October Meeting Minutes & Sunday Morning Quilts Trunk Show Recap

We had standing room only for our October meeting! Amanda Jean Nyberg from the blog, Crazy Mom Quilts, was our guest speaker and did a trunk show from her book,  Sunday Morning Quilts, that she co-wrote with Cheryl Arkison.  She obviously has a large following -- so many guests came to hear her speak that we ran out of chairs for the meeting.  Amanda Jean Nyberg trunk show We also had a number of new members sign up as well.  Thank you to all of our guests and new members, we hope you enjoyed our meeting and plan on visiting us again soon!

Amanda Jean gave a fun, informative presentation, graciously answered a variety of questions and signed copies of her book.  Thank you again Amanda Jean! 

Our Show and Tell portion of the meeting included both members and guests which was so much fun and we all learned lots of new things from many of our guests:
