Linda lead our meeting.
  In attendance:  Linda Yew, Josie Addington, Jean Becker, Jan Ives, Carmella Patterson, Justine Ozaki, Rita Stockwell, Merrily Clark, Claire Cronkleton and Nancy Peterson.  Welcome to our visitor:  Jackie Willimon.

New Business
We had a discussion on workshops for the coming months.  Linda volunteered to do the May workshop on broomsick lace.  If you have a broomstick needle bring it or you can borrow one at the meeting.  Future workshops: Jean’s repurpose sweater capelet, Justine’s eyelash bucket bag and personalized name tags to wear at meetings.
Old Business
Linda thanked Justine for quickly finding a new location for our meetings at the Fiber Gallery.
Discussion on our guild’s benefits to join CGOA.  We decided the guild will join so we get the web listing of being affiliated with the national guild.  Claire will sign us up online.  Linda will join CGOA as an individual member – Jean, Justine and Josie are members.  Biggest benefit is you get Crochet! magazine as part of your membership.
Linda has ordered our business cards.
We have $110 in our treasury at this time.
Josie volunteered to draft the by-laws for our guild.  They will be available on our website to browse before the next meeting.  We can vote on acceptance next meeting.
