqué. That seems to be the patterns that has caught my interest recently. What have you been working this summer?
We are located in Wellsboro, PA, but our members come from far and near to attend meetings and workshops.
Our guild is committed to quilting, with monthly meetings that include a program, two open sewing settings, workshops, outreach projects, and a National Speaker each year. The bi-annual exhibit, held at the Gmeiner Art & Culture Center, in Wellsboro PA, has always been a beautiful addition to the art exhibits at the gallery. Although the guild is relatively new, established in 1998, it has grown rapidly to include 140 members.
