August Meeting Notes:
We had a lovely speaker, Jean Carlton, Certified Quilt Appraiser. If you missed the meeting, she will be at the quilt show giving appraisals. Biggest takeaway is to label and document your quilts.
2012 Challenge Results!
Big thanks to everyone that participated. I think we had over 18 quilts that will be donated to Lakeview Hospital. Our three-way tie for 1st was between Meg Byram, Cathy Smith and Donelle Fisk! You can get a chance to see the quilts again at the Quilt Show.
Barn Boards Update– to seal or not to seal - paint used was exterior house paint, so should be fine. If you wish to seal, use an acrylic outdoor sealer, 2 coats. Here is a pic of Jean Krumm’s finished project - If you have pics from your project, please email to Kelly – I would like to do a post on the website.
Quilt Show Updates:
WITC concern about booking if we go to bi-annual. They take reservations 1 year in advance, so Quilt Show committee just needs to mark calendar for January to contact.
We will be voting on Annual vs Bi-annual Show at the September meeting.
Silent Auction Items, please bring finished, priced items to the September meeting. Give to Jean Potter.
Here are the numbers of quilts we have. We are going to scrap the Lessons Learned section because we need that display space for regular quilts.
