The Conejo Valley Quilters are fortunate enough to have a very talented, very generous (with her time) Webmistress, Anne Weiner. Let’s learn a bit more about Anne and what exactly does a Webmistress do?
As Anne tells it, back in 2007 she was visiting her daughter, who asked her to attend a beginning quilt class with her. Anne went and got hooked! About a year and several quilts later, she decided to join a quilt guild and found the Conejo Valley Quilters. At the very first meeting she attended she volunteered to handle the Web site. She also joined a mini group, the Ya Ya Sewing Sisters. Anne says she has learned a lot by associating more closely with amazingly talented women and participating in year-long projects. She has made many quilts over the years, too many to count. The quilt she is the most proud of is a t-shirt quilt she made for her daughter-in-law. It featured t-shirts her daughter-in-law collected while playing fastpitch softball.
Anne has been in charge of the guild Web site for the past eight years. It is a very important job as it is the Conejo Valley Quilt guild’s presence to the quilting world. Anne uploads photos and edits pages each month. She even transferred our Web site from one Web host to another--no easy task--even with her son-in-law’s help. The CVQ Web site contains a lot of news and information to inform not only guild members, but anyone who might be interested in Conejo Valley Quilters. The site displays our monthly meeting photos, pictures of quilts from our past quilt shows, a members information page, and much, much more! Anne is in charge of updating and maintaining all of that! If you haven’t done so recently, be sure and check all the pages of the Web site and see what Anne has been up to. If you can, send Anne an email and thank her for all her hard work! Thank you so much for all you do, Anne. We appreciate you!
