The November meeting is going to be epic! We are having elections and a 5th Anniversary celebration.
The candidates for 2017 Executive Council will introduced, followed by the election. Please note, we are still looking for a VP of Education.
Happy Holidays "Make one - Take one" Swap
We will be swapping our handmade quilted items during the meeting. Please drop off your wrapped up item before the meeting and get a swap ticket. Everyone wants to see what fun and cute things were made for the swap, so there will be a special show and tell to open up and show off the goods.
Our guild will be raising money by making mini quilts for the BQE mini auction. There will be a sew day on Saturday Dec 10 2016 to work on your minis. Charlotte will demo finishing techniques - blocking, binding, hanging, labels.
Other things to look forward to:
- The Raffle basket is back!
- The last Block of the month lottery for 2016.
- BQE news, upcoming quilt shows and quilting events.
- Community Service projects update, including the Quiltcon Charity Quilt.
