From the President
Happy New Year, everyone, I hope this finds you safe and healthy. I wanted to start this year off with some positive thoughts and some encouraging words of wisdom. Here are some famous quotes, famous lines and famous sayings:
Use your time wisely
Value yourself for who you are
Hone your skills
Keep your head up
Knowledge is power
Every moment is a fresh beginning
Never regret anything that made you smile
And Finally -
Aspire to inspire before we expire!
May 2022 find us getting back to normal. Have a fabulous day and see you at our next guild meeting.

Quilto! - Love to add to your stash or share some of your fat quarters. Then don't miss Quilto at our January meeting. Each Quilto (like bingo) card is $1; buy as many as you like. Bring your buttons or coins to use as daubers and some fat quarters. For each game, a fat quarter is the prize for a Quilto bingo. Get ready to have some fun! Show and Tell will follow.
Sandy H, Vice President
Retreat is only six weeks away! Make sure you pay your remaining balance at the January meeting.
A suggested list of what to bring to retreat will be provided at the February guild meeting.
Everyone will need to wear name tags at the retreat. Please feel free to wear a name tag from a previous retreat; otherwise sticky name tags will be provided.
We will be playing two different games (Saturday and Sunday) – Left/Right/Center requires 3 fat quarters and a new game called Hold/Trade/Kitty requires at least 3 items associated with sewing/quilting.
These items should be new or slightly used from your sewing room (please DO NOT purchase for this game). You also may bring more than 3 items if you wish. You are more than welcome to play either game or both (or none if you wish). These are fun little breaks to get you up and moving and making new friends. Suggestions for Hold/Trade/Kitty are thread, sewing notion, pin set, pattern, ruler, etc.
The January meeting is the deadline to turn in food orders at a guild meeting. Orders can still be mailed if received by February 4; address is on the order food (available on the website: mvqgohio.com).
I have the entire center of the quilt finished. We now need to color the borders. I have booked three dates at the Fairborn Library in the basement meeting room.
Saturday, January 15th from 10 am - 1 pm
Thursday, January 20th from 5:15 - 8 pm
Sunday, January 23rd from 1 - 5 pm
I would love to have a variety of people to come on any of these dates so we can get a nice mix of flowers in the four borders.

We are in need of replacements for the 2024 quilt show. Now is the time to volunteer. You will be able to shadow and learn how the show flows. Get great ideas for the 2024 show. Meet the awesome team members. You are supported in every aspect of the show….you just need to lead and delegate. If you are an organizer, like to check off lists of things to do and have the personality that pays attention to detail without being a micro manager, this is a perfect fit for you. Shari and Sherry can’t express how rewarding it is to plan the show and work with all our wonderful guild members.
Shari and Sherry, Quilt Show Co-Chairs
Twenty 20 quilts were donated to the relief effort for the tornado victims in Kentucky. Bill's Donuts in Centerville, working with a local church, collected items which have been taken to Kentucky. I know we usually try to keep the quilts to help locally but I felt that the need in hard hit Kentucky was greater this time.
