With sadness we say goodbye to longtime guild member Carol Thurman of Claremore, OK. Carol has actively served the guild in many roles since the day she first joined, including past President and Quilt Show Chair. Carol won many awards for her quilts, particularly for her exceptional applique skills. She also excelled at embroidery and hand quilting. Carol particularly enjoyed teaching her talents to others. Her guild friends will miss her greatly.
A Memorial Service for Carol is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017 @ 1:00 p.m. at Lifechanger Church, 2221 Cornerstone Ave., Claremore, OK.

We’re proud to have had Glen as a member of the guild. He made many beautiful cross-stitched quilts to donate to children in the hospital. He surprised Diane when she returned from visiting family with his very first scrap quilt, which he entered in our 2011 quilt show. Glen completed his goal of making each of his family members a quilt. He will be missed and our hearts and prayers are with Diane.
Glen E. Cole (November 11, 1941 – February 21, 2013)
Extra blocks from our 2011 fabric challenge were creatively set into a quilt top by Carol Furgason and given away to a guild member at our annual July luncheon. This year’s lucky winner was Roberta Watson. Congratulations, Roberta!
