***There will NOT be Door Prizes this month as there is so much going on; but we'd still appreciate it if you'd wear your nametag anyway.

***We'll begin collecting 2013 dues this month and in January.  Yearly dues are $30, checks payable to the STLMQG are accepted as is cash of course. 

***The Photography 101 presentation is on hold until 2013, we Thank You for your patience.

***It's Ticket Raffle time, did you see the sneak peek at some of the items up for grabs?  Do you need tickets to participate?  We'll be selling them 3 for $1, and all of the $$ goes right back to the STLMQG...this is a fundraiser after all.  Don't forget that you'll need to write you name on the back of every ticket your receive/buy...so bring a sharpie, pen, etc...or as some people did last year, small return address stickers.

***We encourage our members to participate in this month's Extended Show & Tell, where we encourage you to bring a maximum of 5 items.  As always remember this is a Modern Quilt Guild.  Kacey Cowdrey of Thimble & Thread Quilt Guild will be in attendance looking for items to put in their big bi-annual Quilt Show, Spring of 2013.  As our membership has expanded, this is a great time to bring items that you may have shown earlier in the year too.

***Finally, we'll have a Comment Box ready and waiting for you to offer suggestions on 2013 activities, things you love, things you think could work differently, etc, etc. 
Happy Holidays!!!
From your STLMQG Officers
