April  Minutes

April 13, 2013

President Terry called our meeting to order at 9:30 a.m. and welcomed all. 

We had 21 members present and no guests.

Old Business:

The RAC is downsizing the center's storage area, so guild is consolidating our areas to fewer shelves.  After membership looked over old books and magazines, we voted to give remainder to Columbus Library to shelve or sell at their event, "Friends of the Library".

Our treasurer, Tonya, gave her report, which was approved as read.
A reminder was given to those who had not paid their yearly dues of $15.00 that by end of April you would be dropped from membership if not paid up.

The Accu Go cutter was repaired for $52.00. Membership voted to pay this.

Our quilting at the Columbus Pilgrimage was a great success this year. We got our quilt half done with hand quilting.  We quilted at 7 houses with 9 members participating.  Thanks to all who quilted and shared their talent with all our visitors who stopped at our table. I, myself, was given a tour of , Shadow Lawn, the home where I quilted.

The Columbus Cultural Heritage Foundation gifted our guild a donation for participating at the Artesian Alley on Saturday.  What a wonderful surprise!

Look below at 12 of our Alzheimer quilts that our members have done.

We are excited to be nominating Marjorie for MQA Outstanding Quilter. Marjorie has done some beautiful quilts in her 90 years. We are so proud of her and her accomplishments. We are glad she is a member of our guild.

New Business:

Lauren gave out information for our PTQ 2013 Challenge. Each packet contained a swatch of "challenge" fabric for  the cost of $5.00.  Exact colors are to be used that are in the swatch. You may use as many colors as you want, just so they match exactly. Your block may be pieced or appliqued or a combination of the two. There is no specific theme for the block. Different sizes listed in your packet can be given. You may do more than one. Block(s) are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.  If you have questions concerning this challenge, contact one of the committee members (Lauren, Judy, Watana or CC).

The Common Thread will be coming out early May. It will have classes listed, suggestions on where to stay, and meal choices. Be on the lookout and plan to attend!

Our 2013 Ultimate Guild  challenge quilts were displayed this year during our Pilgrimage at the Welcome Center and were to be voted on for viewer's choice. Those in attendance at our meeting walked over to see them all displayed. We had lots of positive comments. We even made the daily paper with a great article.  Hope you all got to see it.

Judy gave a demo on how to make a 4" AQS hanging sleeve for a quilt. Thanks Judy.

Our meal was provided by Carol, CC and Shirley. Thanks lady for a great, delicious meal.

May meal will be provided by the guild with pizza.  Diane will provide a decorated cake. Hope to see you all.
