BROWNWOOD QUILTERS GUILD
The October 19, 2010 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by President Angela McCorkle. There were 30 members and 2 guests present. Also, there were 5 visitors from the Stephenville Town and Country Guild. After a correction to the date of the last meeting, Lynn Patrick moved and Bethany Bletsch seconded that minutes from the September meeting be approved. Joyce Kelley moved we approve the treasurer’s report as posted and Marilyn DeHay seconded. Both motions carried. Angela McCorkle reported that, due to an oversight, the church had not been paid for this fiscal year. A check for the full amount was presented to the church after the meeting.
Sherry Benbow, Sunshine Chairman, reported that cards were sent to Foncille Rolling and Ruby Goodwin. After some discussion, a motion was made by LaTrelle Locks and seconded by Sherri Marshall to send a $50 floral arrangement or make a charitable donation in the event of a death of a Guild member or their spouse. A donation will be made to “The Gideon International” in honor of Ruby Goodwin’s husband who passed away last week.
Angela reiterated that the Quilt Show dates have been changed to April 30th and May 1st, 2011 due to a conflict with Easter. Bethany Bletsch volunteered to be Admissions chair. Vendor Food and Guild Projects chairs are still needed.
Tricia Emery reported the Hospitality Committee will be meeting about the Christmas party. The party will be held on the regular meeting day and time in December.
Joyce Kelley reported the program for November will be Marcia Kaylackie, quilt appraiser. Members that want appraisals done should contact Joyce Kelley. The cost of each appraisal will be $45 per quilt.
Joy Ivy reported 15 receiving blankets and 5 quilts have been delivered to the hospital. Angela McCorkle reported that some members had experienced problems with printing of the label sent out by e-mail. Also, special fabric or fabric treatment needs to be done to the muslin to prevent the ink from washing out. It was decided that Jonna Burkes will print out the labels and be compensated for the supplies.
