We’ve got some exciting and important updates on guild happenings, so be sure to join us for our Annual Meeting, Saturday, Dec. 4, 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (note earlier start time) on Zoom. Check your email for meeting details and the Zoom link.

During the business portion of our meeting, we’ll elect two new officers (see more below), look back at 2021 and get a sneak peek of what’s in store for 2022. Then we’ll have the chance to chat with the amazing Daisy Aschehoug of Warm Folk (more below). It’s going to be a fun, jam-packed meeting, so we hope you can attend! (Please note that we are combining our November and December meetings. Our annual after-holiday party will be January 22.)

New officers to the Board: A giant thanks to Cassie Koerner, Secretary and Sally Bradley, Treasurer for their great work on our board! Are you interested in being part of the BMQG workings? Consider joining our active, fun Board of Directors to serve in one of these positions:

  • Secretary: Attends board meetings, prepares meeting minutes and helps maintain board records and general correspondence. The secretary has also been assisting with social media marketing efforts, so assistance with that is appreciated but not required. Training will be available. Estimated monthly time commitment: 3-4 hours.
  • Treasurer: Serves as financial officer of the organization. Finance experience is helpful but not required. Training will be available. Estimated monthly time commitment: 3-4 hours.
  • Please see the full list of responsibilities on the Position Descriptions of Board Members page on our website.

After our official annual business is over, we’ll be joined by Daisy Aschehoug of Warm Folk. Daisy is an award-winning quilter, pattern designer, and artist whose designs reflect a passion for curved piecing. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines, the book Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century, and she has co-authored the book Quilt Modern Curves & Bold Stripes. She’s also teaching and lecturing at QuiltCon in 2022. After living in too many places to list, Daisy now lives near Oslo, Norway, where she is perfecting the art of winter coziness. She’ll be joining us for a Coffee Klatsch discussion, where we’ll be able to ask her questions and she’ll share her thoughts on quilty topics such as where she gets her quilt design ideas, what was her most disappointing quilt, which quilting shortcuts she takes and which tasks she’s painfully particular about? Put the kettle on as we settle in for a fun chat. You can check her out on Instagram and her website.
