· Charity – Sonja reminded everyone that at November’s meeting all our charity quilts will be presented to the organizations that benefit. Please bring any charity quilt you haven’t turned in. We will have a parade of quilts before they are sent off to their new homes!
· Program Gail reminded everyone our exchange for the holiday party in December is a pot holder, there are no rules, please make a potholder, wrap it, put a card inside with your name on it and put it in a brown paper bag and bring to the December meeting to exchange for another pot holder!
· Ways & Means Joey asked everyone to bring a holiday themed Fat Quarter for a FQ exchange at the November meeting.
· Refreshments Bernie advised for our December meeting we will be having a cookie exchange. Bring a dozen cookies for sampling at the meeting and a dozen cookies for exchanging. This way we can sample AND gather a few different cookies to take home. Please write your recipe out so we can all have the recipe for our favorite cookies shared. Since our next two meetings involve everyone bringing food, our refreshment list will commence again in January and she’ll be in touch with whoever’s turn it is at that time.
The guild election and changing the by laws was discussed again, it was brought up by Helen that maybe the by-laws should be changed to read that the term for elected board members be two years, there was a discussion about changing the by laws. Doreen explained how changing the by laws is handled. It was decided that changing the by laws wasn’t necessary and Donna F made a motion that the serving board members service term be extended and they all serve for the year 2015. The motion was seconded by Inge and carried by the attending members.
Doreen went over some details for the upcoming quilt retreat.
