January 8th, 2015

Our first guild meeting of 2015 was filled with information, inspiration and the chance to purchase some quilting necessities.
Our Merchant for the evening was Shirley Bobier from the Marsh Store in Coldstream.  She had lots of quilting goodies for sale.  She also told us about "Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day" on Jan 24th, 2015.

President Micki A. told us that she and her husband had picked up our new trailer and had driven it to Pauline R.'s home to pick up our quilt frames.  They then drove the trailer back to their home where it is now stored in their barn.  In the spring, shelves will need to be built inside the trailer to properly store all of our equipment.

Micki also spoke about the executive for our 2015-16 quilting year.  Below is a note that she has written regarding the executive.
Now that a new year has started, it's time to think about our executive for September. Several of the present executive will be leaving their position. Only the Library and Community Outreach chairs will be returning. Therefore, we need to fill the positions of Blog, Secretary, Program and President. When I announced at the January meeting that most positions will need to be filled, two members came forward to do Membership and Treasurer.  The only pre-requisite is for the President's job. It requires the member to have served either on the present executive or a previous one.
Please think about serving on the executive. I will be discussing this further at the next few meetings.

Our Speaker for the evening was Deborah Beirnes from Elmira.  She presented a wonderful Trunk Show entitled "Scrap Magic Trunk Show".  She talked about her scrap system and showed us how beautiful quilts can be made from your stash.

After a short break where more stash enhancing was taking place at Shirley's tables, we had "Show and Tell" and the drawing of the tickets for fat quarters (donated by Shirley) and the gift basket.
