November meeting recap

November already! First, have a few things to remind our members as the year ends. Dues for 2018 must be paid to the treasurer (Beth) by December 31. The WIP It Up contest also ends December 31, so remember to fill out the form for each quilt you finish. Nominations for the 2018 board were taken at this meeting and we will accept more nominations at the December meeting, to be voted on in January.

Our annual fall retreat was held November 3-5th. We had almost a dozen attendees, saw lots of finished projects, and a great time was had by all. Keep an eye out for announcements for future retreats.

Speaking of the retreat, that's where Jess S finished the quilting of our QuiltCon Charity Quilt! She showed us before giving it to the next person who will do the binding.

We had a discussion about some of our favorite time-saving techniques for sewing, including things like glue basting and chain piecing.

Finally, the Guild Bee sewed Swoon blocks for Laura B!
