Meeting Minutes 9/9/17 at the Mattatuck Museum

We had a fantastic meeting on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at the Mattatuck Museum, 144 West Main Street, Waterbury, CT. We had approximately 27 members and one guest in attendance.
We opened the meeting with a “thank you” to Roz Spann for coordinating our lunch. Note to all: if you see we are meeting somewhere in your neck of the woods, please speak up and lend a hand! We also welcomed our newest member to the region, Meredith Brooks.
We had another intro/reminder for our upcoming regional show, Local Color 3: Inspired by Science. There are two options to enter (you can even choose both!): the main show (juried) and the trunk show (all work accepted and will be for sale at a price of your choosing - recommendation from Cathy Smith is around $100-$150 bc it’s an “easy” amount for people to spend). Drop off is on December 2nd at Sew Inspired (this will NOT be a full meeting, only artwork drop-off...and maybe some shopping). Additionally, *trunk show pieces* can be shipped to Mary Lachma…
