Meeting Recap (December 9th, 2017)

Thanks to everyone that came out to Saturday's meeting, we enjoyed seeing your faces and hope that you had fun. 

  • Krista, our Treasurer, gave us the updated financial info.

  • Jessica, our Secretary, announced our membership numbers.

  • Marie, our VP, announced a handful of things happening around town that could help you with your holiday shopping.
  • Thanks to all of the volunteers that helped collected, organize and prepare the room for our annual fundraiser. If you want to get a peek at the event, our Instagram page was updated to include a quick video and some photos of the items that were up for grabs.

  • If you missed Show & Tell, you can see pics of many of the items that were shown, including the lovely quilt that was made for Kristy, our President. The 168 blocks were made by both past and present members put together over the past few months.  The quilt was then pieced by Jessica, quilted by Dottie and bound by Krista

That closes out 2017!  Thanks for coming along on this journey with us, we hope that you learned a new skill this year, met someone new and took some risks with your work.  

The current and future Board wishes you and yours a Happy Holidays! and Happy New Year!

:: If you wish to be a member of the STLMQG next year, this is your final opportunity to pay your dues. Remember $40 cash. check (made out to the STLMQG), or even charge (with a small additional fee) and our Officers will ensure you are on next year's roster. 

:: Our annual December Fundraiser is always a blast and there will be ample time to "shop"; 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 fabulous items you wish to donate, we will be collecting them at the beginning of the meeting.  Just remember, this is NOT an opportunity to get rid of items that belong on the Freebie Table.  Anything you bring should be something that people will be excited to take a chance at winning.
         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, what new fabrics you have purchased, books that inspire you, etc.
