Dirty Santa Gift Exchange, for those that wish to participate, will be at the end of the party, this will be the last event of the evening. 

New game for this year: 

Groups of 5 people … okay to have 4 … depending on how many have signed up.  This is voluntary only those that want to play the game need enter.  You will need some kind of snips/ scissors to keep the game moving along.  

When instructed …. Snip it, rip it, drop it, pass it on.

  1. 1 yard becomes half yard, you keep a half yard but then pass on the other half. 

  1. Fabric for next rip is longest at the top (width of fabric)  …

  1. Half yard becomes fat quarter

  1. Fat quarter becomes … fat 1/8th

  1. Fat 1/8th becomes 1/16th …. A very small piece


Currently, other months will be guild activities … such as our annual guild auction, four corners, make and take, quilt bingo, Tea Party, etc.  We are always looking for new ideas / activities for the guild to do.  The board is hoping to be able to find other speakers to add to our calendar, but it will depend on our finances.  If you have any suggestions please let the board  know.

Reminder ... Please turn off phones, tablets any noise producing devises when the lecture and business meeting is being conducted.  If you have to take the call then please go into the hall.
