***Don't forget your modern quilty nametag, otherwise you won't be eligible for Door Prizes***

***It's Election time.  Those due-paying members in attendance this Saturday will be given a ballot for voting.  Election results will be provided at the end of the meeting.

***This is the month that we will be collecting ALL of the Ticket Raffle items for our event in December.  The event is not only a great fundraiser for our guild; but a way to try your hand at taking home some great items.  You don't have to donate to play either, as we will be selling tickets 3 for $1 at the December meeting.  If you are donating, your donation will be calculated based on the total "retail value" of the entire donation...not each individual item.

Check out the categories below to see how many tickets you will receive:

$10 or less = 5 Tickets
$11 - $30 you receive 10 Tickets
$31 - $50 you receive 15 Tickets
$51 and up = 20 tickets
What sort of items are we looking for? 
  • Quilt shop quality modern fabric (Charm Packs, FQs, Large bag of scraps)
  • Quilt Patterns/Books
  • Crafty supplies (Crochet Hooks, Knitting Needles, Perle Cotton, Clear Rulers, Yarn-Not Acrylic, etc)
  • Misc (Handmade Totebags/Handbags, Yankee Candles, Restaurant/Shop Gift Certificates, etc)
The above are just a few suggestions to get your wheels turning.  While all donated items do not need to be quilting/sewing related; they should be things that you are confident your fellow STLMQG member would be excited to win.  While items can be new or gently used, please keep the following in mind.

Please, Please, Please note that this IS NOT a way for you to clean out your closet, basement, garage of "trash".  While one man's trash may be another man's treasure...don't let that be your motto.  If it belongs on the Freebie Table, it doesn't belong in our Ticket Raffle. 

Finally, when it comes to fabric donations, please make sure that it is quilt-shop quality and of the basic (solids-Kona, Moda, FreeSpirit, etc) or Modern style.  While we know that our membership is comprised of quilters/sewists who like a variety of quilting styles (Traditional, Art, Contemporary, Modern, etc)...this is after all the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild :-)

The above is not meant to put a damper on the fun; but rather to make sure that our membership is presented with a ton of great items to choose from in December. 

***Also, don't forget that we love to see what modern-quilting related projects you've been working on, bring up to 3 items for Show & Tell and let's inspire one another ***
