AAQG 08.07.2018 Board Meeting

Members present:  Linda Schlenker, Ramona Tapper, Ginger Green, Beth Hromyak, Carol Westercamp, Debbie Groff, Anita Allwood, Jean Taft, Janet DeJager, Kim McAllister, Terri Henkels and Cecilie Vogt.

The minutes were passed out- there was a typo- Ginger Green’s name was misspelled thru the notes.  This was noted.

Linda brought up the historic information the guild has- what should we do with it?  Do we need a historical person to keep track of  what goes on?  It was mentioned the minutes should be on line- so the current secretary was not going to keep a note book of the notes.  Nothing was decided what to do.

Quilt show numbers- there was a little profit as of to date is was only $700.  The vendor surveys need to be sent out- Janet will work on that sometime.

Debbie announced that Barb Eikmeier will be our program and will be going to dinner at the Uptown Diner at 5 pm.  October will be Amy Bradley, the creator of a lot of fun applique patterns.  There will also be a workshop.  The price of the workshop was discussed.  The workshop will not be held at the church so Anita is contacting the American Legion to see if it can be held there.  There needs to be a program chair for the upcoming year.

Jean Taft is going to be checking on the guidelines for the changes in our new location at the Methodist Church.  Jean is also looking for a Director at Large elect.

Retreat update- the check to reserve this location for 2019 needs to be sent in so it is there sometime in September.

As another way to fund raise- Linda wants to sell some of the magazines and books at the meetings.  She will  bring in a box when she knows the speaker is not selling their products.  This could be 3-4 times a year.

Ginger went thru what is needed for the Santa North Pole Village craft show.  She will also have the spreadsheet at the meeting for the members to pick up and use as a reference for what to work on.

There are 81 donation quilts in storage.  Linda said that she has not really focused on the donation quilts this year as she was president and vice president.  The larger quilts will be going to the Youth Homes in November.

The voting will continue for the fate of the quilt show and guild in August.

Linda thanked everyone for their patience as her term comes to an end.

Jean Taft made a motion to end the meeting and Kim seconded the motion.

Piecefully submitted,

Ramona Tapper
