November 17th meeting reminder

Note from Holly: I sent this out to our mailing list (sign up here) via email on Thursday but forgot to blog about it. Sorry if you’re only getting your meeting reminder now! Hope to see you tomorrow!

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, November 17th

A few reminders:

1) Membership renewals: Thanks to the 45 members who renewed their memberships or became members at our October meeting! Memberships expired on October 31st, so it’s membership renewal time! If you haven’t yet renewed your membership, it would help us out if you could bring in your completed membership form and $50 payment so we can sign you up for another year of inspiration with the VMQG! Guest fees for non-members are $5/meeting.

2) To our 35 members participating in the Teeny Weeny Swap with our Australian friends in Sydney and Brisbane, here’s your reminder to bring in your items on Monday (unwrapped) and attach a card with your contact info (at least name and email). Please help us keep postage fees low by only handing in your item and omitting any extra goodies.

3) If you participated in the Round Robin, please bring back your quilt top so we can take a group shot. Thanks!
