Vice President - Janet Jozwiak

Our March speaker, Elly Levie has been rescheduled for October, due to the bad weather and cancellations in March. I’ll have a voting page for the workshop since we have more time to plan for it, we may be able to do a different workshop that more people may be interested in.

April is finally here, and we have Sue Pritt from Schagticoke, NY coming to tell us all about “Her Favorite Things”. I took a class from her at Log Cabin Fabrics about a year ago and it was filled with lots of great tips and tricks. She will be doing the fused applique workshop on Thursday April 19, for us at St. James Church on Rt 9 in Hyde Park. There are 2 openings if you already have one of the 10 patterns she does for the one-day class and would like to attend, call or email Janet to register. There is prep work required ahead of time, so don’t wait until the last minute like Janet usually does 😉.

In May we have Laura Little from Just Threads in Watertown, NY to show us some great ideas with her “Talking Threads” presentation. And the workshop “Stitching Fun” the following day will give us the chance to play with fun decorative threads and decorative stitches on your machine. Sign up for the workshop by mail to Janet, or at the April meeting (see workshop registration form).

Not a workshop but coming in June, Jane Davila featured on Quilting Arts TV series

We’ve got some fun things in the works for next year, if you have some ideas you would like to see contact Janet and we’ll try to get some of those speakers, topics or workshops. We need your help. Does anyone have a spot where our speaker can park her RV- no hookups required just a level spot to park in Nov 14-15 (a week earlier than normal due to Thanksgiving timing) contact Janet. Other ways to help: take signups at the meeting for workshops, or be the speaker’s helper at a workshop, or meet the speakers for dinner, or host a speaker overnight at your non-smoking home, if you would like to get your feet wet helping with any of these items see or email Janet, Thanks.
