Donation Quilt, January's Trunk Show & February Meeting Next Week

Sadly, as happens in every organization, one of our members passed away much too soon.  She had bequeathed her fabrics to the guild, so we spent much time sorting, separating, selling, and saving.  One of the first batches that was outsorted for guild use was a collection of purples & greens.  This was sewed up by one of our members as the sample blocks for our Block of the Month program.  She then assembled the blocks into a quilt which we've donated to the Caledonia Agricultural Society for their fundraising purposes.

The January Member Challenge was to make a name tag.  Good job ladies!

Our speaker in January was Bernadette Forbes, who treated us to a wonderful trunk show of her work.

Wednesday Feb. 12th, 7 pm
We will have teaching stations set up so you can learn some new techniques.

December Events & January info

The most exciting thing that happened was our visit from Mrs. Claus.

She was instructed to keep us in line during our pot luck supper.

And then she made sure we voted fairly, and only once, for our favorite challenge project.

Afterwards we started on our holiday craft activity.

What the heck???...

OK, getting a little closer.  It just needs a button and a hanging string.

If you'd like to see some that were properly made you'll have to go to Pinterest. 😁

JANUARY 8, 2020

Meeting starts at 7 pm.  Bring your coffee mug, your show 'n share, any library books that are due back, and your baggie of charm squares (if you're in the swap group).
The program will be a trunk show by Bernadette Forbes.
