Next Meeting: Thursday, April 16th, 7PM

LFQG welcomes this month's guest speaker: Krystin McCoy from Melon Patch Quilts, an award winning machine quilter who recently travelled to Africa to teach quilting in South Africa.

Reminders:

This month's secret notion is a 6 inch square piece of floral fabric for Lily's quilt. Anyone who brings a piece of fabric will receive a ticket for the fat quarter draw! Tickets will be given to those who wear their name tag and/or chatelaine.

Return Library Books!

Postcard Exchange!

Show and Share!

Looking for donations for door prizes for the June banquet, preferably something quilty, a pattern or a notion, etc, re-gift if necessary!

Call for nominations to the Executive for Sept 2009-June 2010. If you would like to volunteer to be on the executive, feel free to contact Rose, or if you know someone who you think would do a great job, please bring their name forward to Rose. If you have been a member for awhile but have never been on the executive, now is your chance...Although the executive works very hard to coordinate all the events, no one member does it all, it is very much a collaborative atmosphere and great fun, but it is not fair to any one volunteer if they become stuck in the same job year after year, because no one volunteers for that position. A healthy executive is one where there is a regular turn over of volunteers to bring new ideas and a fresh perspective, a balance of experienced and newer members will keep it running smoothly. We welcome all nominations!

May 2, President's Workshop, Friendship Table Runner, cost $5.
