WOW! Could you believe Melani Kane Brewer's evolution, from a traditional quilter to a 3D fiber artist? Her love for the environment is reflected in her art work. Her subjects look real. And, her murder of crows series is an impactful political editorial. Coming in November, the guild will host a day and a half workshop featuring Marina Landi. Her workshop, Face to Face, From Photos to Fabric will be a lesson in the use of color. Our November meeting actually falls on Veterans Day. Ocean Waves will once again honor our country’s heroes with a Quilt of Valor presentation. These are men and women who served in the military, in battle zones. We have invited these guests to speak about their experiences and join us for refreshments. If it is your turn to bring refreshments, please do so. Thank you to everyone who brought in the pink ombre' blocks. I am hoping to bring them back, completed, to the February meeting. If you made any ornaments for the Deering Christmas trees, please bring them to the meeting. The Family and Consumer Sciences Group will be decorating those trees next week. Another year is almost gone. It is time to close out 2017 and get prepared for 2018. We have started accepting next year's dues, the Installation Luncheon fee and the luncheon workshops fees. You are welcome to pay at the meeting, by mail or through PayPal. The Board of Officers slate will be announced at this meeting and the budget presented for the 2nd month, both matters will be voted on at the December meeting. Why did the police arrest the turkey? They suspected it of fowl play. Why do pilgrims pants keep falling down? Because their belt buckles are on their hats. Why can't you take a turkey to church? Because they use such fowl language. Ha ha ha! We look forward to the holidays. But, sometimes we get so stressed-out we forget to laugh. Relax and enjoy the season.
