January Meeting - Recap

Our Annual General Meeting was held last night, Jan. 8.  Chris @Patch Halifax graciously hosted our get-together in her thoroughly modern shop.  24 excited quilters attended.  We are very pleased to have three new members join our guild bringing our membership to just over 40 quilters.  Our President, Adrienne, presented us with a very informative, interesting Power Point detailing of the last year and projections  for the coming year . Also, she broke down the results of our on-line survey of likes and dislikes and suggestions for improvement.  Again, very interesting stuff.  Aimee, our Treasurer, reported on the budget for the coming year.
After our business meeting, Amanda, our Swap Coordinator, passed out yummy little packages of 5" dots and stripes charm squares to those who participated in our Swap.  And then it was on to the Show and Share.

Tracy's BasketBall quilt top is just amazing! 

Linda showed us her completed Christmas quilt.  She assured us that it was quite warm and cosy for taking naps!

Here's the pieced back (upside down)

Linda shared fabric postcards that she received while participating in Sheila's Swaps.  For more info, contact Linda.  There may be a workshop in the future!

We had a great time listening and planning and sharing and oohing and aahing.  We have lots going on in the future and we are all excited to start our Second Year.  2014 was an amazing year for our guild,  and now we look forward to even better in 2015.    Our next Sew-In is scheduled for Jan, 31 and we hope that you can make it.  Bring your machine, a project or two, your lunch and your nametag.  Get in touch for more details if needed.
