President's Message March-April

I know the calendar says it is winter, but the temperature outside tells a different story.  I hope all our lace ladies and gents-if there are any among us-are having fun at their pillows and will be bringing show and tell for all to see.  Are you ready for Elena’s Cantu’  class? We will have other announcements on up-coming classes so keep tuned in.

Members Present: Opal, Marilyn, Linda, Pat, Rowena, Dorothy , Karen , Arden  and Debbie.
The meeting was called to order at 12:30 PM by our President.
Secretary Report:  Debbie asked if there were changes necessary to the October 2011 minutes provided through email and at the meeting. Dorothy motioned to accept the minutes and Pat  seconded. The motion was passed.

Treasurer Report: Linda submitted the franchise information and hasn't heard of other problems. Will file in April for 2012. Financial reports were submitted to the group for review. Dorothy motioned the Treasurer Report be accepted; Debbie seconded the motion and it was passed.

VP/Chairman Report:  Louise Colgan has several 2013 Spring dates available. Marilyn will ask if Louise can have something available in Fall of 2012 or 2013. May 18-19 2013 is available currently. Also, Marilyn will ask if a 3 day class is an option.
Cathy might teach a Honiton class Summer 2012 in a big and bold pattern rather than normal small Honiton.
Opal might teach another knitted lace class for September 2013 during Tuesday lace-ins.
Librarian Report: Marilyn has completed a new list for the directory and submitted it to Linda. Also, the library has several VHS tapes for learning lacemaking and would like to get them converted to DVDs. Debbie volunteered her husband to try converting them.
Demonstrations: The demo at El Centro fashion class was a great success. In fact, the instructors suggested that someone approach the school with a formal class as a paid instructor.
 Dorothy is researching some teaching materials. DLS is not allowed to do a paid class format; therefore, a member must do it on her own.
There are possible demos for DLS in Forney or the Dallas Quilt Show (mid-March). New forthcoming
Membership: There are currently 27 members. Anyone that hasn't paid will not be included in the directory. Rita will supply a piece of lace for the directory cover since she's moving back to Belgium.
Hospitality: Karen missed January 2012 birthday cards since she was out of town.
Old Business: DLS will return to email/paper newsletters instead of blog per member preference.
New Business: Lacy Susan website is available though there is a new owner.
Opal encourages members to lace some stars for the IOLI conference (Refer to IOLI website). The stars can be submitted to IOLI without participating in the contest.
The Meeting was adjourned at 1:15 PM by Opal.

Respectfully submitted,
