April Meeting Notes

Our guild meeting was held April 12, 2018.  We enjoyed a potluck and a trunk show put on by Bolts of Fun of Thorp, WI.  A panel strips project and collage quilts with layers of fussy cut fabrics were shown along with some fabric shopping. 
The meeting was called to order by President Eileen Van Dyk.  Secretary’s report was approved by Linda A.  Treasurer Bridget gave her report and was also approved.
Show and tell was enjoyed by everyone.
Committee Reports:
Farm Girl Vintage – Blocks were shown, drawings for prizes were drawn – March – Patsy won -  April – Chaz Cypher won
Sunshine Committee – Sue Powers and Linda A. on the committee – Please be mindful if you hear of someone from the quilt guild that needs to be acknowledged and let them know.  There are some guidelines that have been established for sympathy cards and other events to be acknowledged.
