Hello all you quilters,

BBC has a story about a man in the U.K. who received a quilt as a child after World War II. He kept it for 70 years because it meant so much to him. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34515388?SThisFB%3FSThisFB
5:00 PM – Doors Open
6:00 PM – Welcome Guests and New Members
6:10 PM – Annual NLQG Pot Luck
Please bring a dish to feed 4-5 people along with a list of ingredients (for food allergy reasons) to share with your fellow members. As always, guests are welcome to attend. Please also bring a place setting with a plate, silverware, and cup.
7:15 PM – Annual NLQG Meeting
This is an important time for the quilt guild. Your time and participation are highly encouraged. We will be discussing and voting on the election of new officers, the annual budget, and committee appointments. Please review the budget as it was printed in the attached newsletter so that we are prepared to discuss and vote on it. In order to constitute a quorum (meaning any vote we take tomorrow night will be valid) a minimum of 30% of the membership must be in attendance. At the time of the printing of the 2013-2014 directory we had 115 members, meaning that for any vote to be considered valid and in accordance with our bylaws a minimum of 34 members will need to be at tomorrow night’s meeting.
We will also have:
- reports from officers and committees
- Block of the Month & Name Tag Drawing
- Show and Tell
Remember, we need to put away all tables and chairs before we leave at 9:00 PM.
- Name tag
- Place Setting and food to share!
- Show & Tell items
- A Big Smile!
See you tomorrow!
