Hello fellow quilt lovers! It looks like the groundhog might be right about an early Spring for 2024…it’s 60° and it’s been sunny 2 days in a row. That being said, several Board members reported at the last Zoom meeting that they have significant green sprouting going on in their flowerbeds. Even though this winter has been pretty mild, you know we are all ready for the days to keep getting longer and brighter.

March and April are busy times for CCQG every year. There is the Spring quilt retreat, National Quilting Day and THE GUILD’S 40th birthday. We are celebrating that at the meeting in March, and I want to encourage everyone to attend. If you know a “founding member” who is not active any longer, for whatever reason, please, please bring them to the March meeting for recognition and celebration.

We do have business to address in March and April as well. April is the end of our fiscal year, and that brings election of officers for 2024-25. I am begging you to remember that we are ALL volunteers, and I know so many stepped up to give their time and skills for the quilt show last Fall. Serving on the Board is really not a big time commitment. You may not realize that there is only one meeting a month, for usually an hour or less, on Zoom. Send me an email or text if you are hesitant so I can shamelessly bribe you with treats. Heaven knows it isn’t a particularly formal Board!

The other business we have to take care of will be a vote to approve (or not) an Amendment to the by-laws to include a conflict-of-interest policy. This vote will be in March, and the proposed policy will be available well ahead of time for your review.

So, in April I will transform into “past president.” This presidency has been fun in ways I never expected. Thank you so much for your support and love, all year long.

I appreciate you all so much.

Capitol City Quilt Guild (CCQG) was organized in March, 1984, to encourage fellowship, cooperation, and learning among area quilters and to promote public appreciation for creativity and high standards for quilting.  CCQG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization giving to the community education, hosting quilt shows to spread the art of quilting.  The Guild members make and donate quilts for various charities and as well as provide free education seminars for the public on the art of quilting.
