Meeting #59 - November 14th, 2015

Hello Modern Quilters,

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

:: We know that you've been working on lots of modern things as we've seen the start of them in Elizabeth Hartman's workshop, and lots more during SewMeSTL.  Please consider bringing them to a meeting this Fall/Winter, so we can ooh and aah in person. 

:: Our Charity Projects are coming to a close.  Do you have a quilt to donate to Project Linus?  This Saturday is the last day we will be collecting them. Don't forget Casey's announcement that all those who donate a quilt to us in November or have donated a quilt as part of this project to us earlier in the year will be entered into a drawing for a prize (1 quilt donation = 1 entry, 2 quilt donations = 2 on and so forth).

:: Have you forgotten about the Tool Swap? Remember to pick up a new tool/notion with a retail value between $10-20 (or combination of items reaching that total). For those who participate we will be doing a round-robin style swap.

:: It's time to start thinking about next year's dues.  Remember they are $40 and can be paid by cash or check (made out to the STLMQG).  All dues must be paid by the December meeting, so that we can get final numbers into The MQG.

:: Finally, who can forget our upcoming December Fundraiser.  Please remember to bring items this Saturday, and come December we will all have the chance to take some goodies home.  Need more details on how this works, check out this link from 2013; which breaks it all down.  Just remember, this is NOT the time to bring in items suited for the free table or the trash bin.  We are looking for top quality donations that you would be proud to share with the guild.

See You Saturday!!
