First Meeting of the New Year - Welcome to 2015!

On Thursday, January 29th we had our first meeting of 2015 and it was action packed!  We accomplished a lot of business and shared some creativity.

We began our meeting with a ice breaker asking members what they would like to see in 2015, here were some of the responses.  Our goal is to make as much of this happen as possible and we are off to a good start:

More workshops
More lectures
Color, Design to create ideas
Work with other guilds to bring in great guest speakers
Block of the month / Skill builder
If someone attends a training session, share topic
Share books and ideas from the book
A challenge of some sort
Anything that we are learning - a teachable item
The Batting Lady

Congratulations to Kaley for having one of her quilts accepted into QuiltCon!  We wish her luck!

Upcoming Events:
  • At our February Meeting, we will be hosting The Batting Lady.  She will make a presentation on different types of batting.  Stay tuned for where our meeting will be held, either at Moore's or Cosmic Quilting.  We will let you know.
  • Block of the month - "Circle of Squares"  - Due at February Meeting - Details to follow
  • Our Quarterly Challenge due at our March meeting - "Blooms"  Maximum size - 41"

  1. I was also there in the meeting and it was my first meeting of 2015. My answer on the question was I would like to attend more workshops but at nice meeting rooms. Kaley was looking amazing in meeting and I wished her good luck too.
