                              ***President’s Message ***
                      This month’s meeting includes our Annual General
                      Meeting. We have some important issues to vote on
                      and will elect a new executive. The executive is
                      recommending an annual membership fee of $35
                      to offset the rent increase and continue to provide
                      the same level of programs and community projects.
                      The executive is also recommending that the
                      treasurer be allowed to transfer money by internet.
Please refer to the wording presented below.
        The Nominating Committee has filled all slots; we have more
members volunteering than ever before! Thank you for getting/staying
actively involved! Great job, Judi, Mary-Lou and Yvonne!                                       Inside this issue:

show next year. The Show Committee still needs some volunteers. Please                 Library Block

         Once again, I would like to begin with a huge thank-you to our many members who continue to share their time and talent to
complete quilts for our community projects. Our large suitcase is bulging with small quilts and I have some more in a bag ready for
presentation at our June meeting. There are at least eighteen full size quilts just waiting for labels. These will be shared with
Choices Youth Shelter, Family Transition Place and Caledon/Dufferin Victim Services. Representatives from each organization will
be invited to our June meeting to receive their quilts. We also have some completed tops that need to be quilted and will start our
donations for next year. The quilts all look warm and snuggly (just a little bright?) and should certainly add comfort and cheer to
many beds.
         As our May meeting falls on Victoria Day, we will not have an afternoon workshop before our meeting. Our final afternoon
to stitch community projects will be Tuesday, May 26 anytime after 1:00 p.m. at Cobwebs and Caviar. We have two wonderful ways
to make pillowcases to show you and any available stitchers may sew pillowcases for Sick Kids or work on finishing up blocks and
tops. I will bring some of our donated material for the pillowcases or use this opportunity to clean out some of your stash for this
project. Bring your machine (or use one of A.J.’s and Jackie’s) and any needed sewing supplies and join us for the afternoon. Com-
munity Quilts have really enjoyed using the upstairs room and our budget has not been depleted paying rent thanks to A.J. and
         Plans for next year include continuing to support our local groups by reviewing their need for quilts and trying to meet that
need as much as we can. Community Quilts may not be quite as active in the coming year as many of our members will need time to
prepare their own quilts to be exhibited at our fall 2010 quilt show. Donating quilts in our community has been one of the goals for
Dufferin Piecemakers but we may not always give the same number of quilts each year. Each member will be encouraged to help in
any way they can. Many thanks to all those who have helped with the Community Projects committee this year and to those who
have volunteered for next year. It is all very much appreciated.

         Thank you A.J. and Jacky of Cobwebs & Caviar along with their wonderful team of helpers for sharing your time
and talents at the April Guild meeting. I think the buss in the room clearly indicated value was found in your many
stations of techniques and many left full of promise with skills for their next project.
         Come One, Come All, Come out to the Fair! Haven’t you always wanted to enter your local fair and share your
quilting talents! I have wandered the shows admiring the winners circle and secretly judging all the applicants’ work and
yet feeling too afraid myself.
         Fern Pugh, Joanne Kiser, Berva Buttery and Beckie Shaw will share their expertise as judges and participants in
past fairs to help us understand all you need to know to “Get Ready for the Fair”. They will dispel that fear and give you
an inside track on what the judges want to see. We will have some brochures from Fairs we sponsor so you can learn
what categories are offered and what you need to do to enter and perhaps even place in the show on the Ribbon Wall of
Fame. Mark your calendar and bring a pen and paper and leave your fears at the door.
         QBA On Saturday May 2nd—8 of our guild members had the opportunity to be inspired by Daphne’s fine stitches
and comfortable teaching environment as she enlightened us on the art of English Paper Piecing. The examples and ef-
fort she put into her class were tremendous and all who attended were amazed at how many variations could be made
with this technique. Please bring your completed projects for Show and Share and all who missed out … take some time
to visit with Daphne and I am sure she will share her secrets. Thank you Daphne.

booking early for the 2009—2010 schedule.                                       Yvonne, Shirley, Lois, Pat, and Nancy
