Our log cabin raffle quilt for 2016 is in progress.

There will be a change in lunch for next year. All are asked to provide their own "sack lunch". On special occasions, a menu will be put together by members.  The Chief on a Shoestring money ($379.60) will be kept for use.  There was a motion and second for all these changes to start in January 2015.

Tonya gave the treasurer report.  It was approved as read. After this meeting, Tonya turned over all the Treasurer's information to our new treasurer, Judy, to start in Dec for the 2015 year. Thanks, Tonya, for your hard work and dedication. 

Reminder to those doing the magnolia wall hanging, it is due at January meeting.

Thanks Judy for our demo on doing hanging sleeves. This will come in handy for all.

After our meeting, we surprised Tonya with a baby shower for her soon son-to-be, Caleb.  He is to arrive January 6, 2015. Best of luck, Tonya.  (pictures below)
