Tree City Quilters
July 11, 2011
President, Mabel Stoker had a brief business meeting. She thanked the picnic committee of Effie Troyer, Bev Haven and Peggy Hodge.
Birthdays were announced and the Cancer quilting zodiac read.
The Christmas committee chair, Sally Kitchen reported on the plans. The exchange will be any item that is new and has a Christmas tree in it. The gift exchange will be a regular sized shoe box filled with 9 items beginning with each letter in the word “CHRISTMAS” It is to cost under $15, have one home made item, label each item, and gift wrap it. The items may be sewing or quilting related, and it was suggested that all quilters need chocolate.
The quilt shop trip will be Tuesday, August 2nd, leaving at 8:30am from the parking lot on the corner of Lincoln Way and Fry Rd. A sign up sheet was passed.
Gwen Hoover reported on Fair Demonstrations. They will be help on Tuesday, 9/13 and Wednesday, 9/14 from 3pm to 4pm. They would like volunteers to give brief, 20 minute demonstrations of some quilting related item or technique. This is a good way to reach new quilters and to promote quilting.
Retreat surveys were passed out and members encouraged to give their opinions.
The August 8th program will be presented by Dr. Virginia Gunn, textile professor at Akron U. and curator of the Wayne County Historical Society. Feel free to bring guests for this special program.
