July meeting recap

July 14 was a potluck meeting at Mission Heritage Park. Our special guests were some members from the Bellingham Modern Quilt Guild. Welcome to everyone who crossed the border to join us for dinner and share their work!

Membership Update – Sherri

37 members in attendance tonight. Everyone is welcome to renew their membership tonight or at the August meeting. The September meeting (our anniversary meeting) will be members only. You need to renew before then to vote on the next executive, the budget, and join in the anniversary fun. The cost is still $60 to renew and includes your membership to the Modern Quilt Guild, or ‘the mothership’ as we call it.

September Meeting – Jean

September is our anniversary meeting. We will vote on the budget, which will be sent out before the August meeting so that everyone has time to ask questions before the vote. There are volunteers for every position on the executive committee but we are still accepting nominations and will vote at the September meeting if necessary. Please speak to Jean if you are interested.

For the anniversary meeting, we are featuring a special hexi show & tell for our sixth anniversary. Everyone who brings a door prize will take one home – try to keep them to $6 to be in keeping with the sixth anniversary theme.

Creative Stitches Show 2017 – Jean

We have been invited to be part of Creative Stitches next year. However, the executive committee doesn’t have the capacity to organize it again. We will need a committee in place by September if we are going to do it again.
