October 12, 2013 Meeting

President Terry called our October meeting to order.  We were thrilled to have three visitors today - they were Maureen, Emily and Gwen.  After our meeting Gwen joined our PTQ.  Welcome Gwen.  It is going to be a pleasure working with you.  We had 16 members present.

Our October birthdays are: Watana-6, CC-9, Carolyn-16, Ebba-17, Bobbi-25 and Annette-30.  Hope all you special ladies have a wonderful birthday.

Old Business:

Our treasurer report was given by Tonya. There was no discussion, so it was approved as read.

The drawing for our quilt was done in Corinth, MS at our MQA meeting.  Our winner was a friend of Judy S. from our guild. He was Mike Covey from Tuscaloosa.  He works for McDonald's. We made $1,009.00 from all the tickets sold and this will go into our Educational fund to be able to get another National teacher to come and teach us a new skill in quilting.  Be thinking about who you would like to have come.

Our next quilt to raffle will be our "Wedding Ring" quilt.  It is almost ready for us to start hand quilting.

We had Lauren and Brenda go over some details for our "Round Robin" quilt that we each will be doing on our own.  Those who had their "center" for their quilt got up and showed them.  See below in our pictures.  Our next assignment is to add a border of your choice and size. Each month at our first meeting we will be given our next step.

New Business:

Our nominating committee presented the suggested slate of new officers for 2014.  Each was presented and asked if there was someone you wanted to add before it went for a vote.  There were no changes to the slate given.  Our new PTQ officers for January 2014 are: President-Patti M.; Vice President-Carol J.; Secretary-Diane S.; and Treasurer-Tonya S.

Our Inventory committee updated us that we have three quilts ready for charity.

Patti mentioned we are planning for a "fractured quilt" class at Elm Lake Golf course once date can be determined.  Each will bring their 4 panels and work on your own project.  We will be able to help each other. So be getting your panels so you will be ready to start.

We also set our date for our Christmas Party at Elm Lake on Saturday,
Dec 7, so mark your calendars.  More details to come.

Thanks to Patti, Diane and Mary Ann for our great meal today.  Our meal for November 9 will be Brenda-dessert, Barb-main course, and Lauren-salad. 

Enjoy our show and tell!!
