Brownwood Quilters Guild

The July meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild was called to order by interim President, Angela McCorkle ( in the absence of Joy Ivy & Doris Rice).

Marcella League made a motion to accept June minutes; Lynn Patrick 2nd the motion.  Motion carried.

No roll call was given due to the fact that secretary, LaTrelle Locks, failed to have list with her.  A sign up sheet was placed at front door.  There were 15 members present & we had 2 visitors;  Connie Hart and Camryn Bills.

It was announced that there will be a discussion next month concerning the stash booth at the quilt show. 
Angela announced that one of our long time vendors had passed away.  John of Barb’s Quilt Nook died of a massive heart attack.  A sympathy card was passed around for everyone to sign.  Angela will send it to his wife, Barb.

Angela asked that the Quilt Show Committee meet every quarter.  She also confirmed that Sue Garman will be our speaker on Friday & Debbie Maddy for Saturday of the quilt show next year.
A suggestion was made to have a “2 day pass” for the quilt show.  It was suggested that we charge $10 for 2 days as well as give a $2 discount for Senior Citizens.  More discussion on this topic next month.
