October 21st meeting

Our meeting was called to order at 7:00pm with 9 members present.  Minutes from the Sept 16th meeting were read by our secretary, Charmayne and approved as read.  Shelly gave the treasurer's report.  Our balance was given and mentioned that one check from the shop ( I originally wrote sock hop.... showing my age) hop is still outstanding. 

Roxie reported that the quilts will be delivered on Dec.10th.  Anyone wanting to go along should contact her. Also any quilts unfinished or being stored should be given to Roxie as soon as possible.  There won't be another work or sewing day until January.  November and December are such busy months for everyone.  We should now be working on our 40x40 quilts and our walker bags.

Old business included a reminder of the Christmas party held at Dorine's.  Remember to bring a homemade gift for a member exchange.  Some quilters are diabetic and some have allergies, so keep that in mind if baking something.  Approximately a $10 limit on these gifts.. Also bring the gift for your secret sister as they will be revealed at this time.  If you are unable to attend don't forget your secret sister.  We all need to remember our obligation , if you took a name you should try to fulfill your gifts. 

Roxie also had our program for October. She showed us how to make the cutest origami bags.  She gave us all a pattern so we can make them at home... Great idea for Christmas gifts.

There were only a few show and share quilts...

all very nice... and we enjoyed seeing them.

We played Quilto.... who was the winner??? I think Elaine.... she will get our turkey/thanksgiving material to make something with.  Next month we will bring a 10" square , Blue and white, snow/snowflake/snowman fabric.

Betty Morris will have the November program.... "surprise bags"   a pattern I think she found in Paducah.

Remember UFO's are due in November... If you have had to give them as a gift... be sure to bring a photo.  Next meeting will be November 18th.

See you then.....
