Meeting Recap

We had a great meeting, as usual! Plenty of time for chatting and plenty of space for sewing!

We discussed a little bit of business:
  • Members should have received an email that has information about how to nominate someone (or yourself) for a board position. Our new board will start in January, but having nominations now and elections in October will allow us some overlap and time to plan for next year. 
  • We shared thank you letters we have received from charities that received quilts from us last year. 
  • Stay tuned here and to your email for plans for the September 5th Tuesday sewing evening. 

Most of us worked away on quilt bindings, but Crystal was working on an American Doll dress from a class she's taking. 

And Kristin wow-ed us all with her beautiful quilts in progress that she was working on. Take a look!
