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.

Membership Dues It’s that time again! Membership renewal forms have been sent out and dues are $60 for the 2020 calendar year. You can pay online, send a check or pay at our January meeting 1/16.

January Member Meeting Reminder: This will be a special meeting with mini workshops on different quilt finishing techniques being taught by members. You won’t want to miss it. Plus, we will be getting our postcard swaps back!

**January Member Lead Workshop/ Saturday 1/25 Sign ups will be going out the beginning of January for these fun events. Check your email!

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!

Jennifer – Secretary

Party ON!!

Reminder – Guild meeting & holiday party this THURSDAY Dec 19

Where: LDS Church – 209 Mountain Ave, North Caldwell NJ, 07006

When: 7pm

Our fantastic Party Committee (Barbara & Terri) will be taking care of the food again this year.

If you are able to contribute please bring a dessert – with a tag to say what ingredients are included. We have a variety of dietary restrictions & allergies – so safety first! We also welcome drinks, including water.

Remember to wrap your swap gift so we can all be surprised.

We’ll have a bit of guild business to take care of but we’ll go quick so we can spend more time socializing, swapping & show & telling!

If you’d rather not bring items to show – snap some pictures of your makes you’ll be gifting and we can share them in the slide show in January since there will be no slide show this month.

Have a great week and see you soon!!
