April 2010 Guild Meeting

This posting should have been before the last one, but, oh well, I am doing it now.

Our April Guild Meeting was held on the 15th of the month at the Newtonia Community Center. It was our first official meeting with the new board members ready to take on their new jobs. Lucy conducted as our new President. Bobbie, our new Vice President, and Paula, our new Secretary were there to lend our support. Miyuki, our Treasurer, was finishing up school and could not attend.
We were presented with our new "Challenge". We were each given 15 strips of white fabric to write our names on. These will be given out later to everyone so that each person receives one of each member's names. These will be used however we want to incorporate them in a project. This "Name that Challenge" is due for display at our July Meeting.
Our "Whirlygig" blocks were given to a possible new member since there were no names entered for the drawing.
Our new BOM was introduced by Lucy. We are starting out the year with a back to basics, "Wonky Block".
It is to be constructed of Bright scraps in "chunks", "strips", or "strings" with at least one round in black and whites. It is a large block to measure 17 1/2" when completed.
Our program for the evening was on managing our scrap bags. We were given directions on how to cut up our scraps to make them more manageable for use in projects. A fun way to tie in our BOM with our program. So get "Scrapin'".
