Keeping Kitty Fed

At our last weekend it was decided that we really need to keep a kitty to cover our expenses of postage, batting and backing, and our sashing and border fabrics. Marion had donated money before she left and we've now run out. So Leonie has donated a 'kitty' money box (above). Here is what we agreed to:

  1. When you join the Rainbow Connection Quilters we ask for a coin or note donation into the kitty.
  2. When you attend one of our quilting weekends you can put a gold coin in the kitty.
  3. When you join (or we run out) we also ask for a donation of 1 metre of fabric and a block design (wrapped so it can't be identified) for our Mystery Metre Quilts for charity. These are kept in our Lucky Dip basket (below) until needed. We still have 3 lucky dips which should keep us going until 2010.
  4. If you can't afford anything that is OK and we certainly don't want any foreign currencies as these cost money to exchange. Overseas and other distance members can just donate their fabric and block design and pay for return postage of their blocks etc.
Please leave a comment if you would like to make a contribution to these rules.
