General Meeting of July 24, 2014
President Beth called the meeting to order, reminded everyone of the hospitality sign up and shared some information on the survey taken last month. Surveys were made available to any who may have missed last month’s meeting.
Marcia discussed the issue of legacy for quilt makers – being sure that we include the “closets” of material and sewing machines will go to designated persons or groups. Many may not be aware of the value of our quilt closets and it is important to put something in writing to be sure that things aren’t found in burner bins.
Beth shared the openings for next year’s guild board which include president, treasurer, program chair, BOM chair and marketing chair. The guild is greatly benefited by volunteers and more people are needed to aid with committees. Small amounts of time are needed generally and there is great joy in getting to know more of your fellow guild members.
