Please contact the election committee or any board member if you are interested or have questions.

As elections mark a new year for our guild, I thought it would be interesting to find out if our members make any quilting new year resolutions.  Do you make a list of projects you plan to make in the upcoming year?  Do you resolve to become more involved in guild activities?  Are there new techniques or classes you want to learn/take in 2015? It could be this is the time you decide to start your own blog, pledge to blog more or just plan to comment more on your favorite blogs.  Maybe your New Year's resolution is to not make any more resolutions.  We want to hear from you.  Tell us what your quilty resolutions are for 2015.  The Random Number Generator will choose a winner in early January.

  2. I plan to quilt mainly from my stash, put a dent in my UFO list, and become a more consistent blogger.

  3. My goal is to practice sewing in bursts. I tend to wait until I 'have enough time', but if I just sit down for ten minutes here, twenty there an amazing amount gets done. Since I have a dedicated sewing area, there's really no reason not to take advantage of those spare moments.

  4. My 1st goal is to make several small quilts for a space in my repainted bathroom, so I'll have a little revolving quilt gallery there. My 2nd goal is finally, after quilting for 20 years, to make myself a quilt in my favorite blue.

  5. My goal is multi faceted: First, learn to paper piece. Second, complete my 2014 Christmas quilts (maybe that should be first!); Third, tackle a long arm.

  7. I AM going to try to paper piece. Borrow a Longarm (*cough*cough* Beth) for a first longarm quilt project. Have fun doing it!

  8. My goal is just to quilt MORE! Basically, I believe if I can get in more sewing time then I am likely to use more scraps/stash, finish more UFOs and to be more likely to try new skills.

  9. I've already completed one goal. Which was to reorganize my supplies. It's amazing how much room 25 yards of cotton batting takes up on a roll!

    The other goal is to learn something new every few months. I've started this with learning paper piecing and find I quite enjoy it.

  14. I plan on finding my ufos and recording them in a quilt notebook along with ideas for future projects. I will also learn more about and practice free motion quilting.
