Great Second Meeting

We've doubled! At this rate, we'll have over 600 members by the holidays! Okay a bit overly optimistic, but it was great to have 16 modern quilters show up for our second organizational meeting.

We discussed bylaws, nonprofit status, dues, logo, meeting schedule and activities. Committees were formed to draft bylaws and membership form. Dues were set at $25 per year, but no dues were collected yet.  The most satisfying accomplishment was reaching consensus on our schedule!
  • bimonthly face-to-face meetings for show/share and demos
  • alternate bimonthly online block exchanges/challenges
  • semi-annual sew-ins around a technique or topic lead by volunteer members
Then  the FUN part -- Show and Tell. These are just a few of the fun things we are working on.
