Meeting Recap (December 10th, 2016)

While we realize we say it all the time, we really do mean it when we Thank You for attending, participating and continuing to support our group.  December's meeting was fun-filled and a great way to cap off another great year.

  • Jessica, our Secretary, collected 2017 dues from those wishing to renew next year.

  • Krista, our guild's new Treasurer, stepped in and assisted us with the annual fundraiser.

  • Dottie reminded everyone about our guild's commitment to finish the QuiltCon Charity Quilt, which was started several months ago. If you are interested in helping to piece together the blocks that have been collected, or would like to assist with the quilting, please check your Inbox, as Jessica sent out information to members on how to sign up. 

  • Our annual fundraiser was an enormous undertaking and huge success as always.  Here are some photos that capture the atmosphere.

The Officers are getting together this coming weekend to put together the 2017 calendar, and with the expanded meeting space we will be able to host a lot more educational activities, demos and opportunities to collaborate with one another.  

Have a fun-filled New Year and we will see you in January!!

:: This month is your final opportunity to pay your 2017 dues, if you wish to continue with us next year.  It's very easy to do so...just bring $40 cash or check (made out to the STLMQG) and our Officers will ensure you are on next year's roster. If you will not be in attendance at either meeting; but would like to remain a member, please send us an email and we will provide you with further information.  Please note that your cash/check must be received no later than Saturday, December 17th so we can fulfill our responsibilities to The MQG.

:: Our annual December Fundraiser is always a blast and there will be ample time to participate; but don't forget a few things.  
         1. Bring a pen so you can write your name on your tickets --or--bring small return address labels to use instead.
         2. If you still have items you wish to donate, we will be collecting them at the beginning of the meeting.  Want to learn more about the items we are looking for, check out this link for a few years ago.  Just remember, this is not an opportunity to get rid of  super old items that belong on the Free Table.
         3. If you wish to purchase additional tickets, you can do so at the meeting.

:: Don't forget your Show & Tell items, we want to see what interesting and creative things you have been working on, new fabrics you have purchased, books that inspire you, etc.

See you Saturday!!
