Happy New Year!!!!

It's time to ring in the new year...time for new beginnings....time to set goals and resolutions.
What quilting goals  have you set?
How about including the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild in those goals....we have a great 2011 planned!

Find out more at Wednesday's (January 5) guild meeting from 10am-12pm at The Sewing Studio in Maitland.  Robert Kaufman is generously donating solid charm packs for our first challenge of the year, details of which will be revealed at the meeting.  Also up for discussion is January's quilt show, National Sew Day (March 15), OMQG's Sew-Cial to commemorate our one year anniversary, survey results, and upcoming officer elections.  Bring any new quilting books or tools you received for Christmas to show and tell.  If Santa didn't bring you any, bring in your favorite book or tool ;-)  As always, we love to see projects for Show and Tell.  Remember, it doesn't have to be completed.  It's great to see the progression of projects as well.  

Below is a listing and description of our officer positions.  As March is the start of our new year, we will "elect" new officers at our February meeting.  If more than one person is interested in a position, we will have a majority rule vote; otherwise, it will be a non-voting election.   Email if you are interested in taking on an officer position or if you have any questions regarding the positions.

  1. I would be more than happy to be one of the program coordinators, OR the charity chair.
    I am completely happy with our current officers if they would be able and willing to serve another term.
