Reminder: Guild meeting Tuesday!

I kind of missed the fireworks on New Year's (zzzzz), so in case you missed them too, here's a beautiful fireworks quilt, which won an award at Paducah 2010. Oooh....aaaahhhh!!!

During this meeting, we'll have an annual yard sale and be voting on the 2017 Raincross Quilt Guild board.

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:
  • New or gently used items for the annual yard sale - 10% of your total sales will be due to the guild
  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your Raincross Quilt Guild pin, which is now worth an EXTRA ticket in the door prize drawing! If you don't have one, you can purchase one for $5 at the door.
  • If you were born in January, March, June, or July, you are invited to bring a snack to share (but it's not required!)
  • Bottled water or other nonalcoholic drink

You are also welcome to bring your 2017 Guild dues of $25, which will be due at the February meeting. Checks are welcome but as a reminder, may not be cashed immediately, so you are also welcome to bring cash or cashier's check. Thank you!

See you all Tuesday!

We will be working at the Rancho Caballero's Club House on Saturday February 4th from 9am-10pm, so feel free to join us for a part or the whole day. We'll have a salad potluck for lunch and then order pizza for dinner.
