04-08-2014 AAQG Meeting

Posted in Business on April 10th, 2014

Ann called the meeting to order and welcomed 93 members and 44 guests, and several new members.  She announced that Ankeny High School needed sewers to sew flags for the Color Guards.  If interested contact Ann or the High School.

Connie showed the progress of the donation quilts- there are over 80!  Still need a vice president, secetary, quilt show elect, program elect and communications elect for the 2014-2015 year.

The quilt show will be July 11-12, 2014 at the FFA Enrichment Center on the DMACC campus in Ankeny.  Quilt show chairs are needed, contact Connie for these positions.

Cathy reminded us of the May Challenge- a set of potholders, 4 fabrics and a flower must be included in this.  Any type of potholders are welcome.

The long awaited program starring Jenny Doan was announced and had us all at the edge of our seats listening to her.  She can create any quilt from pre-cuts and showed us how easy it is.  She had examples on the flannel board and followed that with the finished quilt.  She has blog as well as a shop in Missouri.

Next month the meeting will be Micky Mowry, and her program is: “Sew Many Pieces” and the workshop will be May 14.  There is still time to sign up for this.

The Director at large gals announced the donation kits that were needed to be completed.  They announced the door prizes and showed us the block of the month.  Cathy announced the winner for the May workshop with Micky Mowry- Ramona Tapper was the winner:)

Birthdays were announced.

There was no show and tell since it was getting very late.

Fellowship and refreshments ended the meeting.

Respectfully submitted,

Ramona Tapper
