Our January meeting was called to order and we introduced ourselves to each other since we had 3 new visitors.

- Discussed February's meeting - Free Motion Quilting
Bring 12 X 12 muslin squares (w/batting) or a larger lap project to work on.
- Discussed our 2013 Sew Red for Women BOM project. Need to assemble blocks and quilt. Jenny offered to assist.
- 2014 Dues are due - $40 - pay Linda Cunningham - a portion goes directly to the National Modern Quilt Guild.
