December 2018 Guild meeting and Holiday Party

Here we are in 2019 and I’m just getting to catch up the remainder of last year!

We had 47 members visiting us for our final meeting and final party of the year. It was a lot of fun and a great success, in big part to Barbara and Terri. We are so thankful for all the hard work put in to make it such a fabulous time!

First things first, there’s always the order of business to get through. We talked about the craft show members so generously donated to, to help do a little fundraising.

We had our vote on increasing dues from $50 to $60- approved
As well as our 2019 budget-approved.

We briefly about the member led half day classes in January.

We collected some Quilts of Valor blocks and will always accept these. 12 1/2 x 12 1/2″ blocks in red, white and blue.

We sent a huge bunch of our scraps to the Social Justice Sewing academy.
Robert Kaufman is collecting quilts for people who were affected by the wildfires, so we sent some of our completed charity quilts to them
We would also like to ask anyone who is working on a New Wave charity quilt, to bring it to the January meeting

Our Quiltcon charity quilt top and back are done. It still needs a name, so thinking caps on!

We had a blind bag swap. So many great bags and happy faces!

And of course, our favorite part of the meeting is Show and Tell. Holiday gifts and more gorgeousness, as always!!
