We had a wonderful December meeting. 20 members attended to swap blocks and play Quilto. Thank you Jen Burke for all your planning and hard work. Our January program will be a collage quilter. I look forward to hearing this speaker. But rest assured, if there is tiny pieces, you won’t see me doing it. I do have size limits.
Thank you Maureen for developing a new website for us. It is fresh, colorful and inviting. Maureen would like input from others as to website content. Please call or email her.
Sew Along deadline: quilt is due by February 8th. Just the top needs to be completed. Please send pictures to email@example.com.
Challenge quilt deadline: This has been moved to June 14th in hopes that we will be meeting in person.
2020 is coming to a close and I am sure everyone is thankful for that. I hope 2021 will allow us to meet in person, and bring everyone better times.
Programs - Jen Burke
As a reminder, Lynn has asked us to invite a friend to each of these programs if we can!
Thank you all who participated in Quilto. It was so much fun! Congrats to Angela and her Darth Vader sweater who won the ugly sweater contest!
In January, we will have Emily Taylor demonstrate and lecture about collage quilts. Please join us! Check out her website here, our names are in lights! Collage Quilter
For February, I’m looking for people to give demos. Sign up, it’s a great way to help your fellow quilters and learn some things. We’ll give you all a pass for using “the zoom”.

We would like to welcome Ellen Lance back to our guild. She has been missed.
Corresponding Secretary - Maureen Carlson
While I personally have not talked with Suzanne Stiverson, I have heard from someone who has and Suzanne continues her recovery from the October 30th major surgery slowly but surely. The guild has sent her flowers which hopefully she can enjoy through the holidays. I'm sure she would enjoy receiving cards of encouragement from guild members to help her with her long recovery journey.
