Over the past few meetings there has been much discussion about our current meeting location... in the Arts Council Building in Ocean Grove. Major concerns have been the monthly fee of $25, lack of air-conditioning in hot summer months, parking issues during certain times of the year, and no availability for sew-ins.
Natalie did a stellar job of working with the VFW to gain a FREE space, but the street side parking and meters made this a less desirable location.
Sherre secured permission for the guild to meet at her church... Colts Neck Reformed Church (by Delicious Orchards) which has plenty of free parking, a large space for us to spread our sewing out, and is climate controlled.
After a bit more discussion the guild members present at the last meeting voted on and passed a motion to keep our monthly meetings in Ocean Grove... and hold our sew-ins in Colts Neck.
An advantage of remaining connected to the Arts Center is its focus on the ARTS, the potential for quilt shows to be held there, and the beneficial outreach in connection with the town—such as “quilt-ins” on the boardwalk to help publicize our existence.
2016 Queen Bees...
Keep your eyes peeled on your email inbox. A requests for monthly Queen Bees will be arriving soon. Maybe you would like to choose your birthday month? Don't be shy!! If you aren't interested in making a quilt for yourself... think about being a Queen Bee and donating it to charity.
A HUGE, heartfelt THANK YOU to all the out-going board members. We wouldn't be a guild at all without your 'vision' and hard work. You gathered us together, found a space, and frankly 'made it happen'! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season... and a FABULOUS and CREATIVE
