President’s February Message


The MVQG Spring Retreat is coming fast. I started going 6-7 years ago and have only missed one since then. It is a time to get away from all the things in life that we have pulling us away from sewing every day …….cleaning, cooking every meal, responsibili-ties to others, meetings, yard work…you get it. It was a little scary my first time because I didn’t really know anyone except 1 person. What was I getting myself into? I took […]

President’s January Message


Admittedly, this is the first time I attended the Charity Group. It was an amazing experience. Lots to do, hustle, bustle and conversation.

Each person was working diligently toward the goal of a finished quilt. Once they are tied they go home with someone to be bound and returned to the general meeting or […]

Presidents September Message


My last President’s message! Thank you for a wonderful two years. Despite my initial trepidation, I have enjoyed myself immensely. You are a wonderful group of people!! As my final act as President, I have taken it upon myself to re-number the newsletters. It occurred to me the other day (middle of the night, of course), that the Guild has been in existence for 35 years, yet we are at issue 44??? of the newsletter. Clearly we have gotten off […]
