September 13, 2010

President Vicki called the meeting to order.  The restaurant quilt was displayed and will be given to Solid Ground owners at a later date for use of their building.

Reminder was given that the  PW guild quilt challenge is due at the November meeting. The largest it can be is 18" x 18" and all four seasons must be on the quilt. It does not have to be a quilt, can be anything you wish to make. 

A brief summary of the Christmas party was given.

Vicki asked for volunteers to be on a committee for nominating members for the new 2011 board. No one volunteered to form the committee or be on the board. 

A reminder was also given for Craft Fair donations which will be the guilds fund raiser for the year. The Craft Fair will be at Pueblo West High School October 9 and 10, 2010.

The Wounded Warrior Quilt for the month was shown.

Dixie Moorcroft entered this machine embroidered quilt into the Colorado State Fair & won BEST OF SHOW. It is a beautiful quilt.

Sew and Share was and always is enjoyed by all members!!!

Block of the Month drawing for the blue/white log cabin blocks was divided between two winners.  Heidi presented the November block.

Cheryl Phillips from Montrose, Colorado was our presenter for the evening.  She has a unique system for making quilts and demonstrated many of her techniques to members.
