Quilt Guild Anniversary

Quilt Guild Anniversary

One of the quilt guilds I belong to just had their 10th anniversary and a celebration dinner was held at a local Country Club. We dressed for dinner and a wonderful meal. The tables were decorated with folded Fat Quarters to create an 8 Pointed Star and each guest at the table received a Fat Quarter to take home.

The moment a person walked in the room, they would notice a slide show presentation of photos flashing on a screen.  Hundreds of photos, which were taken during the 10 years of Show & Tell, workshops, and Retreats, were compiled together for the slideshow. We saw members who have moved or their hair styles that have changed. It kept drawing one’s eye back to the screen throughout the evening.

We had speeches from founding members and past presidents, some of whom have moved away. Comments were made about our hopes for the future. Some of the evenings show & tell were of first and recent quilts made by members. It was a perfect statement of how far we have come.
