December 19 Holiday Party Recap

Welcome to the Holiday Party!

We had a little over 30 people join us for our festive night.

Such a wonderful spread of amazing food! Thanks Barb and Terri!

Guild Business We had a woman contact us offering up long arm quilting services. Paula Stoia, from Brownstone Quilters Guild, who resides in Rockaway. Please see Rachel for contact information.

Next, we got to see the Quiltcon Charity quiltop.

Isn’t that a stunner!

Then, it was time for the Holiday Swap! First up, Mug Rugs!

And then there were Totes!

What lovely totes they were!

Meanwhile, we kept our creative juices flowing by crafting gingerbread house centerpieces as we enjoyed the festivities.

And what would a guild meeting be without Show N Tell!

MJ with a baby quilt for friend’s first grand child!

Debby with a matching pillow of leftover squares.

Sue with a ‘Quilt of all Stripes’.

Annette with a quilt donation for charity.

Kathy with ‘Wee Braw Bags’.

Betsy with Beaded Curtain quilt.

And finally Sarah aka ‘Yo Rebel Woman’, with a beautiful assortment.

As we close the door on 2019 and enter into a new year of quilting possibilities, I wish you never ending bobbins and uninterrupted quilting time!

Happy New Year!
