Vice President (V.P.) discussion:
Denise was nominated and voted into office.
We decided (by vote) that the V.P. duties are:
1) fill in for the president in the event of catastrophic illness or grave misfortune
We also decided (by vote) that at this time we will have no money (dues) or rules. Also that at this time we do not see the need for bylaws.
The last vote (of the evening) decided that our group is a "no apology" zone. We should not apologize for things that we don't like about our hard work, but we can ask for critique or assistance with design from our guild friends. :)
Project Modern Challenge 2 was discussed- Monochromatic Challenge details here
Solids challenge was announced. It is being sponsored by Robert Kaufman's Kona
cotton series. Rough guidelines are here
. The final guidelines will be delineated at the March meeting.
Penny shared about Pouches by K. Sudo. She liked the pictures, but felt that the instructions were not complete. (I am not sure that the spelling is right on this author, I was unable to find a link for it--Penny??)
Nancy brought her "go-to" book for all of her quilting questions, Your Guide to Quilting from Joann's.
Cyndy also uses this book a lot for things like setting triangles. She said that it has great tables for figuring out all of the cutting guidelines.
Katie prefers the Internet because you can find whatever you need there!
Show and Tell was fantastic.
Jessica almost forgot to have us pick our snack mat swap (maybe she should remember to eat dinner before meetings? Probably!) There were many happy swappers.
The next swap is a "Softie" with character.
