Silent Auction Sneak Peak

Have you heard the news? Julie has decided to donate her Single Girl Quilt to Monday's silent auction in it's current form. Minimum bid is set at $510. If you'd like more details, check out our Flickr group discussion or feel free to send Julie a Flickr message. If there are no bids at tomorrow's meeting, but you're interested in her quilt, be sure to talk with her at tomorrow's meeting.

Monday, March 31st is the night! We've got an agenda packed full of fun and we can't wait to see you all there. All members should have received a copy of our draft constitution and bylaws via e-mail. Please be sure to read this over before the meeting to save time. We will have the document up on the projector, but you may want to bring a printed copy from home. We will be voting on this document and also on our registration with the Modern Quilt Guild. If you have any questions in the meantime, please get in touch with one of the members of the leadership team.
Also, don't forget we'll be starting our UFO challenge ($2 per item), having our silent auction and sharing our quilty treasures at the donation table. So be sure to come with cash or cheques and get ready to grab some fantastic finds!

That's right, folks.  Not only do you need to remember to change your clocks, but you need to change your calendars, or at least the date for March's OMQG meeting.  Same time, same place, but different date.  We'll see you all March 31st instead of the 24th.

Be sure to take a quick peak at your e-mails as well.  The quilty business fairy was hard at work e-mailing members copies of our proposed constitution and bylaws for voting at our next meeting.  We'll also be voting on registration with the Modern Quilt Guild, so you might want to start prepping those arm muscles now...

And don't forget to start collecting loose change and practice emptying your pockets.  We'll be having a silent auction (cash or cheque accepted) and registering for our first ever Unfinished Object Challenge ($2 per project).

See you all March 31st!  Happy sewing :)
