We have one open spot Wed, Thurs, Saturday in the Quilt Con rooms. As of Sewing Saturday, we are up to 33 members. The National Guild dues have gone up, we need to re-evaluate dues for 2019. We will propose that National Dues are going up 20%, we would like to raise our dues to $30 for 2019 with an early renewal of $25 through January for existing members. This will be proposed to the entire guild. Dues haven't been raised by National since 2013, so we do not anticipate another raise in the near future.
Vicki and Peggy have been posting to the Facebook page. Pat made kits for the new charity block. There are kits for two quilts.
For fundraising, we would like to look at doing a Brews to Benefits event. We will discuss this at the meeting. Poster board on what is modern? Maybe do an event in late October and discuss upcoming option. Possibly auction a mini at the event.
We will probably need more new member bags. Trina will look into where we can donate pillowcases. We need to bring round robins out during the meeting - maybe tack up before the meeting and discuss at the beginning.
Raise starting prices of auction items by $5 to include first-class shipping to the contiguous US.
Make it Modern Challenge will be released this month. We need to discuss modern elements at the meeting.
Prep for Longarming Presentation will be in August. The ironing board workshop will be in November. We are planning on doing a sign-up at the September meeting. The workshop will probably be at Threaded Needle Too. Amanda will prepare the Guild Banner kits for the August sewing saturday, which will be due back by the October meeting.
