December meeting recap

Hello! Our agenda this month was a little short - no challenges or swaps to give everyone time to make their Secret Quilter gifts due at the January meeting. Reminder to members that dues for 2018 must be paid by the January meeting. Get your WIP It Up entries in by December 31!

Jess S led an information session about our Quilt-A-Long for 2018. She also posted all of the info on our website: Modern FMQ QAL - 2018 Guild Quilt-A-Long. The will be updated with the mystery theme each month, in case you miss a meeting (or are joining the QAL remotely). The theme for January is loops.

We had a discussion of the sewn items we include in our holiday traditions. Members mentioned things like patriotic tablerunners for Memorial Day and Independence Day, as well as handmade stockings and tree skirts for Christmas.

December's Show and Tell always has a lot of sharing, because our members make so many gifts! Here's what we saw:
