September 26, 2013

We had our Potluck at the meeting. There were a lot of "prices" with everyone putting 10 cents in for each name in the pot. We made enough money to get up to $20 for the free membership drawing. Our next potluck we should be able to do the drawing of a name to win a years membership with TAS.


We do have a new rule about who is eligible to when the membership - since the last two membership went to people that showed up 1 time all year, and won. One was won by the other group and even though they were invited to all the potlucks, only showed up for the Christmas one, taking all the prizes with them. So, the membership drawing is going to be for those that attend the potlucks where we earn the money for the next free membership. In other-words, if someone came 1 time to the potluck and it took 3 potlucks to make the money, then their name would go in 1 time, while someone else may have been there all three times. They would get  3 chances. It's a lot more fair for those who are helping earn the money.


Deanna come for a quick visit as here husband was waiting in the truck - outside the window. She was checking with everyone to see what was new and exciting. Then she left before we ate.


It was a good meeting with everyone working on projects and chatting away, while some of us listened and worked.


Everyone had a great time. We welcomed 2 of our 3 new members as well. Carolann and Pat who were able to see how crazy we can get. We look forward to seeing Cynthia at our meetings as well.

We were reminded that we will need to go to Quilter's Junction's new store next month. We also found out they rented out the room we were using, so it's probably a better reason for Quilter's Junction to move. She was loosing the space she was able to use till they found renters. The new place of business is the old Sherwood Forest Farms building in downtown Centralia. It's on Tower Avenue.


Two more blocks were turned in for friendship blocks. This one was Susy's block.


This block is what Susy did for Connie. She had an interesting pattern for all of us.

3 Friendship quilt blocks for JoAnn are still missing - if you haven't gotten them done, please do so. This is a February block, and needs to be finished. Lynn needs one more person to do a block for her, so if you haven't done one yet, please pick up the block information.

Since Quilter's Junction had a 20% sale on everything in the store, we all did our shopping on the way out the door. It was busy all day with quilters coming in and buying a lot of stuff. It helped the store, giving them less to haul over to the new store.

We all stayed till 2:30 pm and then called it a day. A few of us had other things to do. It was great to see what everyone was working on, and we all had fun! That's the part that counts.

JAYDEE PRICE HAS POSTPONED HER DRAWING CLASS TILL NOVEMBER. OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE OUR USUAL MEETINGS.

MARY ARNOLD'S CLASS - BEGINNING APPLIQUE - IS FULL AND THOSE WHO SIGNED UP NEED TO PAY LYNN OR EVELYNA FOR THE CLASS. LYNN IS LOOKING INTO HAVING HER COME AGAIN ON A FRIDAY, SO THAT BOTH GROUPS CAN ATTEND AS WELL. CONTACT QUILTER'S JUNCTION IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CALL LYNN AND SEE IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE THAT SIGNED UP.
