The DAMQG started a tradition of “Pay it Forward”. A member who has gone above and beyond working with and for the guild is selected. Members secretly contribute to fill a tin (usually to overflowing) and present it to the “Pay it Forward” recipient. (I foresee all the members will be recipients as some point.) This month’s recipient is Barb DeVilbiss. Barb long arm quilts all of our charity quilts and because we have such a giving group she is probably doing one at least once a month. Thanks, Barb.
We had a special guest this month – 1 month old Henry O’Malley. Congrats to our Treasurer, Amanda, on her bundle of joy.

We welcomed 2 new members and had 2 guests.
