BROWNWOOD QUILTERS GUILD
The August 16th, 2011 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by Pres. Angela McCorkle. There were 26 members present. Sherri Marshall moved and Nancy Tubb seconded that minutes from the July meeting be approved as posted. Mildred Turner moved and Joy Ivy seconded that the treasurer’s report be approved as posted.
Sunshine Report from Sherry Benbow reported a get well card was sent to Pat Karnes . Joyce Kelley reported her husband will have back surgery soon.
Joy Ivy reported that we need quilts for the Wee Care Project. Angela McCorkle reported not much was happening with the Quilt Show right now. Vendor letters will go out in September. The Marketing person at the Chamber will meet with Angela in October after the meeting to discuss other possible avenues to promote the quilt show.
Fay Johnson donated a bag of scraps if someone will come and get them from her. Angela has her phone number if you are interested. Joy Early has ties to donate to make a quilt also.
The Arts and Crafts Show is the second weekend in November at the Coliseum. We have been given 3 booths to set up and sell raffle tickets for our donation quilt and promote the guild and the art of quilting. Doris Rice is in charge of the set up. Shelia, Marcella, Joy Ivy, Marilyn and Sherri Marshall volunteered to help her.
There is an issue concerning emailing minutes. It currently is the policy of the guild to email the minutes to members so that it takes up less business time at the meetings. After discussion, it was moved by Joy Early that minutes will be read at the meetings and emailed to members. LaTrelle Locks seconded it and motion carried.
Jonna Burkes will present the program next month on Flannel Pinwheel Posey Quilt. There is no charge for the program, the guild provides the supplies needed to complete 2 blocks plus lunch. Each member will need to provide their own drink.
