I had 5 people pay their 2016 dues. They are Dwala Canon, Kim Urchek, Tammy Sorenson, Julie Vannoy and Helen Horvat.
There were 3 visitors and they all brought something to work on. They were Carol Balley, Karen Thompson and Mary Prout. I don't know if they were previous visitors or not.
1. Nomination Committee - Sharon Gunderson had already volunteered for the committee along with Cheri Talbot and Emily Scudder.
2. Raffle license - we thanked Chris Sundberg for her work. Chris said the license has to be renewed every year and it costs $100.00. She has to file a report quarterly to the state even if we haven't sold any tickets. Her first report is due March 30, 2016. She said we need a separate bank account for the selling of raffle tickets. Chris thinks she has to be on location whenever the Guild sells raffle tickets.
3. Sew Expo - we have enough people for the Sew Expo booth, more are welcome. No one knows where the banner is.
4. Townsend Cutter & Blades - Joanna was not at the meeting, so I brought the cutter and blades home. Pam Sisk and Judy Peterson ? if we have the cutter/blades insured. Judy & Pam brought up the fact the blades are marked CRFG and the blade size with magic marker. Judy said she was at a camp where someone switched a blade with another student that wasn't in very good condition.
5. Wool Buy - Saturday, April 23rd.
6. Cheryl Bollenbach Class - Pam Sisk, Ginny Waldera and Judy Peterson will handle the logistics of classes with Cheryl Bollenbach. They are looking at July. Cheryl said she wanted to know what kind of a class people want and if it would be a 2 or 3 day class. It will be in Arvada. Pam had people who were interested fill out a note card with what they would like to learn. Cheryl said she could do faces, an open class, door project - you would work on a small project 3 days in a row that would fit on a door. She said she could do an open class with anything from small cut to wide cut. Pam got 12 replies from people in the room. I told her she should send out an email to all the members. Cheryl said she also had time in May and June.
7. Pam Sisk brought in the Guild library with cards you could sign the books out. I put out the Green Mtn Rug School brochures Mary Ann gave me. Cheryl brought in postcards for the Estes Park Wool Market - June 9th & 10th.
8. Theresa talked about the Bead Show at the Mart and brought in a sign up sheet. When it got back to Theresa only 1 person had signed up.
9. The 2016 Hook-In was discussed. Sharon Gunderson asked everyone for donations, anything fiber related. Tammy & Kim have a group to work on table centerpieces.
10. Demo - Pam did a demo of wool sheep with rusted carpenter nails as legs. She had patterns for whoever wanted them and she explained how they are constructed. She brought in wool for people to use for their sheep and embellishments for the sheep also.
11. Cheryl asked people to bring in primitive rugs for the March & April meetings. The August/September issue of the ATHA magazine is all about primitive rug hooking. The magazine will be 16 pages longer than normal. She wants all the pictures she can get. The issue will have articles and instructions from primitive rug hooking teachers.
12. Kim Urchek was given recycled wool from someone that was moving and didn't want to take it with them. The wool had been washed and it filled the whole aisle way of the room. It was free and there was nothing left. Thank you Kim!
