January 2016 meeting recap

Before we get into the nitty gritty regarding the January meeting, please note that the February meeting is being moved to Sunday, January 31st due to Super Bowl Sunday and all the amazing lqs fabric sales that are expected! Look for the official meeting announcement to be up on the blog soon!

We were happy to see so many smiling faces at our first meeting of the new year! We welcomed a new member, Barbara, and quite a few first time visitors. We hope you will all be back next time! We had to meet in the schoolhouse at The Pittsburgh Project due to a heating issue, but we do normally meet in the church building for all of you new faces.

Melissa, our outgoing president, led the meeting. Thank you for all of your guidance this past year, Melissa! It was a great year of growth and exciting opportunities!

New officer elections were held and our 2016 leadership lineup (followed by their brand spanking new guild email addresses) is as follows:

President: Amanda
VP of Programs: Sally
VP of Membership: Michele
Treasurer: Lauren
Social Media Coordinator: Cheralee

If you need to get in touch with any of these fabulous ladies, please use the email addresses above (also found on the "About Us" page of this website).

After elections, ideas for upcoming meeting topics were discussed. If you have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to email the guild or grab one of the new leaders at the next meeting! A request for a membership roster to be sent out to all the members was made, and we are working on that. Look for it soon!

Nikki, who is in the process of quilting the QuiltCon quilt, brought it with her to show off the progress. It is pretty stunning! The quilt will be sent to California prior to the next meeting, but it is expected to be at the March meeting for viewing and we have submitted it to the Three Rivers Quilt Show in the Group category. 

The quilting really pops on the back of the quilt! Nice job, Nikki!

New membership cards were handed out for 2016. If you did not get one please email Michele, the new VP of Membership. 

A lot of stunning pieces were displayed at Show and Tell:

New member, Barbara, showed off this stunner that she designed herself! Wow!

Lauren did some cool thread painting!
Aimee's Exploding Block quilt top that she is making for her daughter

Please check out the guild's Flickr page for all of the photos from the meeting.

The rest of the meeting time was spent coloring and chatting. 

This is Amanda signing off as social media coordinator. I look forward to serving as president in the coming year! :)
