December 16th meeting reminder

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, December 16th

We look forward to seeing you on Monday night for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild’s holiday meeting! This month, Heather will be hosting us at the common room of her building. Non-members are welcome to come as guests, please email Heather at secretary@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca for details. This will be a fun and festive gathering with a focus on show and tell and treats rather than guild business. We can’t wait to give out Riley Blake Challenge fabric to members! We’ll also have needlebooks for those who participated in the swap with the London MQG and a holiday ornament swap. We’re hoping to add to the party atmosphere with a large selection of refreshments, so please consider bringing a treat. We look forward to seeing you there!

We have started a sign up sheet for show and tell so you don’t have to wait in line until your name is called. If you have something to share, please sign up at the registration table before the meeting. If you arrive part way through show and tell, we still want to see what you have to share! We’ll give you a chance to jump in once we’ve gone through the list.

As our membership year ended on October 31st, it’s time to renew memberships! Thanks to the seventy-four of you who have renewed or joined as a new member! See our blog for a full list of member benefits. To register as a member (either new or renewing), print out this 2013-14 Membership Form (68KB .pdf file), fill it in, and bring it to Monday night’s meeting along with $50 cash or a cheque for payment.
