Cross Stitch Pattern Becomes A Quilt
November?...Now how did that happen? I don’t know about you, but I’m really confused. I’d like to know how we got to November when I still have stuff on my list from January. On that note, let’s sum up what’s left for the guild this year.
November will see Shari Brindley and Kim Gros giving some tips and techniques on those really cute cross stitch inspired quilts. I will also have another two boxes of books for sale at $1 each. There will be some special drawings for next month’s meeting. You have be present to win, so come and bring a friend.
December will see our annual holiday pot luck dinner and gift exchange. Remember that it is a member’s only event. Bring a dish to share and your own beverage. The guild will furnish plates, eating utensils and napkins. Pot luck begins at 6:30 p.m.
For the fabric gift exchange, I’d like you to consider this theme, “Color Me Happy”. Bring 1/3 yard of a focus and 1/3 yard of two coordinating fabrics in colors or theme that make you happy. Then I thought it would be cool for the February Inner Artist challenge to use the fabric you get to create a “Color Me Happy” quilt where you use the three you got in exchange and up to three other fabrics from your stash.
I will have whatever books are left up for sale, so consider your Secret Stitcher or favorite friend and get them a book.
Lesa Bame, Vice President
We now have a nomination for President and Treasurer!!! So the guild will be voting in November!
We also had a few people step forward for other positions:

Thank you ladies!!!
We still need volunteers for Sunshine Lady, Hospitality, Community Quilts, Newsletter/Bylaws, Mailing/Bylaws, and Library.
Please think about how much time you have to help out. Some of these jobs don’t require a lot of time and some do, however, they are needed. Try to see where one of these jobs will fit into your time schedule. Thanks again.
