It was a very cold day but 27 members turned out to our meeting in the evening and
we had a very busy day putting together quilt tops.
We tried out a new design board and have decided that the club needs one of their own.
During the evening meeting:
A thank-you card was received from Families First for the quilts donated to their organization.
The October, 2011 American Patchwork & Quilting and the pattern Coconuts were donated to the library.
The cost for those participating in UFO days will be $10.
Meals on Wheels received 51 placemats, Cree Nations Child and Family Agency received 5 quilts, Flin Flon Child and Family Services 5 quilts and Child and Family services 6 quilts at our Christmas party.
From a discussion it was decided to donate a quilt to a local resident living on her own.
There were 77 quilts in total donated to our community and surrounding areas in 2012.
Alex B has agreed to stand as our guild vice-president.
Dates for an upcoming guild retreat are being explored. Nadine made a motion to hold a retreat on March 1st and 2nd, 2013 if space is available. The majority is in favor.
Robin M will book the February UFO.
Quilting With Friends will hold a retreat at Baker’s Narrows Lodge on May 3,4,5, 2013. They would like 24 participants to take part. Contact Audrey N for contact information.
