I love being a member of the Modern Quilt Guild. For me it's a place for inspiration, community, and fun. As we say in Kansas City, "The MQG changed my life." It may sound a little over the top, but it's true. My KC peeps and many folks around the country who are a part of this group understand. The connections, the friends, and the community have given me more than I've given them.
As many of you know I'm a Board member for the MQG and now I've been elected Chairman of the Board. I told myself that 2014 was going to be my year of saying NO, but in this case, no wasn't really even a consideration. I'm passionate about modern quilting and the guild and I want to do what I can to see it thrive and grow. I'm proud to be one of the leaders of this group. In a small way it is an opportunity to give back for what I've been given.
Have you joined? Are you a part of the movement? We'd sure love to have you. It's an exciting time for our guild as we establish a solid foundation and set ourselves up for the future.
I hope I can do the group proud. Though, in order to be Chairman of the Board, don't I need a gavel? A quilted, colorful one, maybe? No quilted vest, though. I won't even go there.
