Holiday Party Info & Reminder

Just a reminder that our annual guild holiday party is coming up next Sunday, December 8th.

Invites have been sent to all current members and we’re asking that you RSVP by Sunday, December 1st, just so that we can get a head count and know how many tables/chairs that we need to set up at the venue.

We encourage you to carpool to the event, as some of the parking is a bit farther away. Additional parking is just to the north of the main entrance and we will have signs directing you where to park.

We will be playing two games of LCR (a dice game) with fat quarters at the party. One game will be with low volume fabrics and the second will be rainbow with fabrics of any color. In order to play, just bring three FQs, either low volume, rainbow, or both. You may choose to play in both games, just one, or none – it’s up to you. The winner of each particular game takes home all of the FQs of that round!

Feel free to bring hand work projects to work on as we eat, chat, and celebrate this past year.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the party!

Holiday Party Mini Quilt Swap

We will be having our annual mini quilt swap at this year’s holiday party on Sunday, December 8th. Sign ups will be open for this swap until Monday, September 16th, after which partner pairings will be made and then emailed out within a week.

Mini quilts for this swap should follow these guidelines:

  • Quilts are not holiday specific, unless your partner indicates on their form that they would like something holiday themed.
  • Minis should be no larger than 24″x24″
  • The quilt can be any type of shape.
  • Must be quilted and bound by the maker.
  • Should have some sort of hanging method and label on the back.

Partners will be revealed at the holiday party during the swap, so please do not reveal who you are making for until that point. The minis also do not need to be wrapped, as we will hang them up for display during the party.

If you’re interested in signing up for the swap, please fill out this form: Mini Quilt Swap Sign Up.
