Volunteer Opportunities
Remember Senior Services!  We have fabric and batting available for making lap quilts. 

Quilt Raffle
We have a beautiful quilt made and raffle tickets available for sale.  We ask that each member sell at least 20 tickets.  For each 20 tickets sold, the member will receive 1 chance for an exclusive swag bag from our own Lee Monroe.

Member Dues
Dues for 2018 will be $40.  If you pay in October, you name will be put with the September dues payers for a fat quarter set drawing.

Coming Programs
The October meeting will be a round robin of member demonstrations.  We will also have the pin cushion swap.  If you brought a pin cushion, you will receive a pin cushion. 

The November meeting will be our Holiday gathering.  It will be a pot luck and decoration swap.  If you wish to be part of the swap, please bring a holiday decoration that you would be pleased to receive.  There will be 3 “time invested” categories in which you may participate:
a) less than one day’s effort
b) about one day’s effort
c) more than one day’s effort

September Meeting
Unfortunately, the home of our guest speaker was visited by a stomach illness.  Instead of a trunk show, we had very spirited games of Left, Right, Center.  Winners went home with fat quarters to add to their stash.

See you on October 23, 2018!
