Thimbleweed Quilters is a program of the City of Rio Rancho Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. Thimbleweed Quilters meet the first and third Thursday of each month from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm at Sabana Grande Recreation Center in Rio Rancho.
Diane Bourg kicked off the Block of the Month with four four patches and an outer border. We had a fashion show of Gail Garber's garment samples.
The silent auction, which will raise money for the 4-H Fashion Revue, ends at our next meeting. Quilts from the Rio Rancho Inn show were returned. Tickets for the crazy quilt went up for sale. Ticket sales will continue until after the spring show. Sue also has tickets for the Sunbonnet Sue quilt available.
Our budget planning meeting for 2012 was held on Jan 5, 2012, after the regular meeting and a delicious Soup Buffet. There were 14 members, including myself, in attendance. We quickly reviewed the procedure of the meeting and how to submit receipts for reimbursement. We reviewed the major categories of expenses and assigned them monies. Additional requests were added. After a very brief discussion, a little quick math, I asked for approval of the budget. It was approvedunanimously and the meeting was adjourned. If any of you would like details, please don't hesitate to call me. An accounting of how ourmoney is spent is available for all to review. Thank you for your confidence in me.
