We held our first meeting of 2021 on Sunday, January 10th via Zoom. We were so excited to see so many new and returning faces! While we are sad we cannot yet meet in person, we are so glad that the technology exists to allow us to still “meet” and be inspired by each other while we remain distanced.
Starting off, we wanted to be sure that everyone could put a face to the new 2021 board!
President – Priscilla Dulin: Our faithful leader! She is in charge of running our monthly meetings as well as guiding the direction of the guild.
VP Operations – Hadley Mendoza Miklos: Hadley is in charge of all things membership! But she is also playing a critical role of streamlining our guild’s communications and organization.
VPs of Activities – Colleen Molen and Sue Bouchard: Together, Colleen and Sue will be in scheduling and organizing our activities this year including workshops, swaps, monthly demos and our end of year holiday party.
Secretary – Jen Collins: Jen will serve as the guild’s documentarian. She will be helping with newsletters, reminders and social media communications. Hi!
Treasurer/Charity Coordinator – Kristyn Jansen: Kristyn is in charge of managing the guild’s dues and finances. She is also responsible for orchestrating and managing the guild’s extensive charity effort.

If you haven’t already done so, it is time to renew your membership! We are asking people to send in their registration and dues by February to ensure there is no gap in your membership. Please renew your membership here.
There is an activities survey currently open for members (link can be found in the January newsletter email). We are asking all members to complete the survey to help with the planning of this year’s activities.
Quiltcon Together happening February 18-22, 2021. The guild will be posting a list in the private facebook group, so members can share which classes they have signed up for. If members are interested, they can coordinate working together on class projects.
This trimester (January – April) we are supporting the Ronald McDonald House. Kristyn has cooked up another great group block kit. Anyone interested in participating can request a kit from Kristyn and make up two of these super cute bow tie blocks.
Read more about the group project and how to request a kit here. Otherwise, we will be accepting all sizes of quilts for this trimester’s drive. These quilts are intended for children of all ages.
We are also holding a potholder drive to support the Community Resource Center’s Holiday Baskets program. This is a great time to use up orphan blocks! Sue did a great binding tutorial for potholders during the meeting. You can read more about this project, suggested materials and see Sue’s pdf tutorial here.
Finally, have a quilt that doesn’t fit with this trimester’s drive? No worries! All of your beautiful and generous guilt donations are always welcome. Any charity questions or requests for supplies can be sent to Kristyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
