The original pattern was for a 67” square quilt – our raffle quilt will be approximately 83” X 98” when completed. The larger size is a more popular size with the public (anecdotal evidence from past experience with selling quilt raffle tickets to the public).</span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">·</span><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span></span><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">We want to have the quilt completed by June so that we have the entire summer and fall of 2015, as well as the Spring 2016 (good weather) to sell raffle tickets at various venues in the region.</span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 0.5in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in;"><span style="font-family: Wingdings; mso-fareast-font-family: Wingdings; mso-bidi-font-family: Wingdings;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Ø</span><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span></span><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">AQG Corresponding Secretary – report by Jan Queen</span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">·</span><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span></span><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Revised AQG Bylaws (Article 4A and 4B) as passed by membership at the January 2015 meeting, established a new AQG Executive Board Seat – Corresponding Secretary.

Linda stated that this relatively low fee for non-AQG participation in a workshop led by a “Professional, more costly” outside instructor would unfairly cost the guild much more in subsidizing the cost of the non-AQG participants in the workshop. Chris DeAngelis correctly pointed out that this fee scale had been discussed and passed by membership at a prior meeting (date unknown) and that we would need to have a membership vote to change the established fee schedule. However, due to the fact that only 16 of our 80+ guild members were in attendance at this meeting, a Motion was made to Table the review and vote on the entire Article 5-7 Bylaw revisions at the April guild meeting – at which time we would also revisit the fee schedule for AQG workshop participation. Motion was made by Chris DeAngelis. Seconded by Linda VanSchaick. Passed unanimously by 16 members at this meeting.</span></span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;</span></span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;">&nbsp;</p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&gt;&gt;Program Director VOlunteers Needed -&nbsp; by Jan Queen</span></span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">* We still need a replacement for our Program Director, Jeanne LaMay, who will finish her term as Program Director in December 2015. Actually, we need two Program Director volunteers – our program calls for 2 Program Directors to be appointed for 2 year terms, with one appointed in odd years and one appointed in even year, so that there is continuity in the Program Director committee. Jeanne has been doing this position on her own for the past 2 years and has done a wonderful job with presenting enjoyable workshop programs and activities during her tenure. If you are interested in taking over as a Program Director, please contact Jan Queen asap.<br></span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</span><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;">&nbsp;</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">NEW BUSINESS:</span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 0.5in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in;"><span style="font-family: Wingdings; mso-fareast-font-family: Wingdings; mso-bidi-font-family: Wingdings;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Ø</span><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span></span><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Magazine Subscriptions for AQG Library – </span></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Times New Roman;"> </span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt 1in; text-indent: -0.25in; mso-list: l1 level2 lfo1; tab-stops: list 1.0in;"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">·</span><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span></span><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Barb Singer advised AQG currently subscribes to 10 quilting magazines ( BH&amp;G American Patchwork and Quilting, Quilting Arts, Fons &amp; Porter Love of Quilting, Quilters Newsletter, McCall’s Quilting, McCall’s Quick Quilts, Quiltmaker, Quilter’s World, Machine Quilting Unlimited and Modern Quilts Unlimited.
