Our May meeting was potluck with a guest speaker and trunk show by Mary Hertel. She was a great speaker and a great trunk show was given with the chance to purchase as well. She was also going to Jean Potter’s shop the following day for a workshop. You are able to Google her under Made By Marney. We did have a short meeting following.

I am including the Quilt Show Registration. Hopefully you can make copies for yourself. You will need 1 form for each quilt you enter into the quilt show in Sept. And I would appreciate the quilt forms as soon as possible so I can start typing up the slips for the show.
I also have included an excel spreadsheet with a list of the current members. Please review the spreadsheet and let me know if there are any additions or corrections that need to be made before I make copies or publish it.
