November 2018 General Meeting Minutes

IEMQG General Meeting Minutes
November 3, 2018
Mountain Shadows Mobile Home Community Clubhouse
4040 Piedmont Drive, Highland, CA 92346

The meeting was called to order at 2:05 p.m. by Laura Greene, President.


Welcome – Warm-up

The Warm-up statement was “Candy makes me more focused for quilting.”  Attendees grouped under the sign that best represented their response to that question – Strongly Agree, Agree, Slightly Disagree, and Strongly Disagree.  After a few minutes of discussing the topic in the various groups, Laura awarded the door prize to the person who compared chocolate to other candy.

Fund Raiser

Laura reported that at our Upcycle Event, we made as much or more, money that one day than we did when we were doing an upcycle table at every meeting.


Laura announced that the board has been working on changing the Bylaws over the last six months, one section at a time.  The revised Bylaws are now posted on our website; we need to have them posted for at least one month before we have the general membership vote to accept the Bylaws as revised.  Laura explained that our Bylaws do not specify how many consecutive years a person can hold a board position, because with our relatively small membership, we do not want to get to the point that many guilds have come to, where they have no one who is willing to serve on the board.  She also noted that the national MQG bylaws do not mention any term limitations.

Committee Reports

Cat Wallace, VP of Programs announced plans for our holiday party, which will be December 1 at the Mountain Shadows Clubhouse, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Everyone should bring three fat quarters to play Left, Right, Center.  Cat handed out fabric squares for each person to make a nine-patch block for a Tic Tac Toe/Bingo game she has planned.  The leftover blocks will be sewn into a charity quilt at a later date.

Cat passed around a sign-up sheet for toppings for the chili bar.

Cat reminded us that our January meeting will feature a trunk show by Linda Sullivan.

Gayle Bennett, Treasurer reported that our new membership chairperson, RuthAnn Salera, is now accepting payments for our 2019 membership dues of $40.00.

Gayle Bennett reminded us that we all need to fill out and mail in the paperwork that was sent to us by Leslie from the Art Museum.   Quilts will be dropped off on Friday, November 30 – the museum is close to Gayle’s work, so she will try to arrange to deliver the quilts.  They will be displayed December 13 – December 30 and can be picked up January 11.

After Member University presentations, we enjoyed Show and Share.   We then had a discussion about fund raising options.

Raffles – Alison presented the raffle winner with a set of fat quarters.  Pat Klassen presented the name tag raffle winner with her prize.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:40 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Tricia Williams
