Here we are getting ready for the 5th meeting of our guild year. Meetings have been well attended. I believe that everyone is happy with what is being offered. I and the Board of Officers are available to listen to your suggestions and to act, if pertinent. We love when members have a suggestion, a solution, and are willing to take the reins if the suggestion is approved. As the Ocean Waves Guild approaches the half-way point of this year, it is already time to start thinking about elections for next year’s Officers. Pam Chamberlain has agreed to be the Chair of the Nominating Committee. She will be looking for 2 to 4 members to serve on the Nominating Committee along with First Director Lois Erickson.
Congratulations to Kasha Abbott who won the Chapter Opportunity Quilt! Gale Polk has agreed to help organize the next Chapter Opportunity Quilt. Gale has gone north for the summer, we will look forward to her plans when she returns to South Florida. Also last month, the member demos were awesome. I want to make them all. Thank you - Marie, Liz, Lois, Pat and Sandy so much for sharing your skills with us.
I hope everyone is creating something for the Cowboy Days Quilt Display at Redland Fruit and Spice Park on July 23. Maybe the June meeting will inspire you: a cowboy expert speaker, square dancers, a horse race, barbeque theme food, cowboy casual attire, etc. Sandy Marietta gave us some quilt block ideas last month and we look forward to YOUR cowboy theme examples this month. This theme and this venue seem perfect for wall hanging art quilts.
The Ocean Wave Quilt Guild began in 1985. Since the July program is all about the UFO, try to find that first project you never finished as a member of Ocean Waves and bring it to the July 9th meeting. Do you know any of the Charter Members? Please invite them to come and visit. We'll celebrate 31 years as a guild.
Sometimes I think maybe I should do something besides quilt...then I realize how silly I'm being and go back to quilting.
