The guild met on January 21 for our first monthly meeting of the year. We set our Sewing Resolutions/Goals for the year, which we will revisit in July for a check-in and then again in December to see how much we accomplished. We also covered some quilt news and business before sharing for show & tell.
We will begin a new quiltalong for the year in February, and we'll also have a new charity block assignment for our partnership with The Restoration House.
