Quilt Guild Celebrates 40 Years

The Independence Hall Quilters Guild has been meeting, sewing, and enjoying each others company for 40 years. A detailed history of our guild is found on the Bicentennial Quilt page.

Our June 6 meeting was attended by most of our members and all the tables were full!  Our youngest and the oldest member were present and happy to take a photo together!

The rest of our 114 members fall somewhere in between. The anniversary will be commemorated with a luncheon at the Snowflake Lodge on Saturday.

Meet the 2016 Board Members

Our 2016 Independence Hall Quilters Board Members

2016-IHQ-Board

 

The IHQ 2016 Board Members introduced themselves and shared a bit of past & current projects.  So much talent in one room!!

I had intended to photograph each board member with their art, but I did not realize the “show” would be an informal “Sew & Tell”, and I quickly lost the opportunity. I blame my croup, or whatever hideous virus it is that still lingers, and sucks all energy.

So… if any board members feel they should have gotten a mention, but got lost into the black hole that is my brain, fear not!  Contact your local webmistress and request a private showing.
