Holiday Gathering

Lots going on for our meeting on December 12.  Don’t forget it begins a half hour earlier at 6:30 pm.  Can’t wait to sample all of the delicious goodies that everyone will bring and share.  If you are making something and think that others may want the recipe, please bring the recipe with you or email it to me and I will add a recipe section to the newsletter in January. 

We have many requests for donations to not only the church’s food larder, but also for Laurel House.  Please consider bringing something to the December meeting for both of these worthy causes.. See the newsletter for all the details.

Tucker Trimmer?  Wing Clipper?  Is County Line Quilters Guild going into the exercise business?  Heaven forbid!  No, these are just two of the Studio 180 tools that Ellen Cicak & Sisters will be demonstrating at the February 8th guild meeting.  And after they show us how to use these amazing tools, they will show us some of their beautiful quilts that they made using these techniques.  Then there will be a test (sort of!) and an opportunity to purchase these handy dandy tools.  Please join us at 7 PM for a fun evening.
