Call to order [Olivia]
Oliva called the meeting to order and welcomed the new members and guests.
After much moaning and groaning at the idea of an icebreaker, Jennifer asked everyone to count off and break into groups. We then discussed what we would like to accomplish and learn related to quilting in 2018. It was a good chance to meet some people that we don’t normally sit next to, and we learned that once we start talking about quilts it it hard to get people to stop.
Treasurer’s Report [Katey]
Katey provided the treasurer’s report. We will not be posting the accounts balances online. However, any member is welcome to ask for the information and it will be provided at each meeting. 2018 dues of $35 are payable to Katey. We now have the capability to take credit card payments in person via SQUARE. You may pay online from the website via Paypal. (Paypal and Square dues are slightly higher to cover the cost of associated fees.) Cash and personal checks are accepted as well.
We have magnets, vinyl stickers and buttons for sale. See Katey to purchase them.
Magnets are $5 each
Stickers are $1 each
Buttons are $1 each
All paid members will receive a button and a sticker as part of their dues, please see Katey to get yours. The stickers and magnets are weatherproof, so feel free to advertise the guild on your car. We can accept credit card payments for both merchandise and dues via our new Square reader.
Also, check out the new Zazzle site for custom shirts, bags, cups and more! (Seriously, I hope someone gets the flask.) The guild receives 10% on the purchase price of every item. There is a 15% off discount through Zazzle on everything in our store right now.

February Program- 2017 Quilt Along Wrapup
It was so amazing to see all the participation in the 2017 quilt along based on the Material Girl Quilts Layer Cake Sampler. It was fun to see how the different fabrics and design choices impacted the quilts.
