Patoka Valley Quilt Guild met April 3 Submitted by Joyce Beck The April meeting of the Patoka Valley Quilt Guild was April 3 at the Ferdi- nand Library with vice- president Jane Potter pre- siding. The treasurer's report was given by vice-president Jane in the absence of John- nie Heeke, treasurer. Education chair Becky Fuller showed her fin- ished quilt for the Block- of-the-Month project. She is planning on demonstrat- ing machine quilting at the May 26 Open Sewing at the Ferdinand Library. If any- one is still needing a pat- tern, she has some extras available. Sherri Hilgeman gave the dates of April 13 and 14, May 26 and June 9, as the future dates for Open Sew- ing. These dates will all be at the Ferdinand Library. Sherri will be getting there to set up around 9 a.m. Jane Potter is consid- ering having a Jelly Roll class before the June meet- ing. She will possibly start the class around 5:30 p.m. There will be a sign-up sheet at the next meeting. There will be a $5 charge collected at time of sign-up. Hospitality chair Kathy Weyer stated we had 14 members and no guests at the meeting. Low turnout was possible because of the inclement weather. Membership chair Pa- mela Catt read the names of members with April birthdays. Montgomery Retreat chair Ann Jordon had reg- istration forms for the June 22-June 24 retreat. Prices are the same as last year. Everyone attending has lots of fun. It is a nice and enjoyable way to get to know each other and learn new quilting techniques. Ann Jordon and Jane Pot- ter let the members know that the yard sale is being postponed until later. If you need sale tickets, con- tact Ann. You should bring items you want to sell with the price tickets attached. They ask that you do not bring any items that will be free. These can be brought to the regular meetings. Jane stated that the Nom- inating Committee will be working on getting a slate of officers for next year. A lot of the existing officers have fulfilled their terms of serving and by our by- laws cannot serve another term. This means that we will need a lot of new peo- ple to step up and become an officer. Think about tak- ing an office when you get the call. Show and tell followed with members displaying some of their projects. Pirates of the Cumberland Striper fishing was a bit early last week for Cumberland Lake, but Pirates of the Cumberland guide service owner James Lee Fugate, Lance M. Capozella and James M. Capozella did have some luck. Pictured is James Capozella with a nice striper caught in about 20 feet of water in one of the bays on an extensive lake that has 1200 miles of shoreline. The same three fishermen lim- ited out last year while the stripers were running at a depth of 125-feet. A rainy day and an extra 20 feet of water made for poor conditions.
