Our first meeting of 2015 is this Saturday at the Arlington Central Library from noon to 5pm. There is another group in there in the morning so we can't get in until noon.
The plan for the meeting is:
12:00-12:30 Set up your space, meet and greet
12:30-2:00 Big Ideas for 2015 planning session--bring
hand stitching or knitting and be ready to discuss your ideas for the
next year in the guild. We will review suggestions that came from
member surveys. Volunteers for committees would be most appreciated. We
may be switching seats as needed to brainstorm with fellow committee
members. I'm asking for no machine sewing during this portion of the meeting
so everyone can hear and participate.
2:00-5:00 Open sew time.
If you are not available this Saturday, please feel free to
comment here or send me an email (email@example.com) with your ideas and/or a committee that you'd like to participate in.
So far we could use some help on the following committees:
1 person to work with Susan Fuller on Swap Committee
Liz and I (Melinda) will be on retreat committee but we could use more help (there were a few volunteers on Instagram but I want everyone to have a full choice of committees).
Depending on interest from members present at the meeting we will probably need a committee chair and members for each of the following committees:
shop hop/social committee
Your Board will take on education responsibilities for the guild, but please feel free to bring education ideas (or offer help with education tasks) at any time.
Speaking of swaps, the guild will be doing quarterly swaps this year. Our first one will probably start in January. If you have ideas for swap themes and can't come to the meeting this weekend, be sure to leave a comment or email so we can consider your input this Saturday.
Lastly, we need volunteers for Station Sign Ups. If you can bring items for a cutting station, ironing board, iron and/or snacks for the meeting, please leave a comment here. Don't forget extension cords!
Extra bonus if you read this far, here is a picture of our outdoor meeting in 2014. I hope we can get more smiling faces at an outdoor meeting this year.
