Rachel will handle the rotary cutter blade bulk buy. We'll have a sign up sheet at the meeting and post on facebook or email after the meeting. Amanda and Sherry found enamel pins at Pin Peddler for the retreat. They also ordered officer pins and a few pins for prizes. Amanda wants to have her friend make a set of fussy cut templates for prizes or drawings. We want to start wearing our name tags. We need to have written position descriptions for officers and committee chairs. We would like to have this done before the end of the year. It would be good to have an initial list by the end of March.
The updated website layout is almost done. There is a #quiltconfromhome hash tag to be used on instagram during the MQG Quilt Con.
The Quilt Con charity quilt was delivered Friday by the deadline. The signage and blog post information has been submitted.
The headcount for the retreat is 17, 9 of which are members. This is a huge increase over last year. Amanda is planning to make a retreat logo to put on Zazzle for anyone who wants t-shirts or totes. Donations for the retreat gifts and prizes are coming in. Lisa has sent the deposit to Red Rooster. Amanda has bought beads, pins, and glue for custom pins, as well as baskets and enamel pins. She also has goody bag items for scrapbookers and jewelry maker. Amanda plans on finishing the retreat logo, and sending a Welcome Email. We need to have thank yous for companies who donated items. Managing multiple crafting types for door prizes: draw names, winner gets their choice of bags for their crafts. Parcel out such that each person wins one door prize. Everyone’s name is back in for the BIG door prize at the end.
Everything has been bumped back a month due to the meeting in January being cancelled. Email everyone to remind them to bring orphan blocks to the meeting. Amanda ordered charm packs squares for the Charm Square Challenge. Make sure everyone has a MQG account if they want one, then talk about the benefits in April. Highlight the resources tab. The library has changed their sign-up for the meeting room for the Sewing Saturday. The system seems better, we can have 6 meetings in a 6 month period.
