December 2014 - Informal New Board Meeting

I’m sure you are all very excited about our first VMQG Board meeting of 2015!

Date: Wednesday, January 7
Time: 
6:30pm
Location: Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, 4360 East Main Street, Ventura (map)
RSVP: Send an email to Georganna – president [at] venturamodernquiltguild [dot] com or comment on this post

All VMQG Members are welcome to attend – Please RSVP to my email address, above, or leave a comment, below.

Hope to keep the meeting from getting too long. I’d like to have as many Committee Chairs as can make it for just this first meeting so we can get some logistics out of the way. I know the beauty of being on a committee is that you don’t have to go to board meetings, but if you can make this one, great.

Hope to see you all there.
Cheers, Georganna

Time: 6pm to 8pm

Please refer to your meeting reminder email for instructions on how to enter the building.


December 8th is our holiday party meeting. I’m keeping the ‘business’ part to a minimum so we can eat, drink, and chat. We will, of course, have time for raffles and showing off quilts.

Don’t forget to bring your Small Quilt Crayon Challenge project. Like working against a deadline and haven’t started yet? HERE are the guidelines of the challenge.

If you have any questions about the sewing-related, $20 max gift exchange please contact Scott or Stacey.

If you have any questions about the fat quarter swap please contact Georganna.

Snacks: A big “Thank You!” to everyone who signed up to bring snacks. If you want to bring snacks and didn’t get the chance to sign up please contact Lynne (check your meeting reminder email for her email address) and let her know what you are bringing.

Please RSVP by leaving a comment on this blog post.

Dues are $50 per year. Your first regular meeting is free. If you want to come back but aren’t ready to join, a nominal fee of $5 will be charged. Then, you have to join.
