Yesterday I went to a small quilt show put on by a guild I used to belong to. The membership in this guild is dwindling and it has sure affected the quality of their show! While most of the quilts were nicely done, there were not nearly as many as in years past. Kinda sad actually. It was nice seeing some of the ladies who still belong and they all asked me to come back, but that is not going to happen. Funny thing happened though. I met one of their newer members & found out she grew up about 25 miles from where I grew up in Michigan. She & her husband decided to move to MO to buy a farm although I don't quite understand why they didn't stay in Michigan to do that as there are just as many farms there as there. I don't think quilting is going by the wayside by any means, but I do suspect more & more local quilt guilds will.
