Connecting You
with the Art of Quilting

The President's Message

Carol Weber

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”                                                              - Walt Disney Company

Happy New Year! Is it 2018 already?
Now that the holidays are over, we can settle down to start or complete some of the quilting projects we have not had time to work on. Are you using your projects to either boost or maintain your creativity?

If you are in need of some inspiration to get yourself going, FDQ has many opportunities of which you should take advantage. The rest of this guild year is packed full of interesting speakers, two exciting workshops, the introduction of a new challenge, Super Saturday, Quilt Retreat, and a trip to the NJ Quilt Show to get your creative juices flowing! Also, don’t forget Share and Inspire and chatting with friends at the guild meeting to get an idea or solution to a current project. So, join in on the fun and get involved with the guild, you will be glad you did!

See you at the Hellenic Center in January!

Wed. 17  FDQ Meeting:

at the Helenic Center

Weather Cancellation Policy

If Arlington schools are closed because of winter weather, the FDQ meeting will be canceled.

School cancellations are at School Cancellations.  In addition, a meeting could be canceled due to nasty weather late in the day, after school hours.

If a meeting is canceled, it will be posted on the website on the HOME and ACTIVITIES pages .   Also, we will try to send out an email, and/or an old-fashioned
telephone tree.

Welcome to the First Dutchess Quilters' Guild.  Whether you are new to the guild or a long time member, we hope you feel welcome at our meetings and other events.  The best way to feel more a part of the group is to get involved, come to meetings, participate in workshops, community quilting, Super Saturday, bus trips, volunteer for a guild position or at the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show.  

President, Carol Weber
