Letter From The President:

Where has the year gone?  Winter seems to have snuck in a bit early to make up for our mild fall. Brrrr!  What perfect weather for getting some quilting projects done!  It’s time to snuggle up with our projects, watch some holiday specials, spend quality moments with our families and friends, and prepare ourselves for next year’s quilting adventures.

  I don’t know about you, but this year’s resolution to finish more projects than I started really wasn’t the best thought out plan. I might just spend the next few weeks coming up with a more creative way to justify my stash and my passion for trying new techniques. After all, it’s all about the journey and not the destination!

  If you haven’t participated in a CBQ mini-retreat, please consider it.  The Senior Center is only a hop away, if you forget something JoAnns, Hancocks, and G-Street are not too far away…well, home isn’t too far either.   Besides, quilters are the most generous people I’ve met and at these instructional gatherings sharing fabric, ideas, and notions just adds sparkle and pizzazz to our projects.

  Remember, our December meeting is a week earlier than normal.  I’m looking forward to seeing all of those Red & Green Holiday Quilts. I’ll enjoy seeing them even if they aren’t red and green.  Just think, if you have your quilt done to share at the meeting, that’s one less thing to be binding on the evening before the big day!

 And one last thought.  This is the perfect month to share your warmth with others.  Why not start that caring quilt project you’ve been thinking about? Have a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
