Old Business:

Catskill Mountain Quilters Hall of Fame- induction photos and album will be shown at next meeting. Sharon reported that she had calls and       e-mails from attendees that said enjoyed the food and this church where it was held. There were requests for recipes. Thank you to all who helped and congratulations to Kathy Livingston for her induction. The group is forming a committee to work on the next show in one year. The location will be changed to the Margaretville Telephone Company Center. There will be more room, handicap accessibility, a large parking lot, security system and there will be no charge to use the building. It will be held the last weekend in September, the 25-27th. It is the same weekend as the Cauliflower Festival. The County Tourism Board and the Chamber of Commerce are involved. There will be a discussion of a new book, “Unbroken Thread” by author Steve Hoars

Empire Quilt Fest: Diamonds and Daffodils to be held on April 4 & 5th at Shenendehowa High School East. The speakers are booked. There will be no luncheon this year and the cost will be lower to hear the speaker because of this. There will be more social media and electronic technology used this show to update the event. Betsy and Kathy are reaching out to vendors. If you enter a quilt in the EQF show it may also be entered in next year Hall of Fame show. The other participating quilt guilds involved in the show have had a raffle quilt and quilt baskets to raffle in the past. Sharon suggested we sell something at our table perhaps a fat quarter sale, charging a dollar or items to give away. Two pretty fabric daffodils in shades of yellow were show by Diane Warner as a possible vendor ribbon. She said they were not difficult to make.

Fidget quilts: Colleen DeMuth reported that she delivered the donated quilts to Teresian House Nursing Home in Guilderland where her aunt is a patient. The activity director was very appreciative. She looked at each one and said they would be given out to patients.
