September Business Meeting Minutes

Santa Rosa Quilt Guild
Business Meeting
Sept. 2, 2010

The meeting was called to order by President Jan Andrews at 10:03 a.m.

Pam McVey introduced 1 new member and 2 guests.

Treasurer’s Report: Phyllis reported that income exceeded expenses in August. There
was good attendance at the Aug. workshop, the fees were enough to pay the instructor. She also
explained that the reserve fund balance is kept high in case funds don’t come in as budgeted.
More volunteers are needed for our fundraiser at Marie Callenders.

Elaine Tucker wants everyone to know that there are CDs in the library of photos of Dolly’s
party, Show and Tell quilts. They are full size pictures.
Melissa Trunick reports the bus trip to PIQF will cost $35.00 for members, $43.00 for nonmembers.
The bus will load at the Park and Ride lot by the Veterans Building. It is a good idea
to car-pool to the lot; people could also organize car-pools and follow the bus to the show.
Sharon Fry explained for new members that she will make e-mail notices for members to be sent
to the entire roster of the Guild. Photos of quilts for the DVD will be taken during a Sew Day
Oct. 28th. The cost is $1.00 per quilt, there will be a sign-up sheet for time slots. There will be
no charge for BOM, Sew-a-Row, Challenge, group, or Friendship quilts. The DVD can also
include information on title, maker, quilter, etc, if desired. The DVD will sell for $7.00 in
advance, $10.00 after Oct. 28th.
