Meeting Minutes: April 2014

April Meeting: Thank you to Shirley H. for an interesting presentation about African Quilts.


Quilts Challenges:

It was great to hear that many people are well into their Trip Around the World quilts and that many have completed their Brown Bag Challenges.  Don’t forget about the Chatelaine challenge as well.

Compassion Quilts UPDATE:

Thank you to Carla and Trish for making new labels for the Compassion quilts.  More where quilted and home with our lovely ladies for binding and labels.  Thank you again to everyone for their hard work.

Welcome to Karen – Lister’s wife from England who came to stay after his accident, wrote us a lovely thank-you note and would like to move to Canada but Lister has other feelings about that right now. 

Charity Quilts:

Kelly  is the contact for two Charity Opportunities :

South Calgary Health Campus needs neo-natal quilts – 30 x 24 inches – 100% cotton only.  Please do not use sprays like basting spray.  The quilts will be washed at the hospital. Can contain a small quilt guild label. Also flannel receiving blankets – the usual size
Meals on Wheels will accept most sizes of placemats – we have found that 13 x 17 fits on a tray and two sided is nice. Kelly will collect both and drop off when she has a bunch.

Heritage Park Quilt Show May 24-25, 2014

All Volunteer Times are covered – YEAH!
Mary has the dinner tickets – YEAH!
We have enough modern quilts and other projects to cover the tables. YEAH!
Janet M. is becoming the CQA representative.  Thanks Janet, you will be a wonderful representative.  Janet will present a winning rosette at the June meeting, take a photo and do a mini write up about us.
Upcoming Quilt Guild Information
Remember that your dues for the 2014-2015 year are due in JUNE
Please start thinking of ideas for challenges, projects or classes for our planning meeting in JUNE.  If you have any, feel free to email Jen as she has a list going with others that have been mentioned at the meetings.
An idea that we will discuss in June is the thought of an outdoor quilt show and tea in August on Market Day to possibly raise funds.
Thank you to our Sunshine Lady, Linda, for giving flowers on behalf of the guild to Betty and Susan.
If there is anyone else who would be willing to help with set up in June, please let Mary know as we are a couple of people short.
