VICE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGESally Acomb, email@example.com
Please use this link to the Honorary Member Nomination Form We will be taking nominations in February and voting on this either in person or by absentee ballot at the March meeting. More information coming soon.
By-Laws:We are attaching the text of the Article III Membership section of our By-Laws along with the Procedure and Guidelines sections as approved at the last meeting. My intent was to have the simplest form possible. If there are any issues with what was approved, we can revisit them and amend as needed. Thank you for your support. I know that By-Laws are a drag for most people, but NY State requires that we have this
for our 501 (c)3 status. Work will continue by committee emails on other sections as some of us will be in (hopefully) sunnier and warmer climes soon. Sally A.

Information packets were handed out at the December meeting. We will attempt to deliver the rest at the next meeting and are starting to look for volunteers in January also. Looking forward to showing you the Phelps Community Center at the next guild meeting and talking a little more about the Show.
Plan to stay after lunch. I will be showing a method of sewing a sleeve on the back of a quilt. If you have a sleeve waiting to be sewn on - bring it to the meeting and sit around and sew!!

My name is Judi Dechau. I have been unable to come the last few months but hope to see many of you at the January meeting. I am making denim quilts to give to the homeless in our area. I am in need of denim!! It doesn’t matter the color (blue, green, brown Carhart, purple) or condition, (broken zippers, holes, frayed) no problem. I am going to cut them up anyway. Also flannel sheets for the backing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Judi 585-721-0801 email@example.com
