March President’s Letter

We are just a few weeks away from our Ruby Extravaganza Quilt Show. This year we celebrate our 40th Anniversary! We will be showcasing our 40th Anniversary Quilt and it’s beautiful, make sure you come and see it! Our guest speakers will be Barbara Janson, Martha Walker of Wagons West Designs, and Carmen Geddes of Ten Sisters Handicraft, check the program for their date/time.

We currently only have 50% of the volunteers needed for the quilt show. Member volunteers are the heart of the AQG Quilt Show – we couldn’t do it without you! Look for information in this Chatter on how you can help. Our Spring Meeting, for the first time ever will be in Lake Havasu. Havasu Stitchers and Kingman Quilters our host chapters are busy getting everything ready for a great meeting. Jackie Kunkel is our keynote speaker and is offering classes…but we are still looking for Host Chapters. Check the AQG website for all details.

I am optimistic we will find volunteers who want to serve our committed members!! We should already be showcasing nominees to you but have yet to find anyone to fill the current year President Elect, President Elect for 2018- 2019 and Secretary position. Last month I asked the chapter chairs to nominate members who they thought would be good candidates. All I can say is if you like having a quilt show, going to classes, the annual meetings, bus trips, retreats then…. Start thinking how you can help because the current board is approaching the end of term and new board members are needed. In this issue of the Chatter we have placed the forms for nominations. If we do not receive nominations we will have to consider where we go from here. Please give it some thought.

See you at the Quilt Show!

Laura Niemann, President
