Meeting Recap (December 13th, 2014)

The Officers would like to wish all of our members a Happy New Year!  Yet before we look towards 2015, let's recap our December meeting.

  • We had another successful annual fundraiser, Rene knows the exact amount; but I believe it was just under $1000.  This will go a long way towards the events and activities we have planned this coming year, so Thank You to everyone who donated and contributed.

  • Our WOW (War on WIP) came to a close with lots of members staying up late to finish those last minute WIP to show them at our meeting.  We are happy to see so many projects being finished this past year.  Krista Robbins was the grand prize winner...and I believe if you follow her on Instagram you saw some of the goodies she purchased with the JanieLou GiftCard.  

  • Are you itching to get your work out there in some shows, or looking for a challenge...then do we have news for you.

  • Don't forget about the Pincushion Swap that the Members Swap/Challenge committee created. Your amazingly modern pincushion is due at the February meeting.

  • Want to know the meeting dates for 2015, be sure to check out the Meeting Info tab at the top of our blog.
Thanks for a great 2014.  
We will see you soon on January 10th.

-------------------------- FYI ------------------------------

:: This month is our annual Ticket Fundraiser, and we have a lot of wonderful items for you to consider including fabric bundles, books, scrap bags, notions, etc.  It is always a good time, and the money raised will go a long way in helping to pay for many of the things we have planned for 2015.
***Updated:: To help speed up the fundraiser process, we ask that those buying tickets or those who donated please be sure to bring small stickers with your first and last name on them, or use return address labels, or be prepared to write your first and last name on each ticket.***

:: Our guild WOW (War on WIP) is finally coming to an end, and we've seen a lot of progress being made this year.  All those who have shown your finishes throughout the year, your numbers have been tallied.  Yet, it's not too late to finish that last little bit of quilting, or add that binding before Saturday's meeting to get another finish off of your WOW index card.  Remember, there are several prizes up for grabs; but the largest of which is the $100 GiftCard to Janie Lou; that was graciously donated by one of our members.

 :: Have you paid your 2015 dues yet?  This is your last month to do so, as we need to provide our final numbers to The MQG on January 1st.  Remember it's $40 for the year, and we accept cash or check. If you know for a fact that you will not be attending the meeting; but are looking to renew, please let us know asap so alternate arrangements can be made.  We would hate to remove you from the Roster, only to add you back at a later date.

:: Looking to be more involved?  There is still time to join one of our committees. Our guild would not be the same without all of our amazing volunteers who make up the Member's Swap/Challenge Committee, Charity Committee, and Events Committee.

:: Remember, it is not too late to participate in our Pincushion sign-ups needed.  Just bring your awesomely modern pincushion to the February meeting; where we will be voting on our favorites and then swapping them in a Rob Your Neighbor style game.

See You Saturday!!
