May 25, 2016 Meeting Minutes


Old Business
  • We did a  check-in to see if anything was needed for the Penny Layman class on the 1st
  • Giedra is still looking for a good meeting space for us
  • Snack sign-ups good for most of the year (thanks!)
  • Charity Quilts: next month bring red-white-blue blocks (any combination). Should be 12-1/2" blocks (to finish at 12" to make 3x4 block quilts for Veterans). Still looking for donations of modern fabrics - we now have a fabric bin.  Also are looking for volunteers to do shared quilts (someone does cutting, another piecing, another the quilting).
  • Foodie Challenge:  we showed off our finished mini-quilts. Show at Zingerman's has been extended by one day to give the Glamp attendees a chance to see them. June 2-5. Winner will be by popular vote (vote at Zingerman's).  Prize sponsored by the Deli and Pink Castle Fabrics.
 

  • Retreats: 
    • SUMMER: Amanda reported that there are 4 options for a summer retreat (3 Howell dates (Jul 15-17, July 22, Aug 28) and one opening at Creative Passions also on Jul 15-18).  A show-of-hands vote indicated a preference to try Creative Passions so Amanda will book that.  July 15-17, $140 with continental breakfast and optional Thursday arrival (add'l fee).  There is a 24 maximum attendance.  She notes that we do not need to bring our own linens for this venue and supposedly has good chairs and restaurants near-by. www.creativepassionsllc.com/ 203 Pearl St, Chesaning, MI 48616. Amanda will send an email with details to the group - plan on paying at next meeting.
    • WINTER: We will go to Hankerd Inn, planning on Jan. 27-29 weekend.
  • Library Spotlight (new books - See Kim for details!)
  • Member Spotlight: Postponing for awhile. Giedra will announce something different at next meeting.
  • No Skill School this month
  • Round Robin
  • Show and Share

  1. Curious. Can we bring/invite a friend that's not a member of the guild?
