HUNTINGTON QUILT GUILD MINUTES FOR MAY 4, 2021

Mickey, President, opened the meeting at 7:30pm. 

She obtained a speaker, Rosa Park for our meeting, Aero Dynamics on Sewing to be shown through Zoom.  Rosa cancelled unexpectedly because her husband had a blood clot on and had a heart attack. We wish her husband a speedy recovery. 

Mickey was able to secure Elizabeth DeCroos who gave a presentation on South Korean culture, wrapping gifts with fabric.  She showed projects of making fabric to look like stained glass on your windows with the sun shining through.

All the above was done with Lucie B and Mickey getting the church to loan us their screen, for a fee.  A boom box from a neighbor and all went well for the meeting.  A hand clapping was given by the members to say thank you for their hard work putting the presentation together.

Elizabeth De Crew is from Buffalo, NY.  Did not sew growing up.  She learned through Library books.  In 2009 she had a job to go to South Korea.  She was in culture shock but learned POJAGI, wrapping cloth. She went to many classes to learn many different crafts while in South Korea.

BREAK at 8:20pm for water, chocolates and a fat quarter wrapped up for Mother’s Day.

RAFFLE BASKET – Carol W. had a lovely basket made up to raffle.  She acquired many lovely fabrics and books from Lynn N. who passed away May 25, 2020.  Tickets were sold 3 for $5.00.  The proceeds from the basket will be donated to the Guild.  There are two machines for sale.  One is a Brother PC8500 and another one Brother Innoves 5100.  Call Carol W. if interested.
