SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE BEGINNING OF OUR GUILD.

       As we continue the history of our guild. The quilt show was successful so Rika Bennett will be head of the next show for 1983. The Chamber of Commerce gave the guild a ribbon and recognition of their being the newest feature of the Apple Butter Festival.
     Classes continued to be taught by the guild members at the meetings.
      In November the chairperson of the NQA asked our Chapter to chair one of the committees at the NQA Quilt Show that will be held in Baltimore Md. JoAnne Moulden was selected to be chair. 
      A planned Spring Symposium was to be in April 1983. Quilt clubs within 200 to 300 miles radius would be invited.  It will be held in the conference room at Coolfont.
    The guild would host a luncheon with another guild.  Someone would teach a small make it and take it project, then have lunch and then show and tell by members of both guild.
     The  Spring Symposium was held on April 18, 1983.  The day was as followed:
   9am to 9:45am...... Registration and coffee and                                             get acquainted
    10am to 11:45am ... "Color in Quilting" Lecture

                                              visiting with each other

                                            Quilt Show in New Orleans,                                             LA
     5pm  .................... End of the day!
All of the member of the guild members made sure that the program ran smoothly.
         Sadly the book ends with a picture of members holding quilts for the show in 1983. I would  have loved to read more about the guild. I never found a name of who started to keep track of the guild at that time but it would have been wonderful to continue that on to the present time.  I did notice that the local newspaper did a lot of articles of the guild. I wish that would have continued on also. I love being a member of this guild and hope to be a part of the future of Delectable Mountains Quilt Guild.  By the way, does anyone know when the name changed from the original "Delectable Mountain Quilters" to the present? The name above is the name recorded on the original certificate when we joined NAQ in Nov. 28, 1981.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did when I found this book.
Hugs, Dixie
