Holidays Approaching

If you are anticipating all the time you need to finish projects in time for the Holidays, I think the only way we may be able to accomplish everything we would like, is to have 36-hour days – not 24-hour days! Then of course we’ll need the energy to keep us going! Some things that may help keep us focused:

Ø Spend some time with God – always motivating and inspiring

Ø Take time to pamper yourself – each of us has a different idea of pampering – use yours

Ø Eat healthy, nutritious meals – sugar slows things down – so stay away from it

Ø Spend time with family and friends – working together on things that will lessen the load

Ø Spend time being creative, using your artistic talents that God gave you

Ø Take a cat nap to recharge

Guild Christmas Party

The guild Christmas Party will be Monday, November 23. The doors will be open at 6:00p.m. with the party starting at 7:00p.m. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass and a fat quarter to exchange. Also, remember to bring your first quilt and your last quilt for show-and-tell. (Photos will work if you no longer have them.)

Sewing Day

Because everyone is so busy, there will be no guild sewing day on December 12. Use the day to do something you would like – probably sewing!

Sleep Over & January Meeting

There will be a sleep-over in January. It will get started at 2:00-3:00p.m. on Friday. Pizza will be ordered for supper on Friday. Saturday Pam will provide the dinner. The January meeting will be held at 9:30a.m. on Saturday. More news to follow on this.

Quilting Retreat

Linda has scheduled a quilting retreat for the second weekend in April. The cost will be $150 for the weekend with the first $50 due in January. Linda will have more information on this on Monday.

Websites to Check Out

I came across 2 websites that you can check out: and

Quilts of Valor

Quilts of Valor is a quilting project that provides quilts to injured military personnel. They are looking for quilters to donate quilts for this very worthwhile project. You can find more details at their website or I will have information with me at the guild meeting November 23.

Looking forward to seeing all of you Monday!
