There was also discussion concerning vendor booth fees. Tricia Emery moved that we increase the vendor booth fee to $100. LaTrelle Locks seconded and motion carried. Mildred Turner and Judy Tiedemann will co-chair the guild stash booth. There was also discussion concerning the goodie basket that we raffle at the Quilt Show. Bethany Bletsch moved that guild members donate a “quilty” item for the goodie basket and LaTrelle Locks seconded. Motion carried.
Mildred Turner volunteered to chair the Raffle Quilt 2012 committee. Angela has a potential quilt kit if the guild is interested.
Fran Snay is available for the workshop for the Quilt Show. Her fee is approximately $1000. She will conduct the workshop, “String Quilts”, present a lecture and trunk show on Saturday afternoon and judge the quilts that are entered for judging. All quilts will need to be entered on Thursday instead of Friday so that judging may occur on Friday. Tricia Emery moved we secure Fran Snay. LaTrelle seconded the motion and motion carried.
