QCNYS meeting hosted by Thread Bears Quilt Guild

December 8 was our quarterly membership meeting in Verona hosted by the Thread Bears Quilt Guild of Sherrill, NY.   The room was filled to capacity and the agenda was full.   Outgoing officers Val Schultz as Vice President and Martha Wetzler as secretary were honored as new officers Dawn Garafolo and Debbie Lester were installed in those respective positions.  Members were treated to a show and tell by Susan Jones of Twilight Stitchers who won the Scholarhip award last year, showing her latest Judy Niemeyer quilts.  Cathy Rohr from Tug Hill Quilters gave a report on the community service grant awarded to her guild last year.  

After lunch Jackie O'Brien showed us several new rulers and quilts she had designed using those rulers.   More pictures from that will follow another day.   For now, here are some "around the room" shots from the meeting.

Vendor row.   They were kept busy all day with new items for us to peruse and purchase.

Silent Auction baskets prepared by the host guild.   All of them were filled with lots of wonderful goodies.

Ahhhh, the soups for lunch!   Which one to choose....they all looked SO good!   There were sandwiches to add and more desserts than we could count....of every flavor and variety.
