January Meeting

I am so excited to kick off a new year with the guild! We've come a long way since our first meeting nearly a year ago. This month we are going to talk about the future of our guild, and map out a plan to complete some important first year goals: establishing our by-laws and applying for 501(c)(3) non-profit status. The officers will take on the major requirements for completing these tasks, but the input of our members is extremely important. The content of our by-laws will affect how the guild functions for years to come, and we need your help to ensure that these guidelines lay a strong foundation. I will be passing out copies of the current draft of our by-laws. If you cannot make the meeting but would like a copy, please email me: president [at] dallasmodernquiltguild [dot] org.

January is also a time for new beginnings so we will be sharing our favorite tips for getting your projects and scraps organized. We will also be choosing the winner of the December WIP challenge. Bring your list of completed projects (or the projects themselves) and you may be crowned the WIP queen!

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight,
