NEXT MEETING – December 3, 2014

Dec 3 – Holiday Social

Happy Holidays!

We typically don’t meet in December, but in 2014, we are holding a special Holiday Social Event on Wednesday, Dec 3 from 7:00-9:00PM at a different place, the Mifflin Presbyterian Church in Gahanna, where we our workshops are usually held.

We will also have a holiday gift bag challenge.  You are challenged to make a bag that can be used to give a gift.   At the end of the evening, bags will be randomly exchanged so that everyone who participates in the challenge will receive a bag to take home.  While it is a gift bag exchange, the bags do NOT need to include a gift! Contact Betsy Zimmerman with any questions.


November’s meeting had very low attendance and according to our bylaws we must elect our next years’ officers at the November meeting – president, vice-president, treasurer, and secretary.  We were short by about 20 votes to have a quorum.  We need 68 affirmative show of hands to elect the new board. According to our by-laws…

Article VII – Nominations and Election
Section B

A slate of officers and Committee Chairs shall be presented at the October Meeting by the Vice-President.  Nominations may be made from the floor in October and November.  Elections by ballot shall be held in November.  Any member may call for a roster of paid membership to be read for a vote to be granted.  A Quorum shall be met, which consists of 50% of the membership.

The 2015 CTQG Board Ballot is as follows…
President – Catie Gynn
Vice President – Janice Pryor
Treasurer – Bert Ward
Secretary – Laura McLaughlin

If you are a member, please check your email for a ballot, and respond by November 28th, 2014 and vote FOR or AGAINST the above ballot.


In the past, our guild has helped the students of Jefferson Elementary School with their charity work.  We make patchwork covers for pillows and the students stuff them and give to the children at Nationwide Children’s Hospital on Valentine’s Day.  Our Pillow Sew-In Day is  January 10, 2015 at the Mifflin Presbyterian Church, 123 Granville St.  Gahanna, OH  43230.  Lunch is on your own – you can pack your lunch or go to a nearby restaurant (Wendy’s, Subway, pizza and other places are within walking distance).

We are also taking donations of scraps that could be used for the pillows – 4” squares for fronts and/or 16” squares for the back.  We also need several irons, ironing boards, big cutting mats, rulers and rotary cutters for all to use. Set-up of equipment is at 9AM if you would like to help. Please email Bev Fuchs if you can come and/or bring any of the equipment needed.

Here are the directions to the pillow we make for Jefferson Elementary (PDF).
