Executive and Committees have been hard at work.....

The London Friendship Quilt Guild executive has been hard at work over the summer to ensure that the guild will be off to a great start in a few weeks for the 2011/2012 year! The crossover meeting was held in June with the retiring executive members and the new ones. Karen hosted us for a potluck where we got to know the new members over a lovely dinner.


Aren't potlucks just the best? There were so many great dishes and of course it is necessary to sample everyone of them!!

We didn't think we have room for dessert, but we managed to sample quite a few of these as well :-)
The Program Committee has been hard at work over the summer as well. Charlene and Jacqui got the ball rolling with some ideas in early June and then Micki agreed to be the head of this Committee. Welcome aboard Micki. Gail and Christine R also joined the Committee and a meeting was held at Mickie's in July to finalize a few speakers and toss ideas around for a well rounded program of speakers and workshops that should have something to interest all our members. Micki, Gail, Charlene and Jackie gathered around Micki's kitchen table in July:

Gail, Micki, Charlene and Jacqui met in Gail's lovely gazebo in August.

Our first speaker will be Glenda Spencer Craighurst, ON. She will be doing a trunk show and explaining the Medallion Mystery Quilt Program that our guild will be participating in starting October 2011. Watch for another blog post with more details of this program soon.

Newsletters were mailed and emailed to members already. It will soon be fall.
