August 31, 2016 Minutes

Thank you to Kim Ulrich for taking minutes in my absence ~ Kathy

Old Business

  • Geidra heard from Christopher Thompson (The Tattooed Quilter). He is open December 2-3 or 9-10. There appears to be more interest for the 2nd & 3rd of December. To ensure interest in this, a survey may be sent out to confirm attendance.
  • Charity Quilts : Pulse quilts were due this evening. We did receive more and they are being sent out this week.
  • There is still a need for volunteers for the October "Bring a Friend" meeting. Amy D. is going to send out an email with specific areas where volunteers are needed.
  • There is a GLAMP ticket available if anyone is interested in purchasing it.
New Business

  • Following discussion by members in attendance on the recent Modern Quilt Guild's blog post on 'Derivative Quilts', the consensus is to take a 'wait and see' attitude before pursuing any action.
  • Riverside Art Gallery Quilt Show
    • Recently three of our members had quilts on display at Riverside Art Gallery. Debbie had a conversation with the curator who was interested in having a modern quilt show there. If so, the possibility is that a show could be in March, June, or Fall 2017. There is a $200 charge to use the space, however we could have an entry fee to help defer the cost. 
    • We would need to have guidelines on quilts in the show.
    • Once we submit the application form, we will receive more specific information on the gallery space. If members decide to sell their quilt, the Gallery gets 30%.
    • It appears there is membership interest in this show so the Board is looking for individuals to be part of a committee to coordinate the event. If you are interested, please contact Amy D. or Debbie.
  • Library: If you would like to request a book, please let Kim U. know.
  • Swap/Challenge
    • This month we had a few members share some UFOs they completed. 
    • Those members who decided to participate, chose their Secret Stalker Swap partner.
    • Next month (September) we will be having a Favorite Fabric Yankee Swap. If you would like to participate, bring a fat quarter of your favorite fabrics wrapped. 
  • Features:
    • Member Spotlight "What Inspires You?": Ann and Jenny shared what inspires them.
    • Skill School: Jackie shared a technique on foundation piecing.
    • Round Robin
    • Show and Share
