First Dutchess Quilter's Guild is an organization of quilters from New York's Mid-Hudson Valley. Our guild of more than 100 quilters meets generally the third Wednesday of the month, September through June. We host speakers, offer workshops and participate in community service projects. Many of our members also volunteer their time to support the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show, which was held at Dutchess Community College October 10 & 11, 2015.
"The Purpose of the First Dutchess Quilters is to promote interest in and encourage participation in the art of quilting to stimulate and coordinate the efforts and talents of individual interested in quilting and to maintain a club for the social enjoyment of it's members ." Article II of the bylaws
With winter approaching, I'd like to review the FDQ bad weather policy. Traditionally, an FDQ meeting is canceled if the Arlington Central School District cancels classes. We will continue to use that policy, because it considers weather conditions across a good part of thecounty. A meeting will also be canceled if the library has a weather closing, but in that case I expect ACSD to also be closed.
In the event of snow cancellation, either Ginny or I will send out an email. I will also post a cancellation notice on our web site. We will make an effort to reschedule for the following week if both the library and speaker are available.
