Our Christmas party this year will be a luncheon, and we will meet one time on December 19 at 12:00 noon (no evening meeting this month).  We will have a short business meeting before enjoying a Pot Luck meal.  Show and share will be after we eat.

Our January meeting will be the annual Stash Buster sale.  If you have too much sewing/quilting "stuff" you will want to reserve a table.  If you don't have enough, you can come buy what you may need. 

Happy Quilting!!

Our Quilt Show is now over, but the next one will be in two years.  Time really flies, so it's never too early to get started - I know I will be cutting out new quilts soon.

This years President's Challenge theme is "Music Makes My Heart Sing."   The quilt can be any size as long as it has been made between June 2019 and May 2020, and includes something musical or hearts - or both!  I've already heard from several people that they have an idea on what to make, or have already started.  I can't wait to see what wonderful ideas everyone has.
