President's Letter


November 2016

Dear Members,

Fall has arrived, and with it the anticipation of the 2017 AQG Quilt Show, “Salute America”! Mark your calendars if you haven’t already done so, March 23, 24 & 25, 2017! The Quilt Show Committee is hard at work! You can find the Quilt Show forms in the Chatter or on-line to be a Volunteer, or enter a Quilt! Come join us, get involved!  If you have not had a chance to be a volunteer, come and be part of the excitement.  See what happens behind the curtain, what goes into making our Quilt Show so great, for without you we could not shine!

Arizona Quilters Guild is selling Phoenix Craft, Quilt and Sewing Festival tickets. The Quilt Craft and Sewing Festival is a 3-day event being held from January 26th to January 28th, 2017 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. You will find a wide variety of Sewing, Quilting, Needle-Art and Craft supply exhibits from many quality companies.  Check with your Chapters, or go online here, or contact Laura Niemann (presidentelect) to purchase discounted tickets for $7.00. 

Our Fall Business Meeting is just around the corner!  Our guest speaker as you know is Shannon Brinkley and we are having classes in Goodyear, Chandler, Cottonwood and Holbrook!  Still time to sign up for a class!  The Board and I are looking forward to seeing you at  the Fall Meeting!


Together there is nothing we cannot achieve!

Dale Nokes
