September 2019 Meeting Recap- Carol Ann Graham

We had a pretty packed meeting in September--it's that amazing time when we have to review the by-laws of the guild, and hold elections for next year's executive!
By-laws and Election Call Karen reviewed the proposed by-law changes, and a Policy Paper on promotion and support on the guild's social media platforms. 
Once that was done, Adrienne made the call for elections.  At the time of the meeting, all five of the executive positions were open for the 2020 year.  Each of the current position holders got up and gave a brief description of their duties, and took any questions.  
Block Lotto Becky demonstrated the last block lotto of the year, which is a shorter one, and only ran for a month.  Blue and White crosses, scrappy and using mid-blue range fabrics-fun!

Valerie gave an absolutely fascinating talk, starting with how her architecture training has influenced her quilting and fibre arts work.  
She talked about what she sees as the similarities between architectural process and the quilting process, and focused on design, texture, depth, colour, shape and other aspects.  She also talked about how she started doing workshops with students.  She uses a wealth of techniques, including collage, applique, and hand stitching.  Most recently she has been doing aerial views and using laser cut fabrics.

Valerie was a really inspirational speaker, and her quilts and process are very unique, and beautiful.  If you haven't seen …
