From the President’s Pen

By Liz Richardson

 

Congratulations and thanks to each of you for embodying the essence of the friendship star block this year. 

Many areas have been outstanding this year, but the following four areas have exceeded goals set for the year.

Membership  The guild has grown from 59 to 73 members—an increase of 24%.  Socialization was encouraged with a retreat and several field trips to quilt shows and quilt stores.  These activities strengthen our relationships and strengthen our guild.  Thank you everyone for recommending the guild to your friends!

Charitable & Educational Activities  The QOV bee contributed 8 quilts to the QOV foundation during our Honoring our Veterans program.  Guild members presented quilts to honor their veteran family members.  The LBJ bee contributed 50 quilts to the Harris Health System.

Fundraising  You have generously supported the guild and that has allowed us to exceed our budgeted income by 17%.  We also reduced our expenses by 15%.

Tax Exempt  We have achieved our goal of becoming a tax exempt organization under the IRS Code 501(c)3.  

 

You are the greatest group of quilters I have known.  You have a wealth of knowledge and experience, you are caring and giving of your time and talents and you have made this guild a wonderful place to come to each month.  I have been blessed to serve as your president this year.  Thank you for this rewarding and enriching experience.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Our Purpose

Peace by Piecing Quilt Guild is a guild dedicated to promoting appreciation of the art of quilting, while encouraging quilt making of all forms.  We are a fellowship of people interested in sharing our passion for the art with a strong desire to contribute to the growth and education of our community and fellow quilters.  We propose to be a guild that welcomes the novice as well as the most experienced quilters and we are dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the rich heritage and art of quilting.  We will strive to increase the knowledge of traditional and contemporary techniques of quilting and provide an encouraging environment in which quilters of all levels can practice and exchange ideas.  We will serve the community through charitable activities.
