Meeting Minutes from Nov 20, 2013

Hello everyone!  We had a great meeting last Wednesday!  It was very nice to see everyone and spend some time talkin' sewin' instead of holiday planning! 

Next Sew-in: Sunday, Dec 8
Next Meeting: Wednesday, Dec 18 (not our usual last-wednesday-of-the-month, due to holidays).

No swaps at the next meeting, but there IS a Holiday Social Hour!  Come to Pink Castle at 5:30, bring some treats to share, and we'll have a festive time. 

Lauren showed this lama mini quilt.  It's amazing. www.instagram.com/lekoch


Meeting Minutes:
  • We changed the seating arrangement from a giant circle to rows of chairs.

    • So happy to report that after the meeting Stephanie and Pam agreed to be co-chairs!  Thank you!
