Dec. 6th • Holiday Party
We will once again have a Holiday Party for our December Guild meeting. It will be Tuesday December 6 at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Grass Valley. It’s a potluck. Please bring a dish, serving 6-8, according to the first letter of your last name: A-E Salad, F-J Main, K-R Appetizer, SY Dessert. In keeping with the upcoming quilt show theme of “Honoring our Quilting Foremothers”, if you want to bring a family favorite recipe, feel free to bring that instead of your designated item. Include a little sign so we can enjoy the history. We’ll have some fun games and prizes also.
Please let me know if you’re interested in selling items if we have a Holiday Boutique (email firstname.lastname@example.org). We’ll include one if we have enough interest. Watch the December newsletter for the final decision.
Hope to see you all there.

Dear Fellow Quilters,
We have new members on the Executive Board for 2017. Thanks to Bonnie Lattin-Hensel for accepting the position of Secretary. For the first time ever, we will have the position of Vice President shared by Sophia Day and Nancy Holt – thank you to both. In addition, Pat Gillings was elected as Treasurer, and Susie Hardy was elected as President. I know they will do a great job. As you know the guild is only as great as our members.
I hope the cooler weather and now rainy weather allows you time to sew. I like to get up early and exercise during the week before I start my day. On the weekends, I like to lay awake in bed for a few minutes looking out the window at the birds or listening to the wind and rain. I am a California girl who loves the sunshine. I feel myself getting depressed when I don’t see the sun which is why my husband installed LED daylight bulbs in my sewing room. They actually do double duty: I can see true colors of thread and fabric, and they help me overcome the sunlight deficiency. I would highly recommend replacing some bulbs in your sewing room with LED daylight bulbs. They come in different sizes and even fit into regular table lamps. The other benefit is that they don’t as much in
electricity as older non-LED bulbs.
At the November guild meeting we will have a trunk show with the Pixeladies. They will even share some fabric wrapping techniques. Please bring a 42” x 42” piece of fabric to try fabric wrapping. It sounds like a lot of fun.
Our program tonight will include a chance to use up some of your fabric stash! Bring some squares of fabric and learn how to take a square of fabric and transform it into a couple of bags. The Japanese call it furoshiki, but the Pixeladies call it fun! Come join us and learn a new skill! This is a hands-on demonstration, so please come prepared if you want to wrap along with us.
Two squares of fabric ( one app 28” and one app. 45”) pick fabrics that drapes well, like rayons, silks, and lightweight cottons
Two wine bottles, empty or full One 1-2 lb candy box (empty or not)
Two books, same size

There will be no workshop in November.
