Greetings Ladies! At our last meeting, we had several of our officers out due to various planned and unplanned situations. A BIG thanks to Judy S. for stepping in and running the meeting. I would have been in an absolute panic without her😊. Unfortunately, I had to leave early as well, so I am hoping that I get everything right in the blog. Hopefully, we will all be back good as new for the next meeting which is April 14th. We had a huge crowd at the meeting and had one visitor at the time, Carol's sister, Linda.
The previous minutes were approved as posted to the blog and the treasurer's report was also approved as read. Anyone that wanted to participate in the Goal Challenge should have turned in their list of goals along with the $5.00 to go in the pot for the one lucky lady that will complete the most goals. (I'm going to work really hard for that).
Today's meal is fried chicken. The next meeting will feature ham provided by the guild, Julia is doing a dessert and Carla is making potato salad. Thanks for volunteering ladies!
The fat quarter swap for today includes the colors of green and gold or yellow. Today, any who brought fat quarters to the swap will pick at the same tie. NO FIGHTING, please. The color for the fat quarter swap in April will be pink and purple. Be sure to bring yours to the meeting! It's a lot of fun!
The nominating committee for the next year in Tonya, Barb and
Terri. Please be thinking of officers. The secretary's position will most likely be for a two year term (if you will have me). Michelle will be moving off as this is her second year.
Don't forget that Artisan's Day is Saturday, April 7th. Thanks Ebba, for being in charge of that one. We will be tying the Heart Quilt for Artisan's day. It will last until approximately 2:00. The PTQ booth will be in the parking lot behind the former Front Door/Back Door restaurant. Set-up will be at 8:00. If you can't stay all day, plan to come when you can and stay as long as you want.
The Bibb and Tucker Sew Op was held at the public library where participants were provided to make a 7 inch block if they wished.
The Buttahatchee Barn Quilt Tour will be April 10th at the Methodist Church in Caledonia. It will be open to tour and the guild has been asked by Rita W. to provide quilts to drape over the pews. She would also like to have hostesses to serve mint tea. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Rita.
Rita W. is half way finished with the Barn Quilt for the Art Center. Judy S. has done a beautiful job on the quilt to complement it.
Naomi had a proposal for the guild regarding the Double Wedding Ring Quilt. She would like to remove it as the raffle quilt as she is presently in the process of putting it back together. This is a long and tedious process. Once the quilt is finished, she would like to give the top to the PTQ member who has been active and helped with the sit and sews. A motion was made and a second was heard, so the proposal/motion passed.
The June Gathering this year will feature Bonnie Hunter. The dates for the Gathering are May 31st - June 2nd. Your dues for MQA should be paid before April 1st. Bonnie's classes will be limited to 50 participants per class. She will be teaching 3 classes. Since the number of class participants is limited, you will need to register separately for her class. The registration amount is $50.00. You should mail a check in with your registration and include a self-addressed stamped envelope. This is not a first come first serve opportunity. All registration forms must be sent in by April 15th. Participants for the classes will be selected through a drawing on April 19th. If your name if not chosen, your check will be returned in the self addressed stamped envelope you sent in. If you are chosen, your Suppy List will be returned in your envelope. If you are selected to take one of the classes, you will need to purchase a book at the Gathering. There will be 11 other classes offered at the Gathering, one of which is a mystery quilt. On Saturday, you will receive a free pattern.
That looks like all that I have in my notes. If I have left out anything, I apologize. Please do not hesitate to let me know. Until next time, HAPPY QUILTING!
