President Terry called our meeting to order. We had 23 members and one guest, Kathy H. Welcome Kathy, we hope you will join us again soon.
August birthdays are: Brenda C - 9th; Rita W - 10th and Donna H - 15th. Ladies, we all hope you have special birthdays.
Tonya, our treasurer, read last month's report. A motion was made to accept what was read, seconded, and approved.
Our Ultimate Guild Challenge committee for 2014 will be: C.C, Terry T, Julia, Terri H, and Lauren. They will be planning for next quilt like the Tennessee Williams quilts that were done this year.
A reminder was given to all to be selling your raffle tickets for the quilt that will be given away in a drawing. This money goes into our Education fund to get us new quilting classes here in Columbus. We have Marilyn Rose coming on Saturday, August 24th at 9:15 to teach those who signed up a "Fractured quilt". Everyone is encouraged to participate in these classes, so we can have many more of these opportunities.
After the meeting today, Judy will show those who were unable to attend their class in Starkville how to paper piece their pattern called "Summer Heat" by Nancy Mahoney. A good time was had by all who attended this class.
We will be having another "Sit and Sew" at Elm Lake on Tuesday, August 13 at 3:00 for those who can attend. Bring your projects and enjoy working with your friends. The grill will be open for those who want to eat supper. Judy will work with those doing their paper piecing. All were encouraged to view the UTube video on "Connecting Threads" to help them ahead of time on this technique..
Next month those who want to participate will be starting a "Round Robin quilt". You decide on your center of your quilt and this committee will give your instructions for the next step. These quilts will not be traveling, but remain with you to add on each time you are given the next step. This will be a fun activity for all to work together and share. More information will be coming.
This month's meal was provided by: Shirley, Carol and Terri H. Thank you ladies for the delicious meal.
Next month's meal will be provided by Ebba, Julia and Sue L.
