The Chester Piecemakers Quilt Guild held its annual October Potluck Luncheon on Oct. 12 and installed the new 2021 officers. Since March the guild has had to make major adjustments to our monthly meetings and weekly sew days. Small monthly meetings have been held in backyards with appropriate social distancing and masks. Weekly sew days have also been held in similar settings.

One of our members, Diane Morrow, has been keeping in touch with all of our members by sending out a weekly email. Quilters have been invited to respond with information about their current projects and photos if available. Since several members have recently moved away, we have enjoyed hearing about their new adventures.

We have even had several Zoom meetings over the last few months. It is surprising how all the new technology has helped us to connect with one another. Rita Isbell is our new Vice President, and she has been researching possibilities for online quilting classes/lectures that we can use.

Despite the challenges we all are facing, there is a lot of enthusiasm in our group. We are all working together to keep our guild functioning.
