Meeting Notes

From The President:

July 16,2020

Hello . Since our esteemed Governor has limited gatherings to 10 or less people we will not have Guild until September. I'm sorry about the picnic, but I’m not willing to push our luck. I think we should forget 2020 and head to 2021. Don’t forget your ballots and dues money. Keep in touch.

Secretary Report

Business Meeting

July 8, 2020


There were 7 attendees: Vyn Wayne, Elaine Thornton, Ruth Johnson, Diana Funk, Jimi Wade, Laura Matheny, and Sandy Davidson.

Treasurer’s report was read by President Vyn Wayne. Minutes for the June meeting were approved as written.

The raffle quilt has been sent to be quilted. The embellishment part is tentatively set for the second meeting in September, September 23rd.

Ballots to be mailed by the end of July by Elaine with instructions to bring them to the August meeting or mail them to our P.O. Box 1379. All current officers have agreed to continue through next year and Elaine has stepped in to be co-VP because of the raffle quilt requirement that was added to the bylaws last year. Elaine has graciously been working on all the finishing steps of the quilt, including adding borders that helped pull the individual blocks into looking like a cohesive quilt. Karen Buckmaster has agreed to help with ticket sales.

Discussion took place regarding whether we should order bookmarks or postcards to advertise the quilt. General consensus was that postcards might be a better choice since there are three quilted items this year. The decision will be made after the quilts are returned.

Craft Destash is to be on Saturday, October 10th .

It was suggested that a tip, a short cut or a suggestion could be added to the program.

Elaine described several ideas that could liven up the meetings. One was a fabric postcard swap. Another was a round robin done by groups of 5 people. Diane Funk described a round-robin that the Rhody Birds have done. Cards with different techniques or ideas would be created and put in a bag. One card would be drawn each month. That technique or idea would have to be used to do the next layer. One idea could be using circles, or triangles. Was to be a 12” block. The beginning could be a square or a panel. Elaine or Diane was going to find more complete instructions to bring to the group next month.

Dues are due in September. $25.00

Show and Tell: Elaine showed what was done at the second meeting in June: bleaching done on embroidered leaves. She also talked about tea and coffee dyeing. Laura Matheny showed a Missouri star patriotic quilt in red, white and blue. Then she showed a scrap quilt, and then a curved log cabin quilt with a floral design, quilted by herself. Jimi Wade talked about doing the quilt run this year and the weather block she created. She also made a bathroom rug out of 3/8” clothesline, and showed a block her granddaughter made titled “Quilt Diva 101.”

Meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted by Sandy Davidson, Secretary
