Message from the President
I just came back from the Mancusso Quilt show in Savannah. What a terrific exhibit of quilts. They really put on a fine event. Hopefully, they will repeat it again next year. There were so many quilt activities in March that it feels good to stop and catch up with projects in my sewing studio. On the drive back from Savannah to Rome I was inspired by the lovely color palette that Mother Nature provides us with; soft tender yellow green leaves, forsythia yellow, pinky-fuchsia azaleas and red buds. I am ready to dig into my stash and make a new table runner for spring.
We are gearing up for another great retreat and convention in August. Registration forms for SewFest 2014 are beginning to come in. Space is limited so get yours in soon.
With the milder weather now is a good time to get out and about and follow the new Barn Quilts trails. There are several in Georgia. The American Quilt Trail Movement started in Ohio but has now expanded into a network of over one hundred and forty trails across the country. Check out the Barn Quilt Info.
We are still in need of a volunteer to cover our Silver Stitchers interviews. We also are looking to fill two positions on the board at our election in August. If you are interested or have someone to nominate for President-Elect or Secretary, please let me know.
