A Note from our President

Welcome to the 2016 edition of the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild!  I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun filled December!  I am excited about 2016 and personally have dubbed it “The Year of Challenges”.  Some challenges I have set for myself include Daily Doodles and walking 1000 miles.  At the time of this writing, I have logged 37 miles and you can check out my daily doodles over on Instagram, @thequiltingcats, if you’d like.    
The new board members and I met the 1st week of January and I was so impressed by their ideas and creativity that I went home and cleaned up my sewing room!  I’m not sure why it is that every fall I slack off on quilting and sewing.   Hmm… maybe I need a “quilty therapist” to help me sort this out.  Anyway, I’m off topic.   Let me just say that the Board is definitely going to keep you on your toes this year as they challenge your creativity and hopefully increase your skills.  It should be lots of fun!
As the outgoing VP of 2015, I asked everyone to complete a questionnaire about what they liked, didn’t like or wanted to change about the guild and WOW, you rose to that challenge!  Outside of someone’s request that one of us take her kids to their music lessons on guild nights so she can attend the meetings, I believe the board will be able to continue to do what was liked and will work on changing what wasn’t liked.  So let’s start one of the changes right now.  A majority of individuals requested a change in our meeting start time, and requested more interaction/social time.  SO TAKE NOTE!!  

Socialization will begin at 6:30pm 
General Meeting will begin at 7:00pm

And we encourage everyone to go to Central Market after the meeting for continued quilty interactions that include food and drinks.  
I am looking forward to seeing you all on the 21st and every month after in 2016.  You are all such wonderfully creative and inspiring individuals!
