BROWNWOOD QUILTERS GUILD
The August 17th, 2010 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by Pres. Angela McCorkle. There were 30 members and 2 guests present. LaTrelle Locks moved and Sherri Marshall seconded that minutes from the July meeting be approved. Ruby Goodwin moved and Nancy Tubb seconded that the treasurer’s report be approved as posted.
Sherry Benbow, Sunshine Chairman reported that a get well card was sent to member Barbara Spinks.
Nancy Tubb, Mystery Quilt chair announced the mystery quilt will begin in September. A signup sheet was passed around and fabric requirements will be emailed to those participating. The duration of the project will be 6 months. Each person participating will bring their completed blocks back to the next meeting for show and tell.
Quilt Show Chair, Angela McCorkle reported that Fran Snay confirmed for the workshop, judging of quilts, and presentation. The Poster Distribution still needs a chair and Bethany Bletsch volunteered to do so. Angela will contact the coliseum to see if the new concession contractors will prepare vendor food. A quilt kit was presented for the 2012 donation quilt.
Patty Stevens from The Quilting House in Breckenridge will present the program for September. She will also conduct a workshop in the afternoon on paper piecing.
It was suggested that show and tell items be displayed on a table so that members may get a close look after the meeting. Any member who would like to receive minutes by snail mail will need to give Doris Rice SASE to receive a copy. Tricia reminded everyone to make donations for door prizes.
