Library Update – The quilt display is on hold for the time being. The library contact person is no longer available and the new person is not keen on us attaching permanent quilt hanging devices. There is a possibility of using the easels to hang smaller quilts like wall hangings.
We will be supplying and decorating a tree for the library. Several quilted ornaments have been made and we still need more. Our tree will be on the 3rd floor
Guild Swap- This is a new thing for next year where we will swap a small quilted item or craft. We will possibly start this in February or March. We will fill out a form in January so bring your ideas.
Charity Quilt Block Update – Please bring more Anita’s Arrowhead blocks (quilts will be assembled in the spring). Our new charity blocks are a modern rainbow block. Please see the website and fb for the uploaded PDF instructions.
Demo – Jen showed the Magic 9 Patch: The Next Generation. This can be found at LynBrown.com.
Next year we will all be able to participate with sharing a demo! A sign up sheet will be available at the next meeting. Be thinking about which month you want to sign up for.
