Changes to the Board

Hello, South Florida Modern Quilt Guild Members! We have news for you! First, we have restructured the board as follows:

  • Ivy Bagnall, President
  • ___, Treasurer
  • Kate Yates, Secretary
  • Allison Schnackenberg, VP of Administration
  • Charlotte Noll and Debby Schindall, VPs of Programming
  • Patti Auten, VP of Projects

Nicole Kaplan is a founding board member, which is an honorary position.

Why have we restructured the board? We’re so glad you asked! To make a more streamlined compact board—in part because we are a compact guild. We are a work in progress, like many of our sewing projects. Our structure can change as our size grows. It also opens up more opportunities for members to participate via committees—either by heading them or simply working on them. And committee leads report to board members. 

You may notice that, as noted above, we are looking for a TREASURER! If you have any bookkeeping experience at all and can donate some time—not a lot—to the position, we would love to have you! Please email us at Thanks!

Also, and this is even BIGGER news, we’re going to hold elections! Since we merely volunteered ourselves into these positions, we are going to hold formal elections in September. Who knows? Maybe one of YOU would like to throw your hat in the ring? 

If not, have no fear: there will be several committees for you to choose from (to lead or participate in) so everyone gets a chance to contribute. They are as follows:

  1. Challenges and Swaps
  2. Block of the Month
  3. Quilt-a-Long
  4. Special Events
  5. Community Service
  6. Education
  7. Historian
  8. Meetings
  9. Membership
  10. Teaching

More information on how and when elections will be held, and how to sign up for committees, is right around the bend.

Lots of exciting stuff is happening in the next few months! Stay tuned! :)

~ Ivy Bagnall - President
