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.”
The New Year begins with our January 15th meeting – we meet the third Thursday of each month 7:00 PM at Desert Foothills United Methodist Church, 2156 E. Liberty Lane in Awahtukee.
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.
Then we will have a UFO, PHD (projects half done) and PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) can fly off your shelves “contest”. Each member is to bring 3 UFO’s and others will vote on the order in which they may be completed. Finished projects will be featured at our May dessert social for additional Sew and Tell tickets toward the year end prize drawing.
January 17 we are holding a Charity Sew-In and pot luck lunch at Mountain View Lutheran Church (Southwest corner of Elliott and 48th).
In February we will be working on an Opportunity Quilt during our meeting.
