angie relayed some announcements from gina at the little general. it's too late for you to do anything about the first (sorry), but there was a charm swap on saturday morning at 9 am at her shop. she does this every month, so get on her newsletter list and go to one or two or 100. :)
i'm stealing the second announcement straight from the little general blog, so i don't mess anything up:
The Little General invites you to join her for “Midnight In Paris,” a Grand Opening celebration! October 27th from 7-11, the “alley” in front of the shop will be transformed into a Parisian market street. Festivities will include beer and wine tasting, late night shopping at The Little General, the Painter’s Palate and Nekkid Dave, Camino coffee and baked yummies, live music (and maybe some dancing!?), local artists and handmade goods, and an outdoor screening of the film! This is an event you don’t want to miss!next. leanne brendle from the yadkin arts council (i think?) has requested quilts for an upcoming quilt show called "winter heat - not your gramma's quilt"... you know, bright and nontraditional. they need them by mid-december and will have them until february. a hanging sleeve is required. let angie know if you're interested and she can give you the contact info.
we recognized outgoing officers and coordinators. by recognized, i mean, they (we) got chocolate!!!
and angie already posted it, but we had a little chat about our possible charity for the next year.
we talked a bit about a possible retreat. locations. costs. etcetera.
then, we got on with the fun stuff. folks exchanged their pin cushions and it was a good time for all. :).
for the november meeting, colleen challenged us to bring a 12.5" unfinished block that has a square in it. and green in it. so, well, do that. signups are still open (until sunday) for the pouch swap that will be exchanged at the december meeting. also, at the december meeting (and by meeting, i mean party!!!), we will have a dirty santa homemade ornament exchange (like last year), so be thinking about that.
a reminder that this years dues are due by the november meeting. $20. and your membership runs through sept. 30, 2013.
we voted for new officers!!!
angie was voted in for a second term as president.
sarah (me. no longer secretary!!!) is the new vice president.
lee will be taking over the secretarial duties (and boy does she have some big shoes to fill).
and tami will stay on for another term as treasurer.
kim johnson will be the charity coordinator for the year.
and at press time, i don't think the other coordinator jobs have been filled yet.
annndddd... that's that. thanks for letting me be your secretary. :)
