SRQG September 2007 Business Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President Pam McVey at 10:00 AM.

New members and guests were introduced and welcomed.

MINUTES:  The August minutes were published on the blog.  Pam asked for questions or corrections.  Illona Moore  moved that the minutes be accepted as published. Earlene Maffioli seconded.  Accepted. A copy of the minutes is available at the library table.

TREASURER’S REPORT:  Sandy Chan-Brown presented the treasurer’s report.  Please see Sandy for details.

NEW BUSINESS:  The Board has decided that we need to reinstate the position of historian.  If no one wants to do it, Sharon Fry is willing to do it.  Pam asked volunteers.  No one came forth.  Sharon Fry will be the Historian.
Lavella Cassinelli has raised the need for a mangle.  There is a lot of ironing required for the baby quilts, ie the fabric before it is cut, the backs and tops before they are sewn together and quilted.  They have been looking for one.  Dottie Zagar moved that the guild spend up to $300 for a mangle.  Phyllis Gallaway seconded for the purpose of discussion.  It was suggested that the amount be $500.  It was also suggested that we look into other ways to have ironing done.  Perhaps someone knows of a dry cleaner, laundry, etc who would be willing to do a large amount of ironing for us pro-bono once or twice a year.  Dottie amended her motion that the guild spend up to $500.  Angie Kiker seconded.  Passed.
Pam McVey read a thank you from the Santa Rosa YWCA for the quilts that the guild donated to them.
