The May meeting is our Annual General Meeting where we discuss changes that may need to be made within the Guild. The Guild Members who have volunteered to be on the 2015-16 Executive will be presented. However, nominations from the floor for all positions will be accepted and if necessary, a vote will be held.
Each member of the 2014/2015 executive will be giving a short report regarding their position.
Joan H, a member of the guild will be giving a short demonstration on "How to Make a Computerized Quilt Label"
The Members of the Program Committee are presenting a Mini Trunk Show. Each Committee Member will show 2 of their quilts.
There will not be a vendor at this meeting.
Kim Z. and Rachel M., our Librarians, want to remind all guild members who have books out of the Library, that they need to be returned by the May Meeting. Also, no books can be taken out at the May Meeting.
We will be having "tea, juice and treats" at break time this meeting, so remember to bring your own mug.
