I would first like to take this opportunity to thank Kathy Mueller and all of the retiring officers and board members for their tireless efforts to foster the art of quilting through continued education and the fellowship that feeds the souls of the many talented members of Pride of the Prairie Quilt Guild. I would also like to thank those who are newly elected
to the board and look forward to working with you and all of the membership to make
this a guild we continue to be proud of. The 2019 schedule looks very exciting with an
interesting lineup of speakers and workshops as well as the celebration of our 35th
anniversary in April. You won’t want to miss the festivities so mark your calendars and be sure to attend. Don’t forget about our new workshop/class credit lottery! Check out the
information detailed in the newsletter.
Our 2020 Quilt Show Committee will be coordinating the sale of tickets at Quilt Festival
Chicago in Rosemont on Friday, March 29. Check with either Sandy Piatek, Carol O’Dell or Jennifer Henry to see how you can help with their needs to fill some “Quilt Angel” slots.
There are so many ways to be involved in Pride of the Prairie. This is your guild and we are so glad to have you among our membership.
