Hi Everyone! 
I hope that everyone that was going "home" had a safe trip. Yes, the Q people have told me about the nice WARM weather.  Next year I am staying later in to April.   We had a flat the first day before we even got out of the state.  Yes, I know, too many rocks in the trailer.  It has snowed 3 times since we got home.  There was 8 inches in the last storm on Thursday.  There was even thunder and lightening.
Since I can't find my car in all the snow, I have been sewing to beat the band.  I made the block from Janet's stained glass class and it is great. Have you tried it yet?   I love it.  Thank you Janet and all the other great teachers that shared with us this year. 
 I hope you are checking out the pictures on the web pages.  We have 2 web sites now.  Let me know which you like better.  The picsa address is  I have more pictures to post if I ever get away from my sewing machine.  Also, if I put the wrong name on your picture....PLEASE tell me or you will be called by that name forever. 
I hope for a newsletter about May 1 2008.  Let me know if you have news.

minutes from March 2008 meeting

The meeting was called to order by Natalie Schnieder on 3-04-08 at 1:00 PM in the Senior Center.
The Secretary and Treasurer's reports were read and approved. The total sale of the raffle quilt tickets was $1,490.00.
The secretarial duties were assumed by Gerry Parker and in Jan. 2009 there will be an election of officers.
A suggestion was made to form a committee to give guide lines and advise the president. Quilt show suggestions have been made, one of them being a display of antique quilts which could include just an antique block.
Gayle Atkinson was absent so no information was available about the bus trip to Eleanor Burns Show.
Members rosters and the updates are available. There are now 100 quilt members.
More pipes are needed for the quilt show. Abbie's husband will check out the feasibility of conduit and Marcie Pittner made the motion that Abbie's husband use discretion and purchase the pipes. Donna Reynolds made the motion that up to $500.00 could be spent on the purchase. Both motions were seconded and passed.
A committee headed by Peggy Barnes was formed to determine the quilt categories for next year's Quilt Show.
Natalie will bring the raffle tickets if people would like to take raffle tickets with them to sell this summer. Names and ticket numbers will be needed of those thickets going out this summer.
Upcoming classes include: 3-11-Janice Templeton will teach Silk Ribbon Embroidery, 3-18-Janet will teach Stained Glass Windows, 3-25-Alice will teach Circles.
The 2010 quilt still has one applique flower and many 25 block sections to be selected.
The first two weeks in April are the last meetings at the Senior Center this spring.
Next week is sack lunch followed by potluck on the 25th.
Donna Reynolds needs to speak with the members of Round Robin #1.
Meeting adjourned at 2:00 PM by Natalie Schneider, President.

Respectfully submitted by Secretary, Gerry Parker
