Monthly Meeting Update

Image
Hey all! At this month's meeting we will be opening the floor up to potential Presidential candidates. If you would like to run for President (or co-president) please come prepared to talk a little bit about why you have chosen to run and what your vision is for the guild.

If you would like to participate in the scrap swap for the annual holiday/secret santa, please bring a sandwich-sized Ziploc full of scraps to the meeting. Please remember that these scraps are expected to be modern and quilt-shop quality; please don't put anything in your scrap bag that you would not likje to receive yourself. Since the holiday swap is blind you may just end up getting your own scraps back in the form of a handmade gift.

As always, please bring along your completed projects and/or problems to share with the group.

Just a reminder: I am currentlty in the UK for work and may not be able to make this meeting. If you have any questions or comments about the elections, please feel free to email…

We'll get to the logistics of this in a moment, but I wanted to address my resignation a little further first.

I have been President for over three years now (it'll be just about 3.5 years by the time I step down), and I think that it is time for someone else to take the reins. The past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind, what with the new MQG fees and structure, and some changes to our own guild. I would love to remain President of the guild, …
