A New Adventure For Pine Needle Quilters

A new year, a new idea and here we are.  As a new resource for our group, Laurie and Diana have volunteered to set up a blog and use this as a venue for almost all the information for our group.  After we get this set up and the bugs worked out, we hope to offer a lot of current information and with the capacity to change it quickly and as needed. 
In the future, we hope to offer links to Block of the Month programs offered on the web, upcoming quilt shows, locations and links to local quilt shops, and fun places to visit both in reality and on the web.  Also, we want to feature our ongoing projects such as our Mystery Quilt sponsored by Deanna, soldier quilts, challenges, demos and possible tutorials.  A wonderful feature of this blog could also be photos from our glorious show and tells that we have each month, we plan on getting pictures and using them on this blog.
We can also use this blog to update on progress of our own quilt show and we think it will be very helpful for that.
Now we need your help on this too.  We would like photos of your quilts that have been entered in shows, quilting adventures such as your retreats, or trips to quilt shows or shops.  We need you to keep us updated on shows, interesting links, BOM programs, and information from our subgroups such as the Pint Sized Ladies and Kathy's Flower Girls.  Really,this blog is what you help us make it.  
One of the nice features of a blog is that you can leave comments.  So please do that.  Also, if you go in our profile, you will find an email address to send information and photos to.
We would like to thank Rita for her work on our previous website, it was a great experience.  Also to those who kept up lists of BOM's, those who worked on the newsletter and to those who contribute so greatly to our guild.
