Minutes For February, 2014 Meeting

 Last Years Edna Perkins Invitation to Veterans


The meeting was called to order with 10 members present. Lisa gave the Treasurer’s report and noted that she has paid the lodging deposit for the fall retreat.
 
Old Business: Bead Bazaar committee report. Lisa brought up a discussion of alternative ideas for the bazaar. Since Char has taken a new job that requires her to travel most of the time, we will need to figure out ways to do marketing for the bazaar. Lisa offered to contact Char to get some ideas of how to proceed. Joan clarified some things regarding working with the Lincoln group. Lisa, Diane and Joan will be on the steering committee to meet with April of the Lincoln group to get things started. 
 
Edna Perkins Project. Chris reminded  the members that they are to bring their completed items no later than the April meeting. 
 
2014 dues are due now. $20 per year. Give or send your check to Lisa if you haven’t paid yet.
 
Fall Bead Retreat: Sept. 19, 20 & 21. The cost is $34/night for two nights and $39 for one night. 
 
New Business: Lisa will teach the March project. We will be using memory wire, either ring size or bracelet size. This is a good project to use up your miscellaneous beads or left overs. So, check your stash and be ready to have some fun with a quick and easy project.
 
Show & Tell was followed by a beaded ring project taught by Joni. Thanks Joni!
