Its out! its out.!
The article in quilters companion is out.
I haven't seen it yet as my copy has not arrived in my letterbox, but today I have already had three new membership enquiries so hold onto your hats its going to be a busy month.
This will boost our Australian membership base which at present represents about half of our entire membership. I plan to initially cap the membership at 100 but may raise that slightly when I see how I cope with it. As of writing this we have 68 active members and at our peak we had 72 and I coping OK with that. This realistically allows room for 32 more members, and I could be wrong but with the exposure in the magazine I think that we will get a lot more enquiries than that.
And ooohhh how I hate turning people away.
I have been thinking about how I would cope with this, and that is one of the reasons for splitting the groups into categories. I could stagger the swaps within each group to take the pressure off. As many ladies that have been with me for awhile would know, at one stage we did run a second group, loosely attached to the first but it didn't really work out so I am not keen on heading down that path again.
Anyhow the purpose of this is to let you all know my thoughts and I welcome any comments on how you think we can make this work.
