The October minutes were approved and seconded by Judy P. and Ruth W.
We had a huge turnout of visitors for this meeting. I was told that 31 guests signed in, but we had quite a few more that didn't sign in. I'm thankful that many people were there to hear the history of the underground quilts.
The guild took a vote for the color of next year's shirts. The color Purple won for next year.

We have great news. In 2017 we are going to be able to use the same room that we use for our meetings for workshops every other month. We have decided to meet on the even numbered months. The workshops will probably start at 1:00 p.m. We will have further information coming up. This is a wonderful way to spend some time with other quilters and work on charity quilts or donation quilts. There are possibilities of some learning workshops.
Special Olympic scarves will be picked up in December.
Georgia will deliver that baby hats to Parkland.
Quilts for the homeless and hospice will be picked up in December also.
