The June 21st, 2011 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by Pres. Angela McCorkle. There were 26 members and 2 guests present. LaTrelle Locks moved and Sherry Benbow seconded that minutes from the May meeting be approved as posted minus the old 2010 minutes that were not deleted when posted. Sherri Marshall moved and Joy Ivy seconded that the treasurer’s report be approved as posted.

Angela announced the following committee chairs:

CPS – Nancy Tubb

Joy Ivy reported that we need quilts for the Wee Care Project. Brown County Child Advocacy Center requested that we make quilts for them. Although this will not be a guild project, if anyone would like to make a quilt, Angela has the contact name if you want to make one.

Sherry Benbow reported that a get well card was sent to Pat Murph, a thinking of you card to Jeani Ortegon, a sympathy card to Becky Martin. It was announced that Maxine Vaughn had hip surgery.

Angela McCorkle reported that there is no quilt show activity to report. She passed around a SongBird Retreat Brochure in Kingsland TX. The Quilt Show Goodie Basket winner gave the guild a $10 donation for mailing the goodie basket and sent a thank you. Town and Country Quilt Guild will host a program and workshop on June 23rd in Stephenville featuring Michelle Watts and her Southwest quilts. A thank you note was read from Joan Lampkin.

The next guild meeting is July 19 and is our Annual Banquet. There will be no coffee social and the meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. instead of 9:30 a.m. The meat will be provided for the banquet and everyone is to bring a covered dish. Five people were needed to decorate for the banquet using the items in their “brown bag” they were given. They are Sherri Marshall, Ruby Goodwin, Teresa Reed, Jonna Burkes, and Benita Pipes.

Show and Tell was as follows:

Sheila Smith – Applique Affair Quilt top

Mille Schwab – Pineapple Foldy Quilt, Dress

Joy Ivy – t-shirt quilt

Wanda Jackson – Mystery Quilt

Doris Rice – Sports Bear Baby Quilt, Quilt of Valor, Mystery Quilt

Mildred Turner moved that we move $154.62 from the general fund to the benevolent fund to bring it out of a negative balance. LaTrelle Locks seconded and motion carried.

Drawing for the fat quarters was won by Joy Ivy. July’s fat quarter is “dots”. Patsy Oehrelein won the membership quilt kit drawing.

Sonja Bannister presented the program on using decorative stitches to quilt your quilts.
