New Executive Board–September 2017

May 31, 2017

Would you consider joining us on the ESQG Executive Board?  We’re looking for members to join us in filling the following positions come September

President                                                                       Vice President

Treasurer                                                                       Secretary

Programs and Workshops                                          Historian

Hostess                                                                           Advertising

Publicity

If you’ve enjoyed being a member of Erie Shores Quilt Guild, it’s because so many people are working away in the background to make it all happen.

**If there are any positions you would be willing to fill, please contact one of the executive…you won’t regret it.

 

A few details about Hostess position, as per our by-laws: take attendance and welcome guests. Provide bottled water for sale to membership at the general meetings (optional, and we have a cooler on wheels to accommodate). And also to work with the Program Chair to arrange for vendors as needed. This position can be shared. Our current hostesses are doing a great job, I’m sure they’ll be happy to help the new hostess(es) settle in.

If you’re not swooning over the idea of the hostess position, you might consider Publicity/Advertising. Sounds daunting, right? Not! Can you contact businesses and offer them a small spot in our newsletter? Maybe make a call to the local press about our upcoming quilt show or other event? Our executive will give you all kinds of support and help with this, please consider taking it on. It’s a fun and friendly group of people doing their best to provide quilty pleasure. C’mon, don’t be scared.

April 2017 Guild Meeting

April 20, 2017

We had the Chatham Applique Group to thank for a fabulous trunk show.  Each member presented two quilts.  There were so many different styles to view.  The group had presented some that were hand appliqued along with others that had been machine appliqued.  The ladies presenting brought their sense of humour along making for a very enjoyable evening.  The following are pictures from the trunk show:

Marian Wiebe Trunk Show–March 2017

March 21, 2017

Well, Marian Wiebe treated our members to an awesome evening of quilting.   Her ability to speak so freely about her talents as a quilter along with her sense of humour, made for a very enjoyable evening for all.  It was nice to see her family’s influence in her quilts, some of whom came to the meeting to assist Marian in her presentation.  The standing ovation at the end of her show represents just how much our members enjoyed the evening.  Thank you for a wonderful evening Marian.   Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

.  Her sense of colour and artistic ability certainly showed in her quilts, which are pictured below.
