ELECTED OFFICERS FOR 2019
• Returning President: Yolanda Crawford. I am a Grand Junction native and learned to sew from my grandmother and mother. I am a retired math teacher and am currently working part time for School District 51 in the Career and Tech Ed office helping secure academic credit for students in some of those elective courses.
I have been quilting for a number of years but have gotten more serious about it in the last 10 years. I have attended two McCalls International Quilting Symposiums and A Texas Sew-In both of which had national teachers. I have also taken numerous classes and workshops from outstanding teachers. I believe quilting is a wonderful way to express yourself and share your talents to enrich the lives of others.
• Vice President: Hi, Kathy Morgan here! I am fairly new to SSQ and I look forward to getting to know more of you as I serve as the Guild’s vice-president. I began quilting in 1987 when I took a continuing education class through the school district in Plano, Texas. The pattern was “Trip Around the World” using a strip piecing method. That little quilt led to another and another!! It still hangs in my sewing room as a reminder of my “humble beginnings!” I am so pleased to be a member of SSQ and to be associated with all of the wonderfully talented folks in this guild. You have inspired me to learn and grow as a quilter!
• Treasurer: My name is Connie Edwards. I was born in Houston, Tx., where I lived until I was married. I have been married to Sheldon for almost 35 years and we have two beautiful children, Warren and Ashley. Ashley is married to a wonderful young man named Steven. I also lived in Norman, Ok. and in Tulsa, Ok., where our children were born. My family and I lived overseas in Saudi Arabia for 14 years. I am an Elementary Teacher and I have taught in the U.S. and in Saudi Arabia for a total of 20 years. I am a substitute teacher here in G. J. I am a member of two philanthropic sororities and I was a Girl Scout Leader for many years. I love to cook, sew, bowl, and dance. I have always wanted to learn how to quilt. I was introduced to quilting by my wonderful friend and neighbor, Nancy Kowal. I have lived here for two years now. I love G. J. and I love the people.
• Secretary: My name is Eva Hinkle. I am running for secretary of the guild.
I have a degree from Colorado Northwestern Community College in accounting. I started sewing clothes in 1970 and quilts in 1984. I am very vested in keeping guilds going so that we can learn from each other. I also want to be sure that our art continues down with the generations. The only way to do that is to keep our guilds going.
