October Meeting Minutes

Quick points of business: 

  • New members - Claudia is our Welcome Wagon, feel free to ask questions.  Also, most of our guild's "businessy" things will be posted here on the blog. Make sure you stay up to date!
  • We may be able to get someone to come to our December sew-in to sharpen scissors for the low cost of $5 per pair.  Approximately 10 people would be interested.  Stephanie to let us know at the next meeting if this is happening.
  • We would like to organize ‘extracurricular’ social meet-ups in months we have no sew-In.  For November, we'll have the metro walking too (see below) so suggestions are welcome for January.

Cheryl Arkison trunk show: 
Friday Oct 21st 7-9pm at the Verdun Elementary (631 Melrose in Verdun).
Free for workshop attendees, $5 for members, $10 for non-members
We are also looking for volunteers to bring snacks/drinks.  If you are interest, please contact Stephanie.

Cheryl Arkison workshop (FULL):
