Workshop: There are still four openings in the Larkin Van Horn Sept. 18 class. There is a waitlist for the Sept. 19, 2009 class.
Comfort Quilts: Work meeting on July 30, 2009 was well attended and productive. There are many assembled quilts that need to be quilted. There is a question as to whether there should be a December 31, 2009, comfort quilt session. Rosemary Slizs will ask about it again in September.
Quilt Show: Ruthie Rasmussen and Rosemary Slisz asked members to sign up to help at the show and to let them know if you want to demonstrate. Irene has received 20 quilts for the small quilt auction toward the goal of 60.

Program Coordinator, Judy Crosby asked to be notified if any small groups or individuals are willing to present a program for a day meeting in the upcoming year.
Famous Quilter Classes. Linda Postlethwait expressed concern about the upcoming class being opened to non-guild members too soon. Committee member Jane Ferguson said this was done to help fill the class. Mary Lee said our Policies and Procedures say classes will be open to the public 30 days in advance.
Motion by Kay Fiero and seconded by Diane Sewald: “Add to Policies and Procedures that non-members who wish to sign up for a class be put on a waiting list and they will be notified 30 days in advance if space is available.” Linda Parkhouse offered an amendment stating that non-members would be notified six weeks in advance. Amendment defeated. Original motion passed.
