I hope that everyone who attended our holiday party had a great time. There were plenty of savories and even more sweets to sample. With raffle baskets, silent auction items, games and entertainment, the evening flew by. Plus, we got to hear from some of the recipients of our charity quilts and see the pile of quilts that represented the fruits of your labor. A special thanks to Fatima Diaz for taking on this event and organizing such a great time for the final meeting of the year.
If you missed the holiday party, be sure to come to the January meeting and pick up your packet of tickets to sell or purchase for our current raffle quilt. This quilt will be awarded at our Quilt Show in April so we only have a few more months to sell tickets. Be sure to let Rita know if you can take the quilt and sell tickets at another Guild or organization that you belong to.
Looking forward to January, I am excited to have Holly Casey presenting our next raffle quilt design. Be sure to join us so you can see what she has planned and how you can participate. It will be a fun quilt to work on and we are hoping to involve as many members as we can in the making of this quilt.
In the meantime, I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
