Notes from the August meeting ...

The Hoosier Hills Rug Hooking Guild held its regular meeting Saturday, August 13 at the library in Washington, Indiana.  There were 16 members and one guest present.

A draft of the proposed bylaws was presented and after discussion a motion was made and seconded to accept the bylaws as adjusted.  This document will assist us in obtaining the proper paperwork so we can have our rug raffle each year at the fiber fair.

The 2012 raffle rug is currently being hooked by members and is handed off to a new person at each meeting.  It was suggested we begin thinking of ideas for the 2013 raffle rug right now because time flies!

Just a reminder ... our October meeting will not be held at the library but will be at a member's house so that we can have a private basket class.  Plans were finalized for this special meeting.

There was discussion about who we might get to come and teach a class to the guild.  Several teachers were mentioned and more suggestions are welcome; please contact the president if you have anyone in mind.  Everyone enjoyed our retreat at Ferdinand last year and something like that again will be welcomed.

Reminder: Dues for 2012 will be due January 1, 2012.  It was decided that members would be sent a reminder to that effect in both September and October.

A nominating committee of three members was named to present a slate of officers for the Guild for 2012.  They will meet and report back to the membership in November.
