We are all concerned about the Covid-19 virus spreading through Washington State. Because of CDC concerns over gatherings during this time we have cancelled all general and special meetings. The FIQ Quilt Show was cancelled for 2020. The Quilt Walk has also been cancelled. We are waiting for guidance on when we can start meeting again. See President's message below and raffle quilt information.

President's Message (abbreviated from the August Newsletter)
There will be no in person meetings for this year. There will be no dues for the upcoming year. Your Fidalgo Island Quilters Guild is still alive! I started a FIQ On-line Gathering on Mondays at 1:30 p.m., a zoom meeting for show and share and general chat between members. Frequency is every two weeks. I will be sending out the zoom information prior to each meeting. (contact Nancy Anders to be on the email list firstname.lastname@example.org) -- Bruce Fairbanks, FIQ President
Tree of Life Raffle Quilt--One thing we needed to do during this time is draw for our raffle quilt. We were not able to sell a lot of tickets due to restrictions, but we did have the quilt out for several events before we were shut down. By law we had a raffle and needed to do a drawing on the designated date of Sept. 14th. President Bruce Fairbanks got a group of members together on a zoom call and had his wife pull the winning ticket. The winner is Joy Neal. Joy is a long time member of FIQ and chair of the 2020 Quilt Show--moved now to 2022. Congratulations to Joy.
