President Lana Webb called the meeting to order. Roll call was answered by everyone telling of a craft they enjoy or have enjoyed in addition to quilting. (Answers ranged from embroidery, knitting, and sewing to china painting, stained glass, and doll making!) The consent agenda was approved, with a motion to accept by Ruby Goodwin and a second by Jan Cates

* The Hamilton Extension Education Association’s Spring Fling will be April 1 at the Hamilton High School Chandler Craig Auditorium, 611 S. College.
* Lana and Jan had attended the Waco Quilt Show and reported on the quilts and vendors. Lana had information about a number of other shows and shops.
* Ideas were shared about CPS bags, pillowcases, crocheted or knitted caps for newborns, and dog beds—all as possible projects using our skills and extra fabric.
* Yards of fabric and stacks of quilt books and patterns and tubs of scraps were available for everyone to take home. (The rule was: If you are here, you have to take something!)
