January Meeting -- 1/19/2017

Happy New Year all you Sassi Strippers!

I am so excited about 2017. It will be an opportunity to put all the trials and tribulations of 2016 behind us. I plan on a year of fun and quilting. I'm really looking forward to be your new president. I have very big shoes to fill.

Our Christmas party was terrific. A million thanks to our president and her helpers for a great time. The food was delicious and the activities a trip. I may have to nominate our Pam as the poet laureate of Louisiana. There were certainly times that I didn't know my left from my right. Thank you so much Pam for a wonderful party, not to mention 2 great years.

Our meeting is this Thursday January 19 at 6:30 at the library. We will be sewing and preparing bears for stuffing for the Giving Quilt Show Feb. 4th and 5th at the Lamar Dixon Center in Gonzales. Please bring your sewing machine to the meeting if you can sew bears. Having an extension cord is probably a good idea. If you are not sewing bears, please bring scissors to cut out or trim and clip sewn bears. Call if you have any questions. More info about the show and other activities at the meeting.

Dates to remember are below:

January 28  GSQA General Meeting, EBR Main Library 10am

January 31  Deadline to register for classes and/or events at the GSQA Seminar

Mynan has asked that everyone bring ideas for programs for this year.

Can't wait to see you guys,
