Next Meeting - Thursday March 10, 2011 7:00 p.m.

The next meeting of the London Friendship Quilt Guild will be held on Thursday, March 10, 2011 @ 7:00 at St. George's Presbyterian Church. Our speaker this month will be Susan Purney Mark and we look forward to her trunk show "Show me Your Fat Quarters".

Shattered Angles Workshop will be held the next day, Friday, March 11, 2011 @ 9:00 a.m. This workshop uses up some of your stash of fat quarters (or you can shop for more fabric if you really want!!). There is still room in the workshop and it is open for non members of the guild as well. Email for details if you would like to join us @ lfqguild@yahoo.ca as soon as possible. Click here for more details on the workshop.

The Constitution Committee presented a revised constitution to the executive last week. Copies of the proposed changes will be distributed at the March meeting. Please read the amendments carefully and bring input for discussion at the April meeting. We will vote on it at the May Annual General Meeting.

Consider volunteering your name for the executive of your guild! It is a great way to get to know more people in the guild and you have a wonderful chance to have input and share your ideas. The Constitution Committee looked at each of the positions on the executive and organized the duties to reflect each task and created two new positions to distribute the work load more evenly. Members on the executive will also offer their help to get you started in the fall. Talk to those who are doing the job you may be interested in to find out what is involved. Many hands make light work and this can be very enjoyable work if we all share the load.

Secret Notion - Bring 1 or more 6 1/2" squares of novelty prints to donate to the Kid's Quilts program.
