November is almost here, closely followed (coming up too fast!) by Christmas.
The first retreat is over and, by all reports, everybody enjoyed it immensely. I hope the second one goes just as well. It's November 11 to 13 and doors will be open for you at 1 pm (not noon ... 1 pm) to start your weekend. Registration for the retreat is full now.
Other dates to remember are Tuesday November 8 for our business meeting at 7 pm sharp, and Tuesday November 22 for our in-guild at 9 am sharp. Around those dates, every Tuesday the FOFA building is open as usual - bring your projects and lunch and enjoy a day out.
Please bring a pen and paper to all future business meetings - there seems to be a problem with people forgetting when things are happening, etc.
November's business meeting will focus on the future of the quilt show, raffle quilts, fundraising and the budget; we can not delay these any longer for people to think about. Decisions will be made by vote at that meeting so if you don't attend please don't complain later! We'll also be making a decision about what to do fo our Christmas celebration. There are five Tuesdays in November so we could have an "extra" in-guild sort of celebration on the fifth Tuesday, the 29th. Or we could have it instead of the regular business meeting on December 13 (there won't be a December in-guild as that would be too close to Christmas Day). Or...? I've taken on the task of selecting a project for the Christmas party; more details later on that. Further agenda items for this business meeting are not being accepted unless they're immediately urgent.
November's in-guild is a bit of a departure for us. Gail will be showing us how to make greeting cards with paper and fabric - a supplies list (if necessary) will be handed out at the November business meeting. Should be fun!
So put your thinking caps on for the November business meeting if you haven't already ... it's your Guild and therefore your future activities.
