Holiday Get-Together

At our December meeting we had a mini-party with delicious food and wonderful stories that ran the gamut from quilts to pets to centipedes!  I haven't laughed so hard in ages!!

We also had our potholder swap made from fat quarters we exchanged in October:

And here's this month's Showcase:

Carolyn's nephew's quilt best viewed with 3D glasses! 

Shannon's modern Log Cabin.

Two Christmas quilts by Bonnie.

Beautiful hand appliqued blocks by Michelle.

And blocks for our QuiltCon Quilt by Carolyn and Rose.

That's the perfect segue for a reminder that we will be working on the QuiltCon quilt on January 5, 2013, 1-4 pm, at our monthly sew-in at Fabric Inspirations.  This quilt is our quild's first charity quilt.  It will be shown next year at QuiltCon, the Modern Quilt Guild Conference, and then donated to the Austin's Children Center.

I wish you all fun filled holidays and health, wealth and happiness in the New Year!

December's Meeting + November's Recap

Exciting news!  We now have a new partner - Linda, owner of Fabric Inspirations! We will be having a monthly Sew-In, the first Saturday of each month, at her fabulous shop!  Linda is having an Holiday Open House on Sunday, Dec 16th, noon - 4 pm.  There will be refreshments, demos and holiday specials.  I know I'll be there.

Our monthly meeting this Weds, Dec 12th, is a pot-luck event.  Please bring one of your favorite dishes - appetizer, entree or dessert.  I'm supplying dishes, cups, utensils, bottled water and ice.  Oh, bring a beverage for yourself if water isn't your thing!

Don't forget your potholders to exchange and one of your projects to Showcase (aka Show and Tell).

And November's Showcase:

We had a very successful fabric spree and raised $450 for the Jersey Shore Arts Center!  Many, many thanks from Herb and Brendan, President and Manager, respectively, of the Arts Center.  Your donations allow us to hold our meetings rent free!

I'll see you Weds!
