--Kim is the Charity Coordinator.
--Colleen is continuing as Swap Coordinator.
--Jennifer's baby girl, Madison, arrived!
--Kelly donated a quilt for us to raffle!! It's flea market fancy awesomeness.

Linda Kearsley, Senior Services

Their mission is "living with dignity" and they try to help seniors stay in their homes. Linda told us about some of their services. They're an appreciative bunch! She thinks we could make lap quilts, walker caddies and other items.

We all discussed our charity goals for next year. The online survey came back 50% seniors/50% children. We decided to do seniors for now and children later. We are also going to try to order labels for TMQG for the charitable donations.

Officers Meeting Ideas:
--Change the meeting location to a non-sewing shop. Move the location further into Winston to hopefully draw members from a larger area.
--Have Sit 'n Sews more often and at all the area shops.
--Have a yearlong block of the month challenge using Craftsy. Members will earn tickets for participating, as well as for bringing friends, finding speakers and more! Details to come at the January meeting.
--Propose amending the bylaws so the Vice President becomes President. This would take effect with next year's election.

Kim demonstrated an inset zipper.

Next meeting is December 18 at 6pm at Sewingly Yours. It's a holiday party!! Bring an ornament or Christmas decor item for our swap. We are also swapping pouches!
