November 15, 2011


The November 15, 2011 meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by President Angela McCorkle. There were 28 members and 1 visitor present.

Angela reported that vendor letters for the quilt show went out. We will be doing the Quilt Show Passport again. It was general consensus that we will make the ribbons again this year. The 2012 Donation Quilt is done. Anyone who would like to take it to shows, set up at the mall, etc. is welcome and encouraged to do so.

The Christmas party will be held for the month of December. The guild will provide the brisket cooked by Bud McCorkle, and each member is to bring a covered dish. We will play Left, Right, Center Game for entertainment. Each member is to bring 4 fat quarters to play the game. Each member is also to bring a toy for Toys for Kids Drive, and in lieu of bringing a gift for Angela, she encouraged members to bring another toy instead. The following people volunteered to decorate a tree: Marcella, LaTrelle, Angela, Doniene, and Ruby.

LaTrelle is looking into screen print t-shirts instead of heat transfer. It was also discussed to have show pins for sale.

Show and Tell items were shown by Stella Burns, Bethany Bletsch, Daisy Huntsinger, Mille Schwab, Angela McCorkle. Pictures can be seen on the guild website.

Meeting was adjourned to the program by ZoRay Creations on the “XBlock” Door prizes were won by Doris, Ruby, Karen, Bethany, and Joy Early and Mille. Fat Quarters were won by LaTrelle. Blocks for the month were won by Becky Martin.

Respectfully submitted,
Doris Rice, Secretary
