EMQG Board members were announced.

Madyson stated she had worked on the bylaws for the non-profit status created for EMQG.  The board members will be meeting to decide what they will eventually be and then bring it to the members.

Lane County Fair registration starts May 1, 2014.

Coburg Quilt Show:  July 26, 2014 9am - 4pm. 
Quilts to enter are $5 for the 1st, then $2 for each additional one.  A 4” sleeve is required.  July 14, 2014 is the deadline for entries, and there is an entry form available online.

Karen announced that EMQG will have a table at this show and is looking for volunteers to help with managing the table.  Also, the  “Urban Chicken” quilt, headed up by Kelly Duke and made by members, will be a raffle quilt.

April:  Zippered clutch bag.  Many beautiful and creative bags were exchanged.  : )

May swap is a potholder.  Kathleen challenges everyone to try paper piecing the top!  She also brought some Insul-brite cut in 9 inch squares to the meeting for those who didn’t have any and want to participate. She also had some strips of magnets to share for those ‘thinking ahead’ to the July swap.  What a sweetheart!!

Jessica requested an “improv block” for her bee block.

Remember to identify yourself via a note on the block when the block is returned to the owner.
