October 20, 2015

OK.. gals I think I am caught up.... thanks for your patience with me.

The meeting was called to order by VP Betty Morris  with 8 members present.

Minutes were read by Charmayne and approved

Shelly gave the treasurers report and it was also approved.

Roxie reported Oakland will probably now take 10 quilts.  There was some discussion on where else to deliver quilts.  Shelly will check and see if Atlantic would like some.  

Old business.... we turned in Christmas ornaments.

Charmayne showed us her beautiful table runner made for the CLR fabric from last month.  She said it will be on her Thanksgiving table...... It was so cute. Great job Charmayne.  See photo below.

Fran was not at the meeting ,but she had sent her block and instructions for the sampler quilt.  

New business.  There was discussion about what to do if there was bad weather.  We talked about a phone tree and decided everyone could just check for themselves... if the weather was questionable just stay home and stay safe.  If there was no school,  no meeting for sure.

Charmayne said that she would take the office of Vice president and all approved.. Thanks Charmayne for stepping up... you will do a great job.  

CLR for next month is 3, 5 inch blocks of winter fabric

lots of pretty show and share.....

Lunch was served by Sally.

Next meeting will be Nov.16..

I am back... these are still late being published... Let me know if there are any corrections.

The meeting was called to order by Dorine with 12 members present.

Minutes were read and approved and Treasurers report was also approved.  There was only one bill with a reimbursement to Roxie for the Shop hop trip.

Roxie reported that 5 persons attended the sew day.  We have 39 quilts that will be taken to various placed.  Oakland only wants 3-4, so we will have many to distribute to other homes or charities.

Old business included collecting Christmas ornaments and a reminder to keep making them for the tree in Dorine's shop.  There was a discussion about delivering the quilts.  No time was set yet, so we will discuss it again at a later meeting.  

Christmas party will start at 6:00pm at Dorine's.  Bring a finger food, wine ( if you like) $10 homemade exchange, and a gift for your secret quilter, if you like.

Sally shared her block for the Sampler quilt and Fran will have hers for Oct.  and Dorothy for November.  

We had a lot of beautiful show and tell quilts as always.... great job girls.

New Business    Sharon made a motion to contribute $75 to the Food Pantry in Avoca and Fran seconded.

Sally was also collecting quilts for Carsten's Farm days again this year.

Shelly suggested  we should plan a trip to Missouri Star Quilt Co  in Hamilton, Mo... No date could be agreed upon, so it was tabled.

Clr game for Oct will be 3, 9 inch strips of Christmas fabric

Food pantry will not be collected since we are making a donation.

Next meeting is Oct 20th. 

Fran served yummy snacks.

August meeting.

Still playing catch up with these minutes.  I am still MIA.. so Shelly provided the notes for this post. Hope I get everything right... Let me know if there are corrections.

Meeting was called to order by Dorine .   We had two guest present Friends of Shelly's Shirley Haupert and her guest Pat Marshall.  We hope they enjoyed the meeting and will want to join our group.   Secretary's and Treasurer's reports were read and approved.  There was no activity in July for the treasurer, so balance stayed the same.

Old business included Elaine showing her CLR sampler that she made from last months blocks.  

Betty had the block for August a double pinwheel for the Sampler quilt.  Fran also passed out her blocks for the charity project along with pattern and focus fabric.  

There was another discussion about 2016 officers.  Motion for 1 year term for President and vice president and  secretary.  Treasurer will stay the same ( until Shelly decides not to do it anymore.) 
Sharon offered to be nominated for Secretary . Betty Morris will move up to President.  All approved.  We will just need someone to take the VP position.

New business included Roxie telling us about her friend Charlene McGlenn who has some patterns in Keepsake quilting called Island Batik's.  They are miniatures. ( ooooo I must check those out)

The shop hop was well attended and they found 22 barn quilts along the way.

Doreen donated  a book to the group "Quilters Roadmap "  for anyone to use.  Roxie has it now.

LRC game for Sep will be 3, 2 1/2 inch strips of fall colors.  Our guest Penny Marshall won the CLR game tonight and received the florals

  Food pantry items will be cold cereal.

The annual Christmas party will be at Dorine's on Dec 8th, with a Christmas exchange of $10.00 a homemade item.  Also if you have a gift for your Secret Quilter we will exchange those also. Appetizers will be brought by all....

Meeting was adjourn and a delicious lunch ( I am sure it was delicious) was served, but not sure by whom.....  

July 2015 meeting.

 Ladies, I apologize for the lateness of these minutes.  I was out of town and everything got put on hold, then I was out of sync ( do any of you ever feel that way) ... so now I am going to spend a few minutes and catch up.

Shelly took notes for me , so these will be brief notes to you , but for the record they will be here.

Dorine opened the meeting and minutes from the Secretary and Treasurer were read and approved.

Elaine passed out her choice for the Sampler block.   A cute little rail fence... Elaine I thought you would pick a bear claw.   Everyone is reminded to keep working on your sampler...

Clr was played and I think from these notes you should bring 5 inch florals next month.

Fran passed out her continuing blocks to be made into our charity quilts.  This months was named Navajo block and again she gave us the focus fabric.  Fran we really appreciate you doing this.  It is so much fun to see what everyone comes up with.

In October we will have the nomination of officers.  It was decided to have 1 year for President and Vice president and Secretary.  Shelly said she would keep the treasurers job.

Meeting was closed and lunch was served...... yum... I bet.... not sure who, but thanks.
