Message from the President
The cold February weather was been great for quilters. We have quilts to keep us warm and plenty of fabric in our stash to make more.
We appreciate all of you who have mailed in their renewals for this year. If you haven’t mailed yours in, it is not too late. You can find the form here.
National Quilt Day is March 21, 2015. There are several upcoming quilting events in March – Bulloch Hall Quilt Show, Quiltfest Destination Savannah, Sewing and Quilt-ing Expo at the Gwinnett Civic Center, and the Cross-roads Quilt Guild Show in Perry. Please check the events page for events in your area.
The Georgia Quilt Council Sewfest and Retreat is August 13 – 15, 2015 at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield, GA. Registrations will be accepted for members of the GQC first which is another reason to get your member-ship registration in now!
I have been contacted by Cate Kitchen, the Cultural Arts/Downtown Manager for the City of Norcross asking for exhibitors. Last year the Brown Sugar Stitchers Guild was featured. Also, Adela Raffa with Hospice Advantage located in Kennesaw has asked for lap quilts for Alzheimer’s patients. If you or your guild would be interested in either of these projects, please contact me, and I will forward their contact information.
The GQC will have several opportunities for volunteers next year. The open positions will be president-elect, treasurer, Silver Stitchers and newsletter editor. We have a great board and would love to have you join us.
Stay warm, keep stitching,
Frances Cranford, President
