Christmas Party Reminder

Bring a friend, family member or two or three the more the merrier

Let's make this a green party.  Remember a coffee mug for you and each of your friends.

Remember a one colour solid, mottled, or tone on tone pastel fat quarter, for you and each of your guests, for the Fat Quarter exchange story.  Place your fat quarters in a plain brown paper bag or brown wrapping paper.

Silent Auction items should be to Alex B by noon on December 12th for organization.  Our auction is always so interesting.

Bring your show and tell, we all want to see it.  The draw of Show and Tell from June to December will be made at the party.

Meals on Wheels place mats will be presented during the evening.  Have you got one or two ready?

There are fabric draws and a quilt draw.  (Chances only available at the party)

Bring loonies, toonies, other cash and cheque books, to participate in the spent auction, the fabric draws, the quilt draw, and to make a donation to the coffee fund.

Remember donations of toonies to the coffee fund will go to a local charity.

And lastly, any finished Comfort quilt blocks.

Let's make this the merriest Christmas yet, filled with peace, joy, and good times, as we experience the sparkle in a youngster's eyes, and spend time with family, friends, and fellow quilters.

 Happy Quilting
