May is our Annual General Meeting, but we will also have lots of time for quilty activities and socializing with fellow quilters :-). Lorna Martin will present a trunk show of some of her quilts and share her quilting journey with us. Our vendor of the month will be Pastime Pieces of Blenheim ON. Refreshments will also be served! Bring your mug for tea.

- Mystery quilt - participants will be receiving their final bag of 9 patches and instructions to finish the quilt.

- Notion of the month - write down an idea for an activity, speaker, vendor, event for next year and there will be a box to collect these ideas. You will receive a ticket for each idea shared!

Again, this is the month where the elections take place for the new exeuctive. If you have been sitting on the fence, now is the time to decide :-). Let Micki or Pauline know if you'd like to jump in and enjoy helping the guild and planning fun activites for fellow quilters to enjoy. This is your chance to make a difference and share your ideas and talents. A link to the constitution is posted on the sidebar of the blog with descriptions of each position.
Signups will also be available for a workshop taught by Becky Goldsmith who will be presenting at our guild in September. The workshop will be on the Friday after our regular meeting.
Banquet will be June 13, 2013 at Windemere Manor. There will be a murder mystery acted out at the banquet which should be a lot of fun. There will be a chance to win some great prizes, enjoy a delicious dinner and share an evening out with fellow quilters.
NEW - We are going to try a summer workshop this year if there is enough interest. The Church has been book for Saturday July 20, 2013 from 10:00 to 4:00. You can work on your own projects or on Community Quilts. There is no cost for members, but we ask that you sign up so we know how many to expect and we can remind you. Great way to keep in touch over the summer!
