|September's Program featured our new President, Kaye Hlavaty, who informed us about her sewing and quilting history, beginning in childhood. Her skill grew as she moved from sewing Barbie doll outfits to making her own school clothing, becoming the envy of many of her classmates. Her interest in sewing naturally led to quilting and to membership and leadership in several area guilds. The Lake Oconee Guild is fortunate that Kaye's path led her to Greene County and our Guild.|
Following Kaye's presentation, she called on all other Officers and Program Chairs to introduce themselves to Members, to tell about their function in the Guild, and to highlight plans they have for the coming Guild Year.
During the meeting, Members and Guests had the opportunity to purchase fabric, patterns, kits and sewing notions at a discount from Alicia Whitehouse.
