November Meeting & Special Event

There will be TWO events in November!

November Meeting: On Saturday, Nov. 4 we will meet at the Exeter Public Library and vote on officer positions. The meeting will begin at 10:00am.

Exeter Public Library

Makers Market: We will have a booth at Pintuck & Purl's Makers' Market in Hampton from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11 and Sunday, Nov. 12.

December Meeting 
Location TBD. We will have our Holiday Party AND display the quilts made as part of the Presidents' Challenge, announced last April. Here are the details:
* Can be a small (up to 30” x 40”) or large project

Hopefully MQG-inspired – make something inspired by a webinar you’ve seen – the point is to do something that’s new-to-you whether in terms of color, design, or technique.

* We encourage original designs but you can also use a pattern.

* We can supply you with a creative “constraint” if you wish -- email me if you are interested. (Examples: use only solid colors / use only two colors / use a colorway that you typically avoid, etc.)

Prizes will be awarded.
