Next Meeting This Wednesday!

Just a quick reminder the next meeting of The Jersey Shore Quilt Guild is THIS Wednesday... and it's a busy one.


According to our By-Laws, Board members must be elected once a year and can serve no more than 2 consecutive terms. Not only is it 'that time of year' for nominations, but our board has served for the allotted time and must step down. They have all done a wonderful job, and I'm sure if we all had our way we would like them to continue in their positions, but that's not how the system works.

I hope you have been giving some thought about a position YOU might like to fill.  Elections will be at the December meeting.

Charity Quilt...

If you are participating in The Modern Quilt Guild Charity Quilt Challenge, please bring your completed Improv block to the meeting. We will be laying out the blocks and, as a team completing the top.

Check out the MQG website and peek at how other guilds from around the world interpreted the rules of the challenge. Given the same set of directions and fabric selection guidelines, it's crazy how different each quilt is. It only goes to prove how unique we all are... not only as individuals, but as a cohesive guild as well.

New Location...

There has been a lot of discussion off and on about a new location. The subject was broached quite a while ago because our host has initiated a use fee of $25 a month, plus an additional fee for sew-ins. It had been suggested we seek out other alternatives. Time moved on, and the discussion was dropped. As this year comes to a close we need to seriously have a conversation about this and decide what we would like to do. If you have any ideas of meeting places, and are willing to check them out and provide information at this meeting, that would be WONDERFUL!!

And there's MORE...

There are a few more items on the agenda for this meeting, and we really need your input. Please make every effort to attend. If you simply CAN'T make it, please email a board member with your thoughts so you can still be represented.


As you can see we have a lot on our plate this month... soooooo... Deb will bring a plate of home baked chocolate chip cookies for a kick of extra energy! BYOB (bring your own beverage).
