The Kick I Needed

This past Fall I received an email. It was about a meeting with local quilters to discuss forming a local Modern Quilt Guild. 


I decided to go. Just to check it out... hear what they had to say... see what the group looked like.
 
Well, as you can imagine. It was a great group and I was pumped and inspired. So much so that on that very first night, I had become the Vice President of Programs for the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild. Yes... you read that right. 



 
We have had a great start. I've met some amazing new friends. And it has helped me cope with all the stress around me. I've been inspired to sew and start looking at fabric again. I can't tell you what a difference it has made. 

We have even schedule our first outside speaker. We will be hosting Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts for a weekend in April. She will be doing a trunk show for the public and an awesome class for our guild. So exciting. 

How about you? Do you belong to a quilting guild? Does it inspire you?
