Come to our FALL FEVER! Quilt Show Saturday, October 7th
The meeting at St. Jude Catholic Church was called to order at 12:05 pm. by Joan, who substituted for Jean in her absence. There were 17 members present.
The minutes of the July meeting were approved.
Kate, the Treasurer, reported that the bank balance is $4,057.54. Please turn in receipts for reimbursement to Kate. Kate indicated designer fabric samples on a side table that she brought for members to take if they want to use any for projects.
Linda stated that all of the flannel blanket kits have been distributed. She would like to collect the completed blankets after Thanksgiving, unless you will be flying south for the winter before then.
Cathy will present the Trash to Treasure event for members at next week's meeting. She offered a kit of cat oven mitts and potholders for fabrication for the Quilt Show boutique, otherwise the kit will be sold as a boutique item.
As a result of Sue bringing her die cutting machine to last week's meeting, there has been interest expressed in our group to buy one for members to share. Linda suggested that discussion of this subject was likely to be lengthy and, in view of other goals to be accomplished today, that this discussion should be tabled. The consensus was to table the discussion.
Maggie will be contacting each of the quilt show sub-chairs to be sure that each has what she needs to accomplish her duties. Kay has a cash box from last show that she will bring to Maggie. Money will be collected at the show at the entrance, for donations, at the boutique, bake sale, and raffle ticket sales.
Kay and Shirley volunteered to set up the display case at the library at the beginning of September.
Jodie reported that the raffle tickets have been distributed to the members and that she has a very “cool” prize that will be awarded to the seller of the most tickets. Cathy is currently in the lead. The raffle quilt size will work on a queen- or king-size bed, about 90” x 93”. The rack—card flier shows a portion of the quilt and Linda will email a photo of the quilt for members to show to prospective raffle ticket customers.
August 24th - Trash to Treasure swap
September 7th - Robbin will repeat her applique demonstration
October 12th - Annual Luncheon at noon at Cedar Creek Club
The meeting was adjourned at 12:30 p.m. for lunch provided by Sue and Susan, after which we worked on Boutique projects.
We have received a request to change our meeting days from Wednesday to Thursday. After much input from the group, we have decided that we can accommodate the Thursday afternoon meeting request. St. Jude Catholic Church remains as our meeting location.
Lunch gathering locations will change. Our Business Meetings will now be on the third Thursday of the month beginning at 12:35 p.m.
The demonstration of an applique technique given by Robbin will be this Thursday, July 13th. The Sew days for the boutique will be on Thursday, August 17, and Thursday, September 14th. Both sessions will go until 5:00 p.m.
Thanks to everyone for your input and being flexible with your schedule. Each of you is important to our group and your willingness to adapt is much appreciated.
