Our October meeting will be held Saturday, October 10, at 10:00 am at our usual meeting location at the First Baptist Church of Crestview. We hope you can join us for our meeting. Since we had our AMAZING Sew Modern Quilt Lab in September, there is quite a lot of business to cover in October and your voice is important.
Our luncheon will be a baked potato bar, so Kristy would like us to use Facebook to sign up to bring a salad, topping for the potatoes, or a dessert. Some ideas for toppings are chili, white chicken chili, cheese, sour cream, bacon, and chives.
We will be holding nominations for officers for the 2015-2016 year. If you are interested in nominating someone to serve on the Executive Board next year, be sure to come and have your voice heard. We will also need 2 volunteers to serve on the election committee to count ballots in November. Please let a board member know if you are interested in serving the guild in that capacity. In addition, we will need volunteers to staff the many Committee positions that help our guild run smoothly next year. If you wish to serve on a committee next year, please let a board member know before our November meeting.
We will be voting on a few important changes to the By-Laws. You received an email a couple of weeks ago outlining those changes. Please review the email prior to the meeting.
We will be participating in the St. Simon's Craft Fair on November 6 and 7 at St. Simon's on the Sound Episcopal Church. Please bring any items you have made to sell at the event. Kristy and Deb will be doing a mock up of the booth at our meeting. We are asking each member to bring at least handmade 2 items to sell. If you haven't had much time to craft amazing handmade items for this event, may we suggest that you use the Sew Day portion of our meeting to fulfill this request? We have loads of bazaar ideas on our Pinterest page.
The October block is the Zig Zag block, in Halloween prints/solids with a black background. Please remember to make some of these in red/white/blue for our QOV blocks. Instructions for both blocks are here.
This meeting will also be the big reveal for the Anniversary Scrap Swap. Be sure to bring your partner's item to the meeting. I suggest putting your item in a gift bag to maintain the suspense until the big moment. =)
Naturally, we will have a recap of our Sew Modern Quilt Lab and introduce the new members who joined the guild as a result of that event. Welcome! We are so excited to have you join us! And many thanks to Marcy and all those who made the event such a success.
Our program for the meeting will be 15 Minutes of Play by Natalie and Cindy.
It's sure to be a busy and fun-filled meeting! We look forward to seeing you there!
