Tuesday, November 27, 7:00 PM, Lifelong - Guild Committee Meeting Night. We will divide up into our Guild Committees and discuss the upcoming business and needs for 2019. Many of you are on more then one committee, so you will need to circulate. This is a good opportunity for members who have not committed to a Guild volunteer position to shop around and get involved. This will also allow us to update our current data regarding who is chairing which committee. If you currently head up a committee you make every effort to be there or delegate another within your group to be in charge for the evening. Descriptions of the Guild Committees can be found HERE.
There will also be an animal Show-and-Tell. Since we all might be birded-out after Thanksgiving, we’ll ask you to bring four-footed animal (that includes mammal, frog, lizard, dinosaur and turtle!) quilts and save the bird, fish, insect and snake quilts for January’s show-and-tell. If you have a quilt with a variety of animals including a bird or two, bring it along!
Tuesday, December 11 - Annual Holiday Party. 6:30 PM . Please note the earlier start time. Dish to Pass. Please attach a card to your dish that lists the ingredients. We will enjoy a meal together, games , door prizes and show and tell. Keep an eye on the list serve for more details as they unfold.Volunteers Needed, please contact Lori

2018 HOLIDAY BLOCK
This year’s holiday block exchange is a pieced snowball block with wintery fabric as the focus.
If anyone has not done a holiday block exchange before it is a fun way to participate in a guild project. You can make as many blocks as you would like. For each block you can place your name in a box for a drawing to receive a group of blocks. We typically get plenty of blocks which means that there can be several winners. If you win the blocks you can use them in any way you would like. The blocks are due the first meeting in December which is also our holiday party and the winners will be chosen at that time.
The block is a 6 ½ in unfinished block that will finish to 6 inches. Each block requires a focus fabric and 4 squares to make the corners of the block:
Choose a focus fabric and cut a 6 ½” square
Cut 4 – 2 ½”squares of a white or cream tone-on-tome
Lightly draw a diagonal line on the back of each of the 2 ½” squares
With right sides together, place a white square on each corner with each end of the diagonal line touching the side of the focus square.
Sew on the drawn line of each square
Press the fabric toward the corners.
Trim the bottom 2 layers off from the corners
The block will measure 6 ½”
