Our next guild meeting will be Saturday May 4th and we will meet again at the Riverside Main Library, 3581 Mission Inn Ave, Riverside, in the Auditorium room on the second floor. Ruthann helpfully provided information regarding a nearby parking structure that is available if parking around the library itself is full. The parking structure is located at 3743 Orange St and looks to be a nice short walk from the library, please see the map here. Parking is free on Saturdays. We start socializing at 1:30 with a meeting start time of 2:00.
The program this month is our own Kim Wingert presenting “Community and Creativity; A History of Women and Quilting”. Kim debuted this program two years ago at the Upland Library for Women’s History Month and we are excited to have her bring this entertaining and insightful presentation to our guild.
Laura will be collecting quilts for our exhibit at the Chaffey Community Museum of Art. Quilts need to be submitted on Saturday May 18th. The display will hang from May 23rd to July 20th and the museum hours are Thursday through Sunday 12:00PM to 4:00PM. You can visit their website at: https://www.chaffeymuseum.org/. If you have a quilt, or two, or other item, that you wish to submit but will not be at the May meeting please contact Laura to make arrangements. There is a brief form to complete to go with your quilt and Laura will have copies available at the meeting. Or if you plan to deliver your submissions yourself you may download and print the form here.
Our May Board Meeting will take place after the guild meeting at Shelley Wardrop’s home, a short 2.5 miles from the library at 1979 Prince Albert Drive, Riverside. All guild members are welcome to attend.
