Janet Carpenter mentioned that our guild should be a chapter of the Utah Valley Quilting Guild. That will gives us free advertizing in the “Beeline” twice a year. It is free to apply. We need to have a president (of which we have two!), at least two other members and have a chapter name. The names we voted on were: Longarm Lassies, Longarm Ladies, Valley Gals, Longarm Q Ts. Longarm Q Ts became the winner. So our Chapter title is Longarm Q Ts. It was also suggested that we should have a web site. Natalia Bonner said that she would begin a blog site for us. Liza Anne Hall said that she would develop a web site for us. Myrl will apply on line to become a chapter.
Our Co-president talked about her 40 years of quilting experience. She has many things that she could teach us. There are many in our guild that could teach us as well. Janet passed out a survey to find the interests of the members. There are many possibilities for our guild meetings. Teachers outside our group can be invited to come and teach a concept. Our members could take classes and then teach us. The survey should help us make a calendar for the coming year.
