A few reminders:
  • December 3 sew-in (scissor sharpening - spots are limited, please book a slot on the sign-up sheet, $4 per pair, no pinking shears. We will also have a rotary blade sharpener on hand)
  • Our final meeting of 2016 will be on Tuesday December 13th at 7pm 
  • Josée will be demonstrating the origami block she used in her showcase quilt, A Sprinkling of Stars.
  • For those participating in the Charm Square Swap, your blocks are due so please remember to bring them with you. 
  • We will have a themed Show and Tell, so with a nod to the classic 'Sound of Music', our theme will be My Favorite Things. Bring along a favorite quilting-related item to share; it can be a favorite quilt, a favorite quilting notion, a favorite modern quilting book or magazine, or even some of your favorite fabric.
  • As it is the holidays, everyone is invited to bring a treat to share with the group!
