Hi Fellow Quilters,
I would like to bring you up to date on the fabrics and etc. that we received from Marlene Adams. I have now finished going through the fabrics. I called Gerry and she is going to pick up the rest of the fabric I separated for community quilts. I have five boxes of freebies for the next meeting. I have to say there are some very good items for you to choose from. I have given lots of fat quarters to Mary Ann and more to come. I have two very large piles to iron and get them ready for her. That leaves only the books to go through and then I am done. Some will go to Mary Ann and some to the library. I feel good that all our members will benefit from this wonderful donation we have received.
Just a reminder for December… If you want to participate and have more fun at our holiday party, remember to bring your small quilt (18x22 inches) and also your holiday gift (about ten dollars) for the exchange game. I hope everyone is looking forward to this party as much as I am.
Then comes January and the Installation Luncheon. This is being held the Third Saturday of the month. We still have to have a business meeting and that will be a short meeting on the second Saturday of the month. It will be a combined board and business meeting. Then we start all over again for 2014.
