Christmas Message

Christmas Day will be here before you know it. We hope everyone is prepared for the holidays and that you have time with your loved ones. Hopefully someone will fulfill that Christmas Wish for a new sewing machine, fabric, quilting tool...whatever you asked for... And as we wind down to the end of the year, we wanted to wish you all the best for 2010.
May all of your ups and downs in life be with a needle and thread!
Happy Holidays to our Blogging and Quilting Friends.
Fun Old Hag and Jewels

Our Christmas Dinner

Here are some of the Q2ers patiently awaiting time to go to the buffet and fill their plates!

It was good! Dinner was at Pat and Jerry's in Auburn and for the first time in three years there was no snowstorm - at least until after everyone was home! This morning it looks just like Christmas out there!

There was a nice collection of food for the food drive of Our Redeemer Church for the students of Floyd Elementary School. The Round Robins were shown and redistributed to the participants for the next row.
After dinner, there was a great show and tell which you will find on the sidebar. I do want to single out Amanda's amazing scrap quilt! She is our youngest member (I think I am right on this and, if not, I know I would be right if I said "one of our youngest members"). You will see it in the slideshow - there are over 8000 little triangles in the quilt! Way to go, Amanda!!
Have a lovely Christmas season, fellow quilters!

Christmas Dinner Food Drive

Like previous years, we would like to take the opportunity during our December Meeting to give to others. This year it would be much appreciated if you could bring food items to support the regular collection by Our Redeemer Church for students at Floyd Elementary School. Following are suggested items you might consider donating (all items should be non perishable and keep kids in mind):

Granola Bars

Canned foods like Spaghetti O's, Fruit, Soup


Macaroni and Cheese

Juice Paks

Given the needs in our community this year we thought this would be a good place to contribute to. All donations are voluntary.

Thanks and see you all on the 8th!
(p.s. I love the vintage labels above, but I'll be also checking the expiration date ;> )

A Note from Nancy

The Christmas banquet is coming soon. If you haven't signed up and would like to attend simply call any of the folks on the Program Committee before next Friday, the 4th of December. Remember this is a go no matter what the weather.
