July Meeting Reminder

Don't forget to join us this Saturday, July 20 at 10 a.m! If you've never been to our meetings, we meet at the First Presbyterian Church located at 101 Legends Club Lane in Franklin. You can find a map to the location on our website (click on the tab above).

Our agenda includes: 

Business 
We have some decisions to make.  The original Modern Quilt Guild (MQG) is going international. Here's how it would affect us to join them:

  • We would be able to keep our current guild name, otherwise we'd have to remove the 'modern' from our name.
  • We would qualify for 501 (c) (3) status through them.
  • They would provide us with a website and we would be linked to all the modern guilds via their website and social media.
  • We would have to pay annual dues to them, of approximately $15/member, which would increase your total dues to approximately $40/year.
  • We have already adopted official Bylaws and Standing Rules, and have the required EIN. Our bylaws  would need some minor revisions to meet the MQG criteria.
At our July 20 meeting we will discuss further and vote on it.  IMPORTANT!  Please review this document before our July 20th meeting.

Stefanie Williams will be presenting the 7th block in our 2013 BOM program.
