Absentee ballot and November WIP/scrap/book/pattern auction reminder!

If you will miss our November business meeting (Nov. 2 10 am-12pm), I have posted an absentee ballot here. Please download and fill out the document using Word, and return via email to Laura (lacollins AT gmail DOT com) by Friday November 7. We are voting on officers, as well as the new dues amount. Don't miss out on a chance to vote if you have to miss the meeting!

If you DO miss the November meeting, you'll be missing out on a lot of fun.

Clean out your scrap bin, your sewing room, your weird stash bits, your piles of unused craft and sewing books, your patterns...and put the stuff that's cluttering your creativity and making you feel guilty towards our guild's MQG dues! For a fun post-business meeting activity, we'll be holding a WIP/scrap pack/craft book/pattern auction. Be sure to bring about $10 in small bills to shop until you drop--or, a checkbook, if you're planning on going big! 

We'll auction off some of the biggest items live-auction-style, and then do rummage-sale style for the other, smaller items. On my first editing pass I pulled the pile of fabrics above (don't worry, I'll cut them down to look super-delicious, and you'll want them) and a copy of Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross (that is missing the pattern insert, so I don't use it). 

What will you unload?! (Feel free to post photos to our SMQG Flickr page, so we can ogle and pre-shop :) )
