  • July Meeting - In July we will be back in the RADC space next to Crimson Tate however because we had planned to have sewing we might have a different time or sign-ups for the meeting stay tuned for details. 
  • Budget - The 2014 budget was discussed and it was noted that we have a little money that we will be determining how to spend in the next few months, and we will likely need to spend money on backing for the charity quilt as well.  We so need to however preserve a portion of our funds for the 2015 dues to the MQG, which will be paid at the end of the year.
