April Meeting Minutes

April 11, 2015

President Carol called the meeting to order.   She thanked Julia for hosting Flavin Glover while she was here teaching Possum Town Quilters the Patchwork Houses class and all the ladies that pitched in and did clean-up when the class was finished.

Treasurer's Report
     Judy gave the treasurer's report.  There was no discussion on the Treasurer's Report and it was approved as presented.

Old Business
     Susan Cleveland Class (Nov 14, 2015)--There are still 10 slots available, be sure to sign up if you want to
     take the class.  If no one from the guild signs up, we may open it up to others to attend.

     Linda D. asked about the Possum Town Guild Directory.  Carol and Lauren are working on it now.

New Business
    The RAC needs our area of the facility on May 9th ( our usual meeting time) so we will need to decide when/where to hold our meeting.  There was some discussion and Keri offered to host it on May 9th.  A vote was taken and all but one agreed to hold the meeting at Keri's.  It will be a pot luck with salads and desserts and all members are encouraged to bring a dish to share. 

Judy brought up an opportunity for guild members to enter quilts into the Greater Jackson, MS Quilt Celebration, Sept 11-13.  Entries are being taken now and the first 150 to sign up will have their quilts exhibited.  Entry fee is $10 and Judy has entry forms if you are interested.  Quilts entered must have been completed after Jan 1, 2012.

Julia reported our Raffle Quilt raised $1100 and the RAC management said it was a very beautiful quilt!  Thanks to all who worked on the quilt to make it such a success.

Carla updated us on our Charity Quilts.  The Relay for Life quilt ticket sales have started and Mott will update us on how much is raised from the raffle.  Carla will contact Mott for info on how to purchase tickets.  It was decided to take a few of our charity quilts to Artisan's Day to help raise funds.  Please think of possible recipients of our charity quilts.

Carla asked if it might be possible for the guild to make a quilt for a local organization's fund raising auction?  There was some discussion and Carla said she would follow up with the organization for more details.  

Show and Tell 

Julia's Family Circle-Farmer's Delight quilt was chosen for the cover the Klaudeen Hansen Quilt Art 2016 calendar.  Judy's My Orca Bay quilt was chosen for the first week of May in the calendar too.  Two quilts from one guild in the same calendar!  We have some very talented ladies here in Columbus, MS.  If you are going to Paducah, there will be a calendar signing on Wednesday in Paducah, hope to see you there!
