From: Libby Corriston, OQG President
Dear Olathe Quilt Guild Members,
Mother Nature is not working well with us this week. Much as we want to have an in-person meeting of the quilt guild, it will be probably be cold and rainy tomorrow evening. The board and committee chairs have made the only practical decision – we will have our meeting on Zoom tomorrow night.
The Zoom link for our Tuesday meeting is in the group email of May 10 sent at approximately 1:16 PM.
We are so lucky to still have our speaker, Barb Eikmeier, and so happy she has been willing to be flexible! Please be sure to read your newsletter, to be up-to-date on everything we have going on.
A few changes must be made regarding the meeting, due to our change to online:
Please take pictures of your Show and Tell projects for May and send them to Melissa Toburen, by either text or e-mail. Her contact info is in the latest membership roster you received with the newsletter on May 2nd.
Mary Ellen Winter has your pre-ordered festival tickets, t-shirts, and pins. She would have brought them to distribute at the meeting. Now, you should contact Mary Ellen to arrange a time to pick up your items at her house, or you may wait to pick up your purchases at our June meeting if you wish. Our June guild meeting is about a week prior to the festival. Mary Ellen’s contact info is in the membership roster.
Cheryl Lowrance has decided to put off the 2020 Challenge Quilt project showing until our hoped-for in-person meeting in June. Contact Cheryl if you have any questions.
We will try again in June for an in-person outdoor meeting, perhaps at the church. But I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow meeting on Zoom for our May meeting! We are so lucky to have an alternative to cancelling our meeting completely! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. My contact info is also in the guild roster. ~Libby Corriston
