October 2018 Guild meeting

We had 53 members, and no guests joining us last month. Welcome Imana, our newest member.

Let’s get to it

Happenings-
The Grounds for Sculpture field trip unfortunately happened on a cold and rainy day, but it didn’t stop Margy and Marika from enjoying themselves.
Pam told us about Catherine Redford
Rayna’s class was a lot of fun
Krishma had a beautiful exhibit at the Plainsboro Library
Terri took a long arming class with Diane at Sew Jersey
Newark Museum had an interesting Kimono exhibit
Huntington County Museum- Lace Not Lace
Rhinebeck Sheep and wool fest
Montclair Art Museum- Kara Walker
Swathmore- Gees Bend

Mid Atlantic Mod is happening. To make things fair for our members we had a lottery for the spots. A lucky 10 will get early sign up.

The MQG is raising the dues, which is making us look into our finances. We will be voting on the new budget and dues at the November meeting. Renewal starts Dec 1.

Last month we had a challenge for our members. It was the embellishment challenge.

And let’s show off some of what we did in Rayna’s classes.

We asked our members for a show of hand to get an idea for having Sherri Lynn Wood visit our guild. Not sure we should move forward for next year, but we will see what the future brings

We are also asking our members for any ideas for future workshops.

For our holiday swap this year, we are changing it up from the normal Elfster swap to a blind exchange. We voted on a reusable tote bag.

Charity would like to send out what we have at the end of the year. If you have any blocks for Quilts of Valor, bring them to the November meeting!

Raffle time! Congrats, Mary!

After the break we showed off our Quiltcon charity quilt blocks. I for one, can’t wait to see it all together!

And the back…
