Morgan presided over the meeting at which 7 members were present: Morgan Hicks, Jean Beck, Justine Ozaki, Clare Cronkleton, Sandra Torkelson, R. A. Stockwell and Maureen Vinson.

Morgan reminded everyone to buy their tickets to the Mariner's Stitch n Pitch. Thursday, July 28th at Safeco Field.

Justine volunteered to check into requirements for 501(c)3 status and was working on distributing our business cards at yarn/fabric stores in the area.

After some discussion of our organizing options, motions were made and seconded and it was decided that we would establish the guild as CROCHET GUILD SEATTLE.

The following officers were elected for 6 month terms:
Morgan Hicks, President
Maureen Vinson, Secretary
Clare Cronkleton, Treasurer

Annual dues was levied at $10.00 and all present paid their dues.

Morgan noted that good examples of by-laws could be found at the New York City Guild's web-site www.nyccrochetguild.org.

These minutes were corrected, motioned, seconded and approved by the membership present.
