Out With The Old …

The member formally knows as ‘President’, Jodi Lea Greenfield, uses the microphone for the last time in an ‘official’ capacity. After Installing each officer,  she installed Mary Sue Budrow as President of the Independence Hall Quilters.

Then, Jodi presented the new President with items she would need while serving her term. The purple (of course!), “Binder of the President” that includes a list of responsibilities, organizational information, and a “How to” document or two.

The valuable correspondence (CYA) ledger, to document all forms of communication to the Guild. And then – the big pink ring of Hall keys, and the PO Box key were turned over to Mary Sue.

As a token of congrats & good luck, a small bag containing a pack of tissues, bottle of Excedrin Migraine, and a purse sized container of Tums.  Just in case.

… In With the New

After our President Elect and her Board, became installed into their respective office’s, Mary Sue took the microphone and continued the meeting without hesitation. The 2019 Board members are now officially official!

The day already had a full schedule, then we had to squeeze in the important activities from the meeting Jan 7th, which did not happen, due to snow. Members living in Arnold & Dorrington, saw inches upon inches of snow. While members in neighboring Avery, Murphys, Angels Camp and further down the “hill”, thought we were crazy because they were only being rained on.

A new storm is hitting as I write this. It promises many feet of snow and high winds, up in high elevations, like 6,000 ft and above. Arnold is forecast to get snow tomorrow, and since we are getting high winds today, I’m starting to believe it.

The weather is perfect for quilting. As soon as I can put away my lap-top, I will prepare the fabrics I need for class Monday, and maybe I can get to do some hand-quilting on my pretty lavender quilt -OR- I could take a nap instead of sleep-typing on a blog post.  You know, ssssssssssssss ssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssss sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss sssssssssssssssssssssssssssss – like that.

It’s Quilt Faire Eve!

‘Twas the Night Before Quilt Faire,
and all through the place,
not an entry was stirring,
Not even a vase.

The quilts, they were hung,
on the frames, with great care,
in the hope that admirers
soon would be there.

The quilters were nestled all snug in their beds.
But no visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads,
They were so tuckered out,
They slept like the dead.

One heck of a week,
working hard, getting ready.
Things going so wrong,
and chaos aplenty!

It happens each year,
to our planners dismay,
but it always works out,
by opening day.

See for yourself tomorrow (or this weekend),
Vote on your favorites and do us a favor
We love sewing and quilting,
but what’s even better?

Sharing our handiwork,
and telling their stories.
So exciting to see them
displayed in their glory!
