President's Message Nov 2009

Hi everyone!

WOW! What else can I saw about last month's meeting? It was wonderful! The auction was great! I know Parker House will be thrilled with the incredible amount of money we raised. The auction garnered over $2100 for this charity that does so much for children in peril. Many, many thanks to everyone involved. Diana and her committee did an outstanding job!! Thanks to everyone who brought food to share, who took up donations, and made everything happen so smoothly. Additional thanks to those who added to the festive Halloween "Spirits" by coming in costume. Kathleen Dabney had a cat costume with beautiful make-up. There were lots of "stitch witches." It was great to see our guild so actively participating with such generosity and working together.

I imagine that this month's meeting will be another "wow" meeting! We are all looking forward to the Scrap Challenge quilts as well as the show & tell from Houston. It promises to be a great night!

Don't forget----there will be a special "gift" on the birthday table from the board ...We are hoping that the membership will want to buy lots of chances!!!

Happy Quilting!!!

Things to bring to the meeting:
  • Scrap Challenge Quilts to display (open at 5:30 for hanging)
  • November Birthday Raffle items
  • Show and tell items
  • Houston International Quilt Show finds
  • Fat Quarters for the lotto - Christmas prints (as many as you like)
  • Wear your fiber name tag
