We enjoyed a delicious variety of food for our potluck and followed that with several desserts prior to the business meeting.

Treasurer’s Report: Sharon Nesbitt informed Sharon that the account balances were the same as at the November meeting. She was not able to attend this meeting.

Minutes from the last meeting were posted on the website and a copy was on each table. The only correction was the spelling of a quilt shop that was closing to Pookie’s.  

Old Business:

The snowman quilt that was made last year is hanging in front of the Middleburgh Library again this year.

EQF: Kathy Livingston reported that 23 vendors have signed up to participate in the show in April at present. She requested that the daffodil ribbon be shown at the January meeting. Colleen DeMuth will bring the vendor ribbons she has, that were made by guild members for past shows.   

   

New Business: Sharon Vrooman brought up that we only have 13 members at this Christmas party/meeting. A discussion was held about it being more difficult for many of us to attend a night meeting especially after the clocks are turned back in the fall and it is dark for our ride. It is also more difficult to drive at night when it snows. A motion was made by Betsy Macomber to survey members about holding the meeting from 1:00-3:00 on the second Tuesday of the month if the church meeting room is available. Edna Lower will check to see if room is available at that time and day. The motion was seconded by Emily Davis.

Name Tag Drawing was won by Deborah Gibbons
