PTQ Minutes
November 12, 2016

Meeting brought to order by Lauren Hutchins. Judy moved to waive the reading of the prior month’s minutes and Tonya seconded it…All voted in favor of it.

Treasurer’s report read and Judy reported that the proceeds from the Gathering (once all the receipts and reimbursements were completely done) will be allocated to the education fund.

MQA Gathering News:

Gathering went over wonderfully without any negative feedback and with a lot of positive praise. 

Lauren praised everyone who participated in making this gathering a great success!

We have an orphan soup ladle, a pair of scissors, 2 lights, and some extension cords that were used during the gathering that were not claimed … so if you are missing yours please contact Judy or Lauren.

A Stars quilt that was taught by Barbara and done in blues, purples and greens on front with a floral backing that was on display was not claimed so if you are missing it please contact Judy.

The winner of the first guild raffle quilt called “Hearts and Gizzards”, Gwen Harris, sent a thank you note and donated a quilt frame to our guild.

Library Info…
Christmas tree Decorating:

Guild members set November 29, at 2 pm, to be when we decorate the tree at the Columbus Lowndes Public Library. The theme is Red, Gold, and Green. If you would like to make some quilty ornaments to update and add to the current PTQ collection, please complete them and get them to Lauren before Nov. 29 or bring them with you to the Library on Nov. 29. If you plan to participate in decorating our tree, please contact Lauren to volunteer.  And please remember to stop by library on December 8th to vote for your favorite tree!  Invite your friends, neighbors, anyone you know to view the Festival of Trees.

Ruby spoke to guild of a Christmas ball decoration (which she showed) that was gifted to her as a possible idea of what you could make for the tree…there are a lot of you tube videos on these kind of things if you would like to get some extra ideas or help.  Some ideas were also posted to the PTQ Facebook page.

If you want to carpool or caravan, meet at Lowe's before 10:00 am so that the group can pull out by 10 sharp! Contact Lauren if you wish to join the group so she will know how many will be meeting to travel together.  Group will be leaving at 10:00 sharp,
