Meeting Recap (November 11th, 2017)

We hope that you enjoyed the meeting, and were inspired to pick up some fabric and start sewing. Here is a recap in case you missed something.

  • Krista, our Treasurer, gave us the updated financial info and reminded everyone that this and December are your last opportunities to pay your 2018 dues.

  • Jessica, our Secretary, announced our membership numbers.
  • Kristy, our President, reminded everyone that Region 3 (which includes us) of The MQG now has a new representative (Heather Kinion @fire4hairlady); whom we look forward to collaborating with during her term. 

  • Several volunteers helped collect the Raffle Items that our members donated for our annual December ticket raffle.  As a reminder, it is not too late to donate, just be sure that it is something our members would be willing to "fight over", as this is a fundraiser after all.

  • We are thrilled to announce that Gayle Larson will be our next Treasurer for the upcoming term. 

2018 & 2019 Board
 President :  Jessica Schunke

  • Committee opportunities were discussed and Jessica created an easy to use sign-up sheet; which was emailed to all current members.  

  • If you are interested in participating in the QuiltCon Quilt Show, please be sure that you finish and submit your entry by the November 30th due date. 

  • Interested in helping to piece together our QuiltCon Charity Quilt, please check your inbox as a recent announcement was made.

:: November and December is when continuing members should pay their 2018 dues ($40). We accept cash, check and now Credit Card *with an additional nominal fee.

:: Remember we cannot have a December Ticket Raffle without your donated items, so please remember to bring them to November's meeting. As always we are looking for top quality modern fabric, handmade items, books, patterns, knitting/crochet items, quilting-related items, etc.  These should be items that your fellow members are "fighting" to get their hands on. Please be respectful and do not use this event as a way to clear out your trash-able 1990s quilting magazines, old tangled thread, etc. To see how this event works, check out this link from 2013.

In exchange for your total donation, you will be issued a set number of tickets in December based on the below table. 

If the estimated Retail value of your entire donation is…
$10 or less = 5 Tickets
$11 - $30 you receive 10 Tickets
$31 - $50 you receive 15 Tickets
$51 and up = 20 tickets
