September 2012 Meeting Notes

Columbus Modern Quilt Guild – September 20
Two Peas in a Pod Meeting
Next month is our Second Anniversary Party! Here’s the scoop…
·         Bring your paint chip masterpiece! Your name should be covered and your paint chip attached somewhere on the front. Oh, and put your item in a paper bag so that everything is anonymous. More detailed rules are on the CMQG blog, so check them out. And of course we’ll have fabulous prizes for 1. Best use of paint chip colors 2. Best use of wonky 3. Viewers choice.
·         There will also be food – a signup sheet was sent around. If you didn’t get a chance to sign up, just bring something tasty (and if it matches your paint chip colors and is actually edible, you might get extra credit!). Email if you need a reminder of what you signed up to make!
·         We’ll also have games. Nicole volunteered to act as coordinator. Thanks, Nicole! Keep an eye out on the guild blog so you’ll know what you need to bring to play.
·         Leadership. This year, Dana, Abbe, and Stacy have been tri-chairs. If anyone else is interested in helping; just say so! Barb has been scribe – that job can move to someone else if anyone is interested as well. Cristin is going to share some of her responsibilities with Jacqueline too.
Stacy is talking to NQA about a possible exhibit of CMQG wall hangings (or something similar) at the 2013 show so stay tuned for more info.
Kathy G. has been working on bringing guest speakers to Columbus.  More to come on this as well.
Trish Preston was our speaker. She is the owner and founder of Two Peas in a Pod. She shared a great presentation on what it really takes to start a new business in the quilt world  called “My Handmade Story”. It was really well done. She has some new patterns coming out soon and check her website  to learn about "Sip and Sews" she is hosting in the Columbus area - there's one on October 13th! 
See you all next month at the P-A-R-T-Y!
