MINUTES READ: Minutes of November 1, 2014 were approved as read
1. This year’s block exchange was discussed. Since Julie will be our Block Exchange coordinator for 2015 it was discussed if members wanted to continue with the 2014 block. Those that are still interested were to let Julie know. Laurie handed out the last blocks for 2014.
2. Patti discussed our activity for January. We will be having a UFO party. Ralene will make a new UFO card for members to use listing their UFOs they plan to complete in 2015. UFO projects need to have already been started (not a new project) and brought to Guild as a complete project that is quilted and bound. At the January party the remaining money in the UFO kitty will be awarded to someone.
3. Our January meeting will be held at Laurie’s home. We had a discussion on meeting options for our Guild since we are not able to meet at the Fire Station/Community Center.
4. Julie announced our new Area Representative. Peggy Schulz is our Rep.

6. Julie advised us that in one of the Christmas ornament packages the instructions had been left out. She has a copy for those that need them.
