3. Other Business:

  • July block lottery rules and information – See this post for all the details.
  • Reminder – If you took a Member Feature questionnaire, please complete and return it next month.
  • Reminder – Clean up your area and check for pins after sew-in.
  • If you are on Instagram, you can tag your guild photos with #crystallakemqg.
  • We discussed if there is interest in an offsite workshop to learn how to take better photos with a smart phone. Many women were interested, so the Board will continue looking into this.
4. Mystery Medallion Show and Tell and judging: May border elements were drawn and announced: technique is either a cross/plus sign (not an X) or hand applique and color is peach or sunshine yellow. For this month, you may choose to use one or both techniques and one or both colors. See this blog post for all the details. Reminder – June 12 is the deadline for final border show and tell or photo. No late entries, no prize eligibility for not following final rules.  Photos of participants in this challenge are posted here.
