Membership dues were collected – those not present or who haven’t paid yet
need to get money to Lisa as soon as they can.
Mary Goddard’s class will be held March 2nd from 8:30 to approx.. 4:30 at the> church – Gail confirmed we ARE able to use the church. Mary charges $150

The Bead Bazaar is Saturday April 13th. Joan will bring signup sheet for
volunteer time to the Feb. meeting.
Mary Hunter brought up the idea of doing a membership book and passed around
samples from Quilt groups she had belonged to. Joni made a motion, Lisa
seconded it. Mary and Chris will work on the book.
Gail May will contact Judy Citta to see if she has the original bylaws which will be included in
this book, along with information about the yearly Edna Perkins project we
do. We also decided to include the list of books in our library – TBD
whether we will list all the magazines in the library.
Joan had a copy of Geometric Beadwork by Jean Power at the meeting. Many members looked at the book and we decided we would add it to our library. Lisa will take
care of ordering the book.
Mary also brought up the idea of having people “assigned” as greeters/setup
(if necessary) and others as “cleanup”. We need to make sure when
visitors/new members come, they are greeted and given all the information
about the club and have a “friend” to sit with.
We also need to make sure the room table and chairs are left the same way as we arrive. The group agreed this was a good idea. We will have a signup sheet at February meeting. If you sign up and can’t make a meeting, it will be your job to find someone to take your place.
The next UFO meeting will be February 14th from 6:30 – 9:00 at the church.
We discussed the Edna Perkins project. You can make things on your own at
home. Joni will bring the beads that she has to the Feb. meeting. All
items need to given to Joni NO LATER than the April meeting. If anyone has
any extra jewelry bags and/or boxes, we need those also so the gifts have a
container to be put in.
The next meeting is Tuesday Feb. 26th. Barb Dewell will be teaching a
necklace for our project. We need to get her supply list out to the group asap –
Gail thought the main supply was size 8 Hex beads but when we get the
supply list from Barb we will know for sure.
Daytime UFO meetings in February are: the 7th and 21st. They will be at
Chris Johnson’s house.
Everyone who taught a class in 2012 had their name put into a hat (1 time
for each class they taught). Silki’s name was drawn so she is the winner
of the $25 gift certificate to Beads Etc.
With the people that were at the meeting, we were able to fill up the entire
year for teachers of projects.
We had show and tell which lasted probably 30 min. or more. Most members
had LOTS of beautiful projects to show.
Meeting was adjourned and the group “feasted” on the wonderful snacks that
