A non-profit guild located in Cedar Crest, New Mexico.
Our goal is to promote and perpetuate the art of quilting
and to benefit and educate all persons interested
in preserving, continuing, and advancing this art.
We encourage a high standard of design and technique
in all forms of quilting and promote the art by teaching
and sponsoring exhibits.
Guild meetings are held at 9:30 am
the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Mountainside United Methodist Church - 4 Penny Lane, Cedar Crest NM
Meeting was called to order at 10:10 a.m. by Claudia
The required number of board members were present for a
Treasurer’s report: will
be presented at general meeting on January 9, 2018.
Programs provided a statement that they were ready to begin the calendar
project. Instructions for January and
February blocks will be distributed.
Set-up and tear-down was discussed. Claudia will make up a sign-up sheet. Cindy said she had reminded those signed-up
prior to each meeting and had a good amount of success with the sign-up sheet
that way. It was suggested that recoil
extension cords would make such work much easier. This would need to come out of the Property
account and the budgeted amount did not allow for this. Another source of funding would be the
savings account and it will be discovered how to access these funds per the
The bank account signature changes need to be made with the
new year and new officers. A motion was
made by Cindy to write the required memo of minutes and submit to Nuesenda
Credit Union. The motion was seconded by
Claudia and there was a unanimous vote to carry the motion at 10:35 a.m. The memo will add Bernadette Houghton,
Claudia E. Sanders and retain Cindy Gregory as authorized representatives. It will remove Carol Anderson and Carol Bush
from the list.
Other new business-Cindy introduced the possibility of a new
service, rotary blade sharpening. She
had found a device that would allow the guild to provide this service. Funding for the sharpener will be determined
after the savings account access issue is learned. It will then be brought to the whole
membership, asking for interest and possible reviews of the product.
Sandra called the meeting to order and asked that there be
no side bars during the meeting.
Old Business- Nancy
Ford has the other pattern that we were supposed to do this year. She will pass it around and see if anyone has
an interest in the pattern. If 10 or
more ladies are interested, we can purchase the pattern for $ 12.
New Business- Cindy
Gregory said it appears that the Guild is leaning towards the calendar/table
runners. Cindy has a bunch of patterns
and suggested that we all bring in our patterns to compare and look at. The Board thanked Marilyn Gampel for
volunteering to run Programs next year.
Eileen Suderman volunteered to assist Marilyn.
Carol Anderson has questions about this year’s project. Who is going to take the lead in finishing up
our quilts???? Kathryn and Holly will be
teaching next month’s flying geese row.
After that, it is a matter of putting the entire project together. Susannah suggested that we all be available

available for members with the address of where we hold Gilld. She purchased one on Amazon for $24.95. The board agreed to reimburse her for the
Second item of
business- Room set-up and
take-down- Rosie Dorsey suggested that
each “Pod” of ladies be responsible for their own table set-up and
take-down. Susannah Faith said that
might not work because some ladies were not capable of doing it by
themselves. It was suggested that if no
one has signed up for set up or take down on any month, then each member might
have to do their own station.
Third item of
business- Carol Anderson has already
found a replacement for Treasurer next year.
She suggested that we start searching for people to take over our jobs
Fourth item of
business - Programs- As always, programs is always a
challenge. Thru group ideas, we will
start asking the ladies what they would like to see for next year. Cindy Gregory agreed to be scribe in July

items, and we can get an idea of how many are interested in those suggestions.
