Watch for February Meeting Announcements – we plan to cut the Charity ‘stash’ even more! Thanks to all who participated and to Sylvia for organizing. If you have a Charity project, including round robins, please bring them to the next meeting. PS – BEST part of the day – the delicious Pot-Luck lunch!
Our Holiday party was held December 18. Sixteen members and one guest were welcomed into Becky Klein’s studio (which is fabulous and has cabinets galore!). Homemade soups, salads and breads were followed by a dessert buffet! Gift card prizes were awarded for attendance and the most “Sew and Tells.”
We will be hosting AQG President Elaine Putnam. Our program that evening includes a viewing of our PP President’s Challenge Quilts. “Time Warp” is the theme, we are to create a quilt using both a traditional block and a modern interpretation of that same block. Also include a brief history of the traditional block and how the modern version came to be.
