Block of the Month

Finishing kits for the Block of the Month will be available at the December meeting. 41 kits have already been ordered. If you did not order a kit you need to contact Karen Kendo at k.kendo@yahoo.com by December 5. Kits consist of a jelly roll of the fabrics used in the blocks all year and cost $15. Only 50 kits will be available. Thank you again for your wonderful support this year. We had fun, made beautiful blocks and quilts, and helped build the guild treasury so that we can have more wonderful programs and speakers in the coming years. We need someone to do the BOM for next year. It doesn't have to be as involved as this year. Maybe some splinter groups could divide up the year and each one take three months? Many members enjoy making the blocks and the chance to win a set. Let's keep the fun going.

Community OutreachHalos

December is already here! If you are coming to the December meeting, please bring your completed HALOS quilts. If you will not be attending our meeting, please call or email me and I will arrange to have your quilt picked up. This year we have donated over 60 quilts to HALOS! As we approach the New Year, if one of your resolutions is to whittle down your stash, this is a great way to do it. Any size quilt is acceptable from crib to queen, but the greatest need in for single bed size. Thank you to all who have helped on this project. Please bring your completed quilts to the meeting and give them to either Louise Schmidt or Martha Ferguson or contact Louise Schmidt directly or through the contact page. Click here for More info
