Possum Town Quilters, August 2014

August 9, 2014, Possum Town Quilters Minutes

President Patti called our meeting to order and welcomed all.  We had 19 members present with one guest, Linda W.

Our September birthdays are: Linda D and Gwin Edie- 18th.  Happy Birthday to all our quilters!  Hope you all had a wonderful day.

DATE CHANGE for September.  We will not be meeting on Sept 13, but will meet on Sept 20th at 9:30. This is due to building being used for a class, so we got moved.

There was no new business to discuss this month.

Old Business:

Judy gave us the status on our Habitat for Humanity.  Our next house will be ready in late September and we will need 3 quilts. It is always an honor for us to go to these dedications and present a quilt to the family.

On September 20, we will display our Civil War blocks and vote for Viewers Choice, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Thanks to all who participated.

We will also show our updates of our 2015 Ultimate Guild Challenge (Southern Magnolia theme).

A nomination committee will start the process for electing our 2015 officers, so be prepared to present your thoughts on this.  

SAVE the DATES!  Julia and our Education committee have been working hard on setting up some quilting classes for our guild.  As of today, we have scheduled Favin Glover on March 28, 2015 and Susan Cleveland on November 14, 2015.  More information will be forth coming as time progresses.

Tonya gave our treasurer report and it was accepted as read and seconded.

Judy announced our last step in our Medallion quilt will be pin wheels.  If you have any questions, please contact her.

Our lunch for September 20 will be prepared by: CC, Carol and Brenda.

              Enjoy our Show and Tell!!
