March Meeting Minutes
Introduction of new members & guests
Thank you everyone for coming to sew and to share with us!
I appreciate your patience as we get this new year rolling-- my healing process is apparently involving months rather than weeks
Hope those who went to QuiltCon had tons of fun!
We have a chairperson meeting directly after this meeting in order to plan the rest of the year. It looks very exciting and we will be learning/refreshing techniques each month!
We have a very exciting show planned in March-- thanks to all who entered -- we are so proud of all of you!

We are also planning a few workshops/classes coming up. Finalizing those plans shortly.
