November 8, 2014 Possum Town Quilters Meeting

President Patti called our meeting to order.  There were 21 members present and we welcomed two visitors, Dee W., and Janice B.

Our Christmas party will be Sat. Dec 6, 10:30-2:00, at Flint Hill United Methodist Church at 101 Old Honnoll Mill Road. All are reminded to bring their WIP projects for Carol to mark off.

Our next quilt to be donated to Habitat for Humanity will be presented Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2:00. Rita and Diane will represent PTQ to give quilt to the family. (see below)

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)

Show and Tell.  Enjoy!
