Hi Everyone! I'm sorry I forgot to post a reminder that there was no meeting in November. I sure do hope no one showed up! Sorry about that!
I do want to remind everyone about the meeting in December....all of the information is below. We hope you will join us for an end of the year celebration!
Our next meeting will be the holiday party on December 15th, from 6-8 at Saint Gabriel's church, and it will be full of swapping, show and tell, and eating! All the best things in my book!
Please bring with you:
Show and Tell – what have you been working on? We want to see it all!
A potluck dish – A dish to share. The guild will provide cups, plates, napkins, etc. Kelleigh has already
claimed drinks so she doesn’t have to cook!
Swap for Someone You Love – If you signed up for this swap, please be sure to come to the meeting or
send your item through someone else. We all can’t wait to see what you came up with. (At this point, I
can’t wait to see what I come up with…)
Drawstring Bag Swap – If you’d like, join us in a Christmas lined drawstring bag swap! We will use Jeni
Baker’s free tutorial at http://www.incolororder.com/2011/10/lined-drawstring-bag-tutorial.html. If
you’ve bought her pattern (which is great), it does include other sizes, so please stick with this 10” x 7”
size. Make them Christmas/Holiday themed and fill them with a few little goodies. For each pouch you
bring in, you will get to choose one to bring home. No peaking at the goodies inside before choosing,
though! Those are a fun bonus.
Placemats – to donate to Friendship Trays. See the blog post from late August. These instructions are
only a suggestion – any way you’d like to make then is fine. We’d love to have each member donate at
least two. This is a great way to use up those 12 inch orphan blocks you have at home.
Secret Sewing Sister Swap – if you did not bring your final bag to the last meeting, please bring it in
