December Meeting Recap

I hope everyone enjoyed our final meeting of the year as much as I did!!!  We had a lovely gathering at Rebecca's new home catching up with quilty friends, old and new, and snacking on all the yummy treats brought to share.

We combined our Quilty (Yankee) Swap with show and tell.  The SeacoastMQG had to institute a "No hair-pulling" rule be we were much more polite with very few steals...  except from me.  I LOVE that you guys are so comfortable with me;-)

With a mix of handmade gifts, fabulous fabrics, and fun new notions, all of the gifts were so amazing I can't imagine anyone went home disappointed, even me.

A few announcements:

We will begin taking reservations for our annual retreat this Monday, December 9th at 9:00 AM.  This event is only open to paid  members of BostonMQG and SeacoastMQG and is a wonderful time to get to know the other guild members and share our creativity.  You can reserve your spot with a $50 deposit.  Watch your email, the paypal link will be sent out Monday morning. We only have 42 spots this year, so don't delay!

2014 Meetings:
It seems our usual 3rd Saturday of the month meeting day is going to fall on every spring holiday this year so we'll need to juggle some dates.  I will post the full calendar for the year soon but our first meeting of 2014 will be held January 25th in Billerica and will feature a presentation "How to Keep Your Machine OUT of the Shop!"  by the incredible Erin Daley of Daley by the Yard.  Watch the events tab for more details.

Riley Blake Challenge:  
Just a reminder that the deadline for completing your Riley Blake challenge is February 17th.  Photos must be uploaded to the MQG forum by that date.  Please also bring your finished challenge to our February meeting to share.
