The meeting was called to order by President Eileen Van Dyk. The secretary’s report and Treasurer’s report were presented and accepted.
Raffle Quilt - is at Jean Potter’s waiting to be quilted. The dates for the Quilt Show will be September 22-September 23. The dates had to be changed due to a conflict with WITC’s schedule.
The name for the show is “Good Times with Quilting”
Sandy will get copies of fliers, raffle tickets to the Quilt Committee. She has also graciously volunteered to handle the vendors.
Caring Quilts – Two big quilts were tied and binding is needed on them. With the demonstration on how to apply binding we all have updated skills. Feel free to grab a quilt to bind. There is a family, by Pine Lake, that has had a house fire. We will be giving them a quilt.
The purple squares from Farm & Home were also worked on. This quilt should be finished and ready to be tied in November. Watch for an e-mail with a date.
Retreat Committee – Our retreat at Oak Forest will be January 12, 13, 14. The cost is $102. We may be able to add 1/11/18 if they do not receive a registration. No lunch would be served on January 11th. The additional day will cost $40. We will know by the December meeting if this is possible. They will determine where to place us by the number of quilters attending.
Challenge Committee – Reminder that the challenge is due next month….get working girls J
The by-law changes were discussed with changes being that we elect 4 officers for a one-year term, the calendar year will be reflected by the regular calendar. Other smaller language items which were talked about at past meetings were also read. The motion to accept these By-Law changes passed.
Officer Elections - Eileen volunteered to continue as President, Jodee volunteered to continue one more year as Secretary and Bridget also will continue another term. Barb Rogers was elected to President Elect (with help from Linda Andert) We appreciate all they have done and will continue to do. (Awesome!!)
We reviewed the survey we put together regarding things we would like to see the Quilt Guild do. Some of things have been accomplished. Other things still need to be worked on. The opinion was that the Guild has turned around and is headed in the right direction.
Farm Girl projects - Judy, Patsy, Barb, Lori and Linda had completed their 4 blocks for the Farm Girl Quilt. Linda won playing cards and thread for the drawing. Patsy and Betty Schmidt completed their 4 blocks for the Miscellaneous Farm Girl project. Betty won the drawing and received a pattern.
Demonstrations – Meg Tryba show how to apply a Faux Piping Binding. She will be e-mailing instructions for review soon.
Jean Krumm showed us how she machine stiches her binding on. Her secret…..ironing and stitching in the ditch consistently. Who knew. Thanks ladies for the learning moments J
