Library Display Boards
Reminder that this spring we will be decorating the display boards in the Main library. Please work on some modern quilts to go in there. Suggestion.. we could turn it in to an Alzheimer Art Quilt donation board and try to sell the pictures directly there then we can donate the money? Suggestion - From the Book, Out of the Box, make portraits of ourselves, family, pets, etc
Amanda Conger has offered to be treasurer. She was unanimously voted in. She will be treasurer for the rest of the year and 2013.
Elections - there was discussion about the upcoming year for President, Vice President & Secretary. We should have elections in January but for the next year, we will plan to have them in November so that January will be a clean start with offices.
Dues - Deb's mother had a suggestion for our $10 to make prorating easier - it would be $1 a month remaining in the year or $10, whichever is less. It was voted and unanimously agreed to change the dues to $12 a year so that prorating is easy, $1 a month.
Dues collections will start at the December meeting. Dues will cover the calendar years.
Upcoming Sewing Saturdays..
Workshops will resume in 2013. If anyone has a project that they'd like to have as a workshop next year, please post pictures in the Facebook group.
Deb Will contact Amber about the 2013 calendar for booking the room we currently meet at.
Silly/Dirty Santa - bring a wrapped $10 quilt related gift (find great deals to make your $10 go further!) Make a sewn/quilted ornament or decoration to act as a gift tag.
Please bring snacks.
Tammy gave a demo of sewing inchies on to a foundation for exact placement on the inchie quilt she is working on. She used a product called Pellon's Quilter's Grid that is available in stores. One side is a grid and the other side is fusible. Sew all the squares in one dirction, iron then sew in the opposite direction (horizontal then vertical)
She is looking for donations of cut 1" squares or 1 strips of fabric. Color or print does not matter.
There will be no demo for December's meeting.
Eli's husband will not be able to make our logo. As soon as we create a logo, we can contact Green Pea Press who does tshirts quicker and more accurately than Eli's husband, who is just learning the process.
Fern wrote instructions on the board for the block of the month quilt. We are on month 2.
