Minutes For Meeting October, 2013

The meeting was called to order with 13 members and one guest present. Welcome Lori! We were glad to have you with us.
 
Lisa gave the Treasurer’s Report.
 
Old Business: No report from the Bead Bazaar committee.
 
Mary H went over the details for the January 10-12 bead retreat in Griswold IA. Payments are due at the November meeting, so be sure to bring a check. Fees are non refundable except for extreme circumstances or bad weather. Be sure to bring a sweater and wear your flannel pj’s in case its cold in the cabin. Each attendee will be asked to contribute to one meal for the weekend. Bring your own lamp, extension cord and projects to work on.
 
For the January meeting/party everyone is asked to bring a treat to share. We will have a gift exchange,  so those who want to participate can bring a wrapped $10 gift of bead supplies, not a finished project.
 
New business: Mary H. announced that she will be moving to Kansas City in December. We will have nominations for vice-president in November. Give some thought to throwing your hat in the ring!
 
Show and Tell was followed by a Kumihimo and pendant project taught by Joan. We started the pendant and will work on the Kumihimo at the November meeting. Thanks Joan for a great project!
 
We have monthly projects lined up for the next few months, but have openings starting in June. So, be thinking about something that you might want to teach or techniques that you want to learn more about. Bring your ideas and talents to the next meeting so that we can discuss ideas and get the schedule filled.
 
For the newer members, we do not meet in December.
