Vice President, Patti, called our meeting to order at 9:30 a.m. due to the absence of our President. Patti welcomed all including our visitors, Vicky and Charity, Eloise and Marcus (Diane's mother-in-law from Meridian and her husband, who dropped by to see some quilts that had been done). There were 19 members in attendance.
May birthdays are: 8-Christine; 9-Linda B; 10-Lauren Hutchins; 13-Tonya; 14-Bettye B.
A reminder was given that our challenge blocks will be due June 4. Several blocks were turned in today and are shown below in our "show and tell" pictures.
With new members joining, several are wanting our membership pictures and short bios updated so all will get to know each other. Joanne and Diane hope to work on that soon. Please be rewriting your bio and attach a picture and send to Diane.
Members were also reminded to take another look at the old books and magazines before they were given away.
Donna and Patti presented an idea to the club about having several groups in guild to participate in a charm swap. There was a lot of interest, so they are going to get the instructions together, dates, quantity and info on material and get out to those who want to do it.
Committee Reports: Inventory was in good shape. We have 5 quilts completely finished and at least 4 more partially done.
Treasurer's report was given by Tonya and approved by all. Patti brought before the club that Diane had bought a coffee pot and all supplies for the guild. It was voted that guild should reimburse her and charge 25 cents per cup of coffee. The money would go into the meal fund.
Tonya mentioned she had sent out new list with all members and their contact information. If any changes or questions, please give her a call.
Annette read a cute article on " Battle of the Batting" dated in 1997. Thanks, Annette, we enjoyed it!
Carol gave us a demo on how to do a "project saver", where you roll up your project in this material/mailing tube, so you can keep all your material pieces together. Great way to keep it organized. Thanks, Carol.
Wantana mentioned to guild how they so appreciated all the comforting words, cards, calls, etc., for her daughter's loss.
Our next meeting will be our Sit and Sew meeting on Saturday, May 25 at 9:30 at the RAC. Hope to see you all there.
Lunch was pizza provided by the guild and a "Happy Mother's Day" cake by Diane.
Lunch will be provided by Carol, Rita and need one more person for June 8.
