September 21 Annual Meeting & President's Challenge

The guild's annual meeting included a business meeting with election of officers and adoption of the 2017-2018 budget. After the main business, guild members who participated in the President's Challenge explained their creations using that fabric. Photos of the varied ways members used the fabric are posted below. New challenge fabric made up the centerpieces on the tables. Also, Glenda announced a new challenge for the year--a Row Quilt. The first instructions were printed in the October newsletter. Sign up will happen at the October 5 guild meeting. After the meeting adjourned, we enjoyed a tasty potluck and a chance to visit.
