june meeting.

Can you believe it?! Another guild year is coming to an end, and that means it's time to PARTY! But before we can celebrate, we have some business to attend to:

Here's what's in store for the next meeting:

  1. Discussion -- we want to hear from you! What are some things you are looking for in the guild next year? We have some exciting ideas, but will need help from you to make it happen! We are looking to increase member involvement to make the guild better for everyone! Let's chat about how we are going to put our plans into action!
  2. Elections -- it's time to vote for new board positions! 
  3. Swap --  everyone should bring their medallion centers for next year's medallion swap. The center block should be:
    • a MINIMUM size of 12.5" x 12.5" AND
    • preferably made in the modern aesthetic.
      • Here's how the swap is going to work: everyone that participates will receive ANOTHER MEMBER's medallion to take home over the summer. Over the summer you will have to add a 10" border to the center block. You can add one giant border, or smaller borders that IN TOTAL equal 10". We will then swap again at the September meeting. This will continue until we have significant-sized quilt tops that we can hopefully donate to charity AND **possibly** raffle off to raise money for the guild!
      • We will explain this in detail at the meeting, but this is to give you an idea of the process.
  4. Snacks -- by now you know, we can't have a party without party food! So please bring a drink or a snack to share!
  5. Dues Discount -- if you would like to save on membership fees for next year, we are accepting early-bird membership at a discounted price of $40/year. If you wait until September, dues will be $50.
  6. Prizes --  we are bringing back door prizes! Get a chance to win by signing in, and earn EXTRA chances to win by bringing a BOM or show and share. 
  7. Show and Share -- so now you know, earn an extra chance to win a prize when you bring something to share with the group! We are especially excited to see any progress on your skill-builder BOMs.  Annnnnnd last but not least, 
  8. Destash Raffle -- one of the ways we raise additional funds for the guild to have great speakers (and hopefully even more events next year) is through the raffle. Please consider purchasing a ticket for the last basket of the year!
We have a great year to celebrate and an exciting year to plan! Hope to see you at Pieceful Quilting on the 21st!
