It's about time - April Meeting Notes

So, in April, I was appointed the new secretary and have promptly taken far too long to post these meeting minutes.  My apologies, and I will try to be more timely in the future! - Amy T.

On to the notes...

The Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild has a flickr page in which members can upload pictures of their current projects.  Check it out!   

Many thanks to Kelly B. for her service as Secretary for the past year.  She has served us well, and I will try to follow in her footsteps, providing you with witty blog posts.  We'll see how it goes....

The by-laws were discussed by the group, and changes were made.  The final copy, with these changes, has been mailed to members. 

Thanks to Holly and Lynn for putting together a member directory, a PDF was mailed to members.  Please email if didn't receive the email.  As a reminder, this information is for personal, non-commerical use only. 

We are hoping to print some high quality flyers to hang around town: in quilt shops, coffee shops, etc. to advertise our guild.  Holly has agreed to help with the design, and, if members would like, they may make a donation to our printing fund at our monthly meeting.  

Get on your thinking caps:  The Special Events Coordinator for the Cincinnati Quilt Festival has asked local guilds to come up with proposals for special projects for next year's event.  We will discuss ideas at a future meeting.

Project Modern Challenge 3 is due June 30th.  The inspiration word is organic, and the judge is Pokey Bolton.

Mark your calendars:  Due to scheduling conflicts at the barn, the June meeting is Thursday the 16th.

Thanks to Victoria, we had a chance to play with our swap fabrics and test them on different solids.  It was amazing to see how these colors changed the look of the fabric.  Since, I don't know how to add photos to blog posts yet, check out our flickr page to see the pictures as well as what folks brought for Show and Tell.
