Sew and Tell
Sherry discussed programming. The calendar has been set for this year. Diane and Elain will be hosting trunk shows. We will have 5 challenges this year as well as trips and programs for each menu. We have a new sewing bee on the third Sunday from 1 - 6 starting in February. There will be a BOM catch-up day at the February sewing Saturday.
The fundraising auction was a huge success. We will get a payout from Zazzle this month.
There is a new charity block for this quarter. It is a square in a square that makes two blocks.
We will be changing the dues structure so that it is full price before June 30th and half price the rest of the year.
Each committee described their committee and what we do and what we need help with.
We are introduced the first challenge - Black and White with a Pop! - you can only use black, white, and one other color. The reveal will be at our April meeting.
Our program was Sewing Spaces and Organization, presented by Sherry. There are free printables for quilting planning on Patchwork Posse. We discussed goal setting. They need to be realistic and measurable. Make small achievable goals. Everyone shared their own tips. A few members shared photos and descriptions of heir sewing spaces.
