March Meeting Recap

Because the February meeting was cancelled, this was our new president's first meeting to lead! Yay Neva! There was also a ton of stuff to cover from a lost month.

The guild presented a quilty thank you gift to former president Jessica Skultety for her years of service.

Aurifil Thread had contacted Jess S. about our guild, and sent a box swag bags that were handed out to members. We are all so grateful! Included in a reusable bag were informational brochures, two color charts, and a sample pack of six weights of thread. Amazing!
