We're 10! (almost)

At tonight's meeting, the guild I belong to -- the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild -- will celebrate its 10th birthday. On September 28, 1998, 28 quilters from Tioga and Potter counties in north-central Pennsylvania showed up for the first meeting. In the 10 years that the guild has been in existence, it has grown to about 150 members -- most from the northern tier of PA and the southern tier of NY. Fourteen of the charter members are still on the rolls. Little did we know that our guild would grow to be so popular and that our quilt exhibits would be so successful.

For tonight's meeting, we're all supposed to bring a fat quarter wrapped up as a present...that's all we's how I wrapped mine...
