A Note from Jean Amundson
Bylaw Amendment Motion:
As Parliamentarian, I’ll be making the bylaw amendment motion. In addition to the Article VI, Section 1, item d change, I’ll be adding a change to Article IX, Section 1. I’ll present the motion for amendments and have a copy for everyone, and hopefully someone will second it. However, we won’t vote on the changes until the Dec mtg, thus fulfilling the requirement to give the membership at least 10 days’ notice before the vote. Jean

A Note from Sue Stephenson
If you missed our 1st Thursday at Ruth’s on 11/1, boy did you miss out! Such a great group of ladies, and we got so much done! We completed 12 “sit upon” pillows for kids at Seashore Literacy and 5 pillows for the hospital. We also made up 3 quilt top kits and 12 kits to make chemo bags. This was an incredibly productive 4 hours! Now comes your part – at the guild meeting this week we will have chemo bag kits, quilt top kits, teddy bear patterns and quilt bundles (top, batting and back to quilt) for you to take home and complete.Please come by our table and pick up something to help out those in need in our community.
Additionally, for any of you who took home the materials for the hospital’s Christmas baby stockings, it’s time to get those returned to us for delivery to the hospital in time for those December births!
Updated stats for 2018:
- Quilts delivered 146
- Quilts in inventory 40
- Teddy bears delivered 4
- Hospital pillows delivered 33
- Sit upon pillows delivered 32
- Totes delivered 39
- Totes inventory 10
- Pillow cases delivered 25
- Burp rags delivered 35
- Burp rags inventory 48
Going forward, our biggest need is small/med quilts, 40” square up to a lap size. We are trying to use flannel to back kid’s quilts as much as possible.
Thanks to everyone who has participated in any way with Community Quilters. There are so many needs out there!
Documentation: This coming Saturday November 10 from 9-3:00 is the last one for 2018. If you’ve signed up to work or to have a quilt documented we look forward to seeing you there. If you’re interested in helping please contact me.
