December Meeting Reminder

Our December meeting will be held in the Wiggin Memorial Library in Stratham NH on Saturday December 3rd, from 10am-12pm.

Potluck Snack: Please bring a special snack item to share in our pot-luck snack time if you are able. Please label items with the ingredients. In the past we have enjoyed quite the spread of breakfast/brunch type snacks. Colleen will be providing coffee, tea, water, and juice.

Yankee Swap: We will also be having a Yankee Swap at the meeting. If you would like to participate, please bring a new or gently used quilting book and a fat quarter that represents you in a generic, non-holiday gift bag with no name attached.

Zippered Pouch Donation Items: We made 75 (!!!) zippered pouches to donate to a substance abuse treatment facility in Dover. Kate is tracking down a similar facility for us to donate to in Massachusetts.  They have told us that the following items are most needed:

Shampoo
Conditioner
Toothpaste (JoAnne has this covered for us!)
Disposable razors
Shaving Cream
Soap/body wash
Lotion
Socks (mens and womens)

Please remember that all products must be non-aerosol, and the first 4 ingredients listed must not include alcohol. If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring them to the December meeting.

Dues: Dues for 2017 membership will be $50. This can be paid via cash or check at the December or January meetings, or through the PayPal button on our website.

Presidents Blocks: For the past two years we have made quilt blocks as a thank you to our guild president. For Mary, please use this tutorial http://www.polkadotchair.com/2015/09/september-block-of-the-month-plus-quilt-block.html/. The blocks finish at 15 inches, should have a low volume or white background, and be a rainbow of colors for the pluses. Diane will collect these at the December and January meetings.
Once I picked out which fabrics I was going to use for the color at the center, the block sewed up quickly!


Lastly, the QuiltCon Submission Deadline is Wednesday, Nov 30. The website to enter is http://quiltconentry.com/

Some of us have meetings to attend to in a weekly basis. Some of us have special occasions that we need to attend to every week. It would be great to have the best conference and meeting space San Francisco to conduct your meetings.
