Dues of $20 dollars were paid by interested members. If you didn’t bring your dues this meeting, please bring them to the Feb. meeting.
By-laws were discussed. There are some grammatical errors that need to be fixed. The by-laws were approved by all members in good standing (those that paid their dues). Junior membership as well as children at sewing Saturdays or Workshops was tabled for a later date to discuss.
All members approved opening a bank account at Red Stone Federal Credit Union.
In May we will be displaying modern quilts at the library. Eli will lead the effort with Jen and Karen assisting. We will look at displaying the Alzheimer’s quilts and also the name of the club in quilt letters. The display size is 76 x 43h and 16 d. We can also put up quilts in other places in the library.
Demo – using washable school glue when binding – no need to pin. Cut the binding 2 ¼ inch if using a quarter inch foot or 2 ½ inches if using a 3/8" walking foot. Iron the binding in half. Sew the binding on the quilt. Flip the binding to the back. Use washable glue on the sewing line, fold down binding and iron with a dry iron. Then on the front side, stitch in the ditch and you will have a nice looking binding.
Fern showed the December and 2 blocks for Jan on her BOM.
