March 18 2014 Quilting Newsletter

Knock, knock, itís that time of the week again. I do hope this newsletter finds you with a little time on your hands to pour yourself a cuppa and have a quick browse through the news for this week.

Iíve been an active member of my state quilt guild since 1994 performing a number of different roles in that time. I was Editor of the newsletter for 18 months, vice president for two years, managed the quilt stands from time to time, judged quilt shows and challenges, opened exhibitions, acted as Chair for the National Quilt Conference, organised the tea roster for a year, lectured on copyright to various groups and am currently the Co-ordinator of Valuations.

You can see that I truly believe that if you belong to a group it is important that you contribute to the successful organisation of the group, regardless of how big or small it is.

The reason Iím telling you this is that itís that time of year when positions become vacant in voluntary quilting guilds and I would encourage you to think about taking a step forward and making a contribution.

It doesnít have to be in an executive position Ė perhaps it could be as an assistant to a busy position such as class registrar or guest speaker co-ordinator. Iím sure you could find a little niche where you could help out and make a difference. Food for thought.

Last week I posted a terrific poem by my friend Jenny Riley about being voted onto a committee Ė itís very tongue in cheek and will give you a giggle! Hereís the link:

Donít forget the forum is your opportunity to have a voice on the Quilting site. Hereís a link:

Now for the goodies Iíve gathering together for this week. I do hope you find something of interest here. a little hanging all about the star all about marking tools a tote with a chevron pattern all about flange binding a toiletry travel roll for those vitals a teddy bear hooded towel to make for your little cub a terrific pincushion gift idea how to make a collapsible box! this set of beautiful works of art leave me feeling very inadequate! a rose of Sharon block with a twist

Thatís all I have for you for this week. Stay well and happy and Iíll pop in again next week. Until then, take care
Cheerio for now
