Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, December 15th
A few reminders:
1) We’re looking forward to celebrating the holidays with you at our December meeting! We’ll have cupcakes! And punch! We’re also putting out a call to members to bring in refreshments to make the party even more festive. Extra door prizes are always fun as well!
2) Thanks to those of you who have renewed your memberships! Our membership year started on November 1st, so if you haven’t renewed, what’s holding you back? (really, we want to know!)
3) We’ll be launching a mini fabric challenge for members only at our December meeting, don’t miss out!
4) Join in the fun with our ornament swap! There’s still time to make an ornament to exchange at our meeting. Bring an ornament, get an ornament!
