Announcements/New Business

Vet Scarves: Justine advised that there will not be a road trip to deliver the scarves. The scarves need to be delivered during business hours and therefore a weekend trip is not possible. The cut off for the turning in the scarves is October 23, 2009.

2010 Officers: It's time again to nominate and elect officers for the 2010 term. The following people were nominated: Darlene Pearsall, Secretary; Josie Addington, President; and Justine Ozaki as Treasurer. Justine took the nominations to a vote and the nominees were unanimously voted into office. The officers of Crochet Seattle! are: Josie Addington, President; Darlene Pearsall, Secretary; and Justine Ozaki, Treasurer.

The rest of the meeting was spent enjoying the treats, each other's company and the occasional round in Mad Woman Yarn.
