2015 Christmas Party Highlights

Another year has come to an end for the North Star Quilt Guild and we said good bye to 2015 with our annual Christmas Party.  We had a full house and it was wonderful to visit with all the members and guests!

Thank you to everyone that donated an item to our Silent Auction, this is still one of our best fundraisers.  

We had a lot of yummy cookies, hot cider, coffee and tea to keep the atmosphere festive!

 The raffle were a big hit too.  The winner of our Christmas quilt was Marg Faktor, the Fabric Bundles went to Myrna Agerbak and Val Whitbread, and the Tuffet was won by Iris Bailey!  Congratulations everyone!

On November 28 Rae Baumgartner was able to attend the Habitat for Humanity Open House and present the family with the quilts the guild made for them.

The guild completed a few more Stitch and Flip quilts to start building our comfort quilt supply up again.

Thank you to everyone that made place mats for Meals on Wheels.
