Reminder: Guild Meeting next Tuesday (with new information about the meeting!)

Along with the reminder that our regular guild meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday starting at 6pm at the Goeske Center, we have new information to share about this meeting as well as the December meeting.

Starting first with the December meeting: the Goeske Center's hours for December mean that we unfortunately cannot have an in person meeting there next month. But never fear! Santa elves are busy planning a fun filled holiday extravaganza of a meeting via Zoom -- more details to come soon. This will mean, however, that we will miss having a regular holiday potluck at the December meeting, one we're sure everyone has missed since our last one was December 2019.

So, instead of having a holiday potluck in December this year, we're having a Thanksgiving potluck at the November meeting! Have a new recipe you've been anxious to try out for the holidays? Well give it a try and we'll be your guinea pigs! Bring your taters, your stuffing, your gravy, your pie...sheesh, I'm already getting hungry.

Note: bringing a dish to the potluck is not at all required and is open to whomever would like to participate.

And we are still having our Grab Game, so join in the fun!

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:

  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your Show and Share quilts
  • Your Grab Game item
  • Your October Block of the Month
  • Your Raincross Quilt Guild pin, which is worth an EXTRA ticket in the door prize drawing! If you don't have one, you can purchase one for $5 at the door.
  • Bottled water or other non-alcoholic drink
  • If you feel inspired, a dish for the potluck.

November Grab Game - Make What You Want!

It's that time of year again and we're getting ready for our annual November Grab Game! This year the theme is Make What You Want, dealer's choice! Feeling like making a table runner, or a mug rug, or a pincushion? How about a casserole carrier, Christmas stocking, or small bag? It's your choice, just make sure it's something you've made.

We'll be bringing them to the November guild meeting, Tuesday November 15th - in whatever bag or wrapping you choose! And remember, please make something nice enough that you would want to keep it.

Please let us know if you have any questions!
