NEXT MEETING – Feb 25, 2014
IMPORTANT: We are no longer able to meet at Bexley Methodist Church because of the their addition and renovation construction. Our new meeting place is:
The Olde Gahanna Sanctuary
82 N High St
Gahanna, OH 43230
A free public parking lot is located across the street and behind the Sanctuary. Also, the Creekside business district on Mill Street provides an enclosed, underground parking facility within easy walking distance.
PROGRAM: Our program for February is what was originally planned for January. The 2013 Co-Presidents will hand-off their duties to the new 2014 Co-Presidents. There will be an introduction of all the new 2014 officers, committees, programs and workshop chairs. A lot of information about 2014 will be revealed – the Challenges, Bus Trip, Workshops, Retreats, Secret Pals and Quilt Show. Many of the sign-ups for these events will be available, including the Bus Trip.
Our first Challenge for the year will be the “Polka Dot Challenge”. Bring in 1-1/8 yd of polka dot fabric in a gallon freezer bag with your name on it. The fabrics will be gathered during the Feb and Mar meetings. They will be cut by the Challenge Committee, swapped and your bag with the swapped fabric will returned to you at the April meeting. You must use every fabric in your bag to make a quilt. You can add more fabrics and there are no size restrictions. A finished quilt is preferred but you can also enter an unfinished top. The entry fee is $5, and prizes will be awarded.
Remember, dues are due. You can renew your membership for the 2014 year at the same price of $25. Please see Bert Ward to pay your dues.
And as usual, we will have an awesome Show and Tell.
These are the new officers approved at the November meeting:
- Co-Presidents: Jennie Myers & Nikki O’Reilly
- Co-Vice-Presidents: Catie Gynn & Janice Pryor
- Treasurer: Bert Ward
- Secretary: Laura McLaughlin
