December & January Events

Here are the dates of our upcoming events:

Tuesday, December 18:  Holiday Party
I know we discussed a different date at the meeting, but due to a conflict the party had to be moved back to Tuesday 12/18.  I hope everyone can make it.  It is being held at Bianca's house and she will be sending out an evite soon.  Please bring a handmade ornament to share in our swap.  After all of the creativity shown in the potholder swap, I can't wait to see the ornaments.

Saturday, January 26:  Sew-In
Come join us from 10-2 at Carmel Presbyterian Church (Ligon Hall)

Thursday, January 31:  Next Meeting
Location site and more details to follow.

After the holiday and year-end rush is over, take a minute and make a block for our January BOM.  Each block you make gets you a chance to WIN THEM ALL.  January's block is:
