Recap of May 19, 2020 Meeting

Our second Zoom meeting was well attended.  We welcomed a new guild member, Mary Lou.

Ellen D, our Treasurer, provided an update on our financial status.

Patty advised that we are not going to be able to meet in the First Baptist Church space until this fall at the earliest.  We are considering the possibilities of an outdoor meeting.

We had 222 tickets purchased by 19 people for our Raffle of Alison Glass's Stitched half-yard assortment.  Patty won the raffle.

Trish talked about 2020 trends in quilting based on what was showing at the MQG convention and otherwise.  She then led a game involving quick research into the latest quilting news and activities.
Below are the references for the items she introduced.
