2018 Golden Thimble Award Winner

The Golden Thimble Award is an annual award, voted on by the membership and given by the guild, to recognize a member that has given extraordinary service to the guild.

 

The membership has decided that the 2018 Golden Thimble Award should go to Nancy Yeomans for her dedicated time and efforts at the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild. Nancy goes above and beyond in service to our quilt guild, including reorganizing the facility for more efficiency and getting the by-laws reviewed and updated. Way to go, Nancy, and thank you for all you do!

Vicki Samsel, President, presented the award to Nancy Yeomans
