The current charity block is changing this month. The Black and White with a Pop challenge is due tonight. The scrap challenge is ongoing. We are working on the BOM Skill builder Block 7 this month.
We are looking for wide back fabric, but the fabric we planned to buy was sold out. We are looking for another source. The guild voted to increase the spending limit for officers from $75 to $100.
We went over the new addition of the community standards, which will be posted on the website.
Challenge Reveal pictures and Sew and Tell pictures will be posted on Instagram.
We had 7 visitors tonight. We had 1 April Birthday.
We uploaded new designs and new products on the Zazzle page. Our fundraiser at BJ’s Brewhouse went well. We raised over $100. We contacted Lucky Spool about their bulk buy program, but have not heard back.
Our new charity block is a plus sign, the instructions are on the website.
A landing page has been added to the website for new members. Also, a list of member owned businesses and local quilt shops and any discounts they offer has been added. The Community Standards will be added to the website this month.

The Gee’s Bend trip is still in the works, but plans have not been finalized.
There has been enough interest in rooms at Quilt Con 2020 in Austin for one room. Anyone who hasn’t taken the survey and would like to go should contact an officer.
Plans for the June Trunk Swap / Sale are in the works. We are looking for a location.
