May President’s Letter

Travel AZ – Destination Copper Country Spring Meeting was a hit!  It was a Beautiful day for a road trip!  I want to thank Apache Sew ‘N Sews, Copper Thimbles and Copper Country Quilters for an outstanding job!  The Quilts hanging in the hall where a wonderful addition to the decorations!  Our Hosts took such great care of us we all had a fun time.  Laura Heine gave us a Trunk Show of wonderful quilts and everyone was excited about upcoming classes with Laura!  To see what you missed you can click here to see the power point presentation.

We are delighted to be starting off with Barb Janson.  Click here to join us with “A Day with Arizona’s Landscape Lady – Barb Janson.  Let Barb introduce you to the wonderful “Road to Riches” class, her new landscape quilt design.  If you are interested but cannot do the all-day class,  consider joining us only in the morning for Barb’s wonderful Trunk Show and Lecture as she shares her favorite tips and techniques.

I would like to take this time to say Thank You to AQG for the opportunity you have given me.  My time as your Present Elect and now as your President has been a great joy!  I have met so many wonderful quilters!  To get to know you and your chapters has been a blessing for me.  If you have not had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful organization, you are missing one of life’s greatest gifts. To be involved with such creative and giving group of people as all of you is priceless.  Thank you for giving me time in your busy lives, it has been a joy to be a part of AQG.  I have only a couple of months left as your President and I know you will give our President Elect,  Laura Niemann all the support and encouragement you have giving me.  Thank you!!

Together there is nothing we cannot achieve!
