AAQG 08.14.2018 Meeting

Linda welcomed everyone to the August meeting, there were 33 members and 2 guests in attendance.

Linda announced that there were some board positions available- so if you want to serve on the board let Linda know.  After Linda announced who volunteered for the open positions there was a vote and it was passed.  These positions will begin at the September meeting.

The speaker this month was Barb Eikmeir from Kansas.  She showed us a lot of her friendship quilts that gals in her various quilt groups had participated in.  Even the quirky blocks are a reminder of friends we have and how their personalities come out in the blocks! We felt we knew her friends as she shared the quilts some had helped make.

Anita shared about the upcoming workshop with Amy Bradley; the cost has not been determined.  Amy will provide the block that we will be working on.  This will be on machine applique using the button hole stitch.

The quilt show made a profit of $730, and the Iowa Quilt Museum dropped off a check.

Santa North Pole Village- Ginger handed out a spreadsheet of what is needed for the craft sale.  She also showed some examples.  This is coming up fast and products are needed to sell.

Sign up for the treats is needed for the new year.  When it is your turn for  treats you will  need to be at the church at 5:45 to set up.

Door prizes were awarded- remember you must have a name tag on to win!  There was a brief show and tell and then we were dismissed.

Piecefully submitted,

Ramona Tapper
