Happy 2017, Quilters!
First important announcement for our next meeting - we will be in the training room at the ESB. This is different from our normal room. When you arrive, just turn to the left and the room will be right there. You can't miss us, because we will be setting up for our annual destash sale!!
Which brings us to the next topic... the Annual Destash Sale! Now is a great opportunity to do a bit of cleaning and organizing in your sewing space. Bring any items you wish to donate (fabric, rulers, books, notions, etc.) with you to January's meeting. All proceeds go to help the guild and any items left after the sale are donated to the Senior Center.
At this meeting we will also be voting on a name for our 2017 raffle quilt. The goal is to have tickets ready to sell around February/March, so please put on your thinking cap and be ready to share ideas for a name.
Finally, don't forget to pay your 2017 dues! Dues remain at $50 this year and you can pay at the meeting or via PayPal.
This meeting is going to be full of information about what's happening in 2017, including upcoming events, speakers, special sew-in's, and guild events. We will also be choosing shapes for the upcoming Shape Challenge.
Here's what you should bring to January's meeting:
- Destash items
- January's BOM & special Blue Heart block
- Birthday Raffle items if you are a January Baby
- $1's to purchase a chance at the Birthday Raffle
- Sew & Tell
- You name tag
It's going to be great, so don't miss it!
