EMQG October 2020 Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who was able to join the meeting on Zoom.

Dues for 2021: A motion was made and passed unanimously to reduce dues for 2021 only to $25 since the guild is not paying rent to the Garden Club. Dues can be paid on a sliding-scale, $25-$40, to cover the cost of EMQG's membership with MQG.

President:  Ken Casey

Vice President:  Bonnie Glass

2021 Challenges: Ken introduced three challenges for 2021

January – April: Paint Chip

In November each member will be mailed the membership form plus two paint chips. The challenge will be to make something in the colors of the two chips. Members accepting the challenge may also choose one other fabric color and can make anything they choose, ie. quilt, pillow, purse, etc. Nela also suggested reaching out to other members and sharing fabrics.
