I would like to thank the Guild members for their confidence in me to lead our group into the next decade. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your President in 2019. I can’t wait to work with my fellow board members. I am happy to be part of a group that is so friendly, caring and giving. My hope this year is that we have fun while learning about quilting and learning about each other.
Half of our year is already filled with activities, from Wednesday Ladies and our Baby Quilt Relay, making placemats, pillowcases, our Bunco and our Opportunity Quilt Fundraisers. I would especially like to acknowledge and thank Jan Crum for her tireless participation in the Wednesday Ladies. Jan makes a hand crocheted hat to go with every blanket that is donated to Sutter Hospital, Kaiser and the Veteran’s Home. Whenever there is a need our members are right there ready to help.
We have classes and Open Sew on the 3rd Saturday and sewing activities after our General Meeting on the 1st Saturday every month. And I can’t wait to sleep on an air mattress again this year during our Over-Nighter. Don’t forget the food, our Guild has some of the best cooks and bakers around.
Every one of our members has a story to tell and I encourage each of you to get to know each other and learn something new about our members.I look forward to a fun, productive year and there is no one I would rather spend it with than all of you.
2019 President, Vallejo Piecemakers
