Important Reminders


Dear Members:

Please read this post before the Thursday, 11/8 meeting.  We’ll be covering some end-of-the year business that you won’t want to miss.

Coyote & Multnomah Falls by Mireille Schaal, France. Quilts in this post were shown at the International Challenge Art Quilt Show in Yachats. The theme was Fairy Tales.

November Program

The Program  is ‘Recurring Motifs as Springboards to Inspiration’ by Dawn White.  

The Ugly Duckling by Francoise Bourdale, France

Voting: (Tis the Week Folks)

From President Phoebe Hein

New Officers:  The 2019-2020 Officers will be presented and voted on.

December Board Meeting Elimination:  There will be a motion to eliminate the  December Executive Board Meeting from By-Laws Article VI Sec 1d & Sec 4.

2020 Raffle Quilt ideas:  Be ready to present your ideas & vote on the 2020 Raffle Quilt.

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

Changes to the Standing Rules and Policies:  I’ll also give notice to some changes to the Standing Rules and Policies. We can vote on the Standing Rules at Thursday’s meeting, and the Exec Board will vote on the Policy changes at their meeting next week; this notice will fulfill the requirement to consult with the membership before changing them . . .
All of these changes are necessitated by the vote to change the fiscal year.
Ugh. Guess that’s enough parliamentary gobbly-gook for now. (But then it IS almost Thanksgiving, gobble, gobble . . .)
Regards, 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!

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!
