The November 16, 2010 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by President Angela McCorkle. There were 30 members and 3 guests present. Bethany Bletsch moved and Pauline McBride seconded that minutes from the October meeting be approved as posted. Lynn Patrick moved we approve the treasurer’s report as posted and Terri Reed seconded. Both motions carried.

Sherry Benbow, Sunshine Chairman, reported that no cards were sent this last month.

Angela reiterated that the Quilt Show dates have been changed to April 30th and May 1st, 2011 due to a conflict with Easter.

Lynn Patrick reported the Hospitality Committee met about the Christmas party. The party will be held on the regular meeting day and time in December. Each member is to bring a covered dish. Angela’s husband will cook the brisket. Those who wish to participate in the gift exchange need to bring a quilt related gift under $20. Also each member is to bring the lipstick you wear for a fun activity the committee is planning. It was brought to the members’ attention that the December meeting is the Tuesday before Christmas.
