Discussion was held concerning changing show date to Friday and Saturday and the Vendor Shop Hop. It was the consensus to leave the show dates as is (Sat. & Sun.) and to try the Vendor Shop Hop again. Vendor food will go back to the Hospitality Room and a committee to prepare it. Pam McGhee and Bertha Hall former night guild members will chair it. It was agreed that the judged portion of the quilt show was a success for the first year and Angela hopes to find a different critique sheet for 2012. More comments were wanted from the judge. Judged quilt show entry fees will need to be increased next year. We will continue to use the Early Chamber of Commerce for the workshop meeting place. Stamps by Kate will be the workshop for 2012. Mille Schwab has white denim type fabric she will donate to use as seperators between the quilts. Marcella suggested a “Bed Turning”. She volunteered to be in charge of it. Doris Rice will work with Mildred Turner on a bookkeeping system for check out in the stash booth. There were numerous door prizes left over from the quilt show and it was suggested they be donated to the guild and used as monthly door prizes. Sherri Marshall will contact TX DOT on requirements for a banner at the traffic T for 2012. Norma Bessent and Benita Pipes will do an analysis on advertising on the Quilt Show.
