I am so happy to be a member of this wonderful Denver quilt guild. There are so many talented quilters and artists in the guild but more than that, it’s the warm, welcoming atmosphere I sense whenever I get a chance to come to one of the events or meetings. Being brought up in a cold, strict, anglo-saxon family, this is quite a change for me and I am now starting to understand the word “community” and how it can be very important in sustaining you in life. I wrote about this a little in my last FRCQ monthly letter — about how the Olympic athletes wouldn’t be where they are without their support group and pledged myself to do even more to support the fiber artists I know who are struggling to make it to the top of their profession. It’s now a mission of mine.
Here’s a photo of me with the Co-Curator of the exhibit “Do you See What I See” — Joanne Walton. She is one of the nicest people I know.
