October Meeting 10/20/16

Hello my talented Beauties,

    I hope everyone is enjoying this fabulous weather lately and for those who are affected by the flood, I wish you speedy progress on your road to rebuilding.  It was so fantastic to see so many guild members show up at our last meeting regardless of what they were going through at that time in their lives.  Let's do it again & enjoy everyone's company, share some more laughs!  We are having our meeting onThursday, October 20, 2016 6:30 pm at the Jones Creek library.  At the September meeting everyone loved learning what Carol Hilton had to share with the guild, she is amazing!  Fantastic tips & ideas galore!  We are blessed to have the President of the Modern Quilt Guild, Pat R. Van Burkleo for our October program.  He will be sharing his fabulous modern quilts with the guild & telling us his story of how he got into quilting.  We are so excited to have him!   It is time to be thinking who you want for your SSQG Board of 2017, so please bring your nominations.  Our SSQG Christmas Party is booked for December 15, 2016 at City Cafe on O'neal Lane at 6:30 pm (Room 1), so mark your calendars!  Bring your tabs, door prize donations & completed UFO's to the meeting.  Please bring show-n-tell to share with the guild.  So take another break, come join me for another night of fun, creativity & much needed fellowship!!!

Humbly yours,

Pam Tennyson
