November Meeting Wrap Up and December Meeting News!

Okay, I'm a couple weeks late in posting about our November meeting. I'm sorry! But I have a feeling I'm not the only one who's been busy, what with Thanksgiving and Christmas-related sewing going on!

Our November meeting was great. A little different, since we met at 2 pm, instead of 10 am, but everyone made it, and we even had a new face! We love to see new faces!

We talked about starting to meet for monthly Saturday sews in the New Year! We decided that we would try to split up our sew-ins between Crestview and Pensacola. So, on January 21, we'll be meeting in Crestview at First Baptist Church, 171 Hickory Avenue, from 12-6. We're hoping to meet in Pensacola for the month of February, but the details have not been finalized yet, so stay tuned for that.

These monthly sews will be a great way to spread your stuff out and get alot of work done!

We also talked about starting to take dues in January. We agreed that dues would be a good thing to start, but haven't settled on an amount yet. We'll talk more about that at our next meeting.

I talked about my recent trip to International Quilt Market in Houston. If you're interested in that, I blogged about it here. The good thing about going to Market was that I brought back alot of stuff that ended up being door prizes! Don't worry, if you missed the November meeting, I still have some Market goodies that will be given away at the December meeting.

Then came the really exciting part - the scrap swap! Almost everyone brought a sandwich bag filled with scraps to swap with someone else. Our next meeting is going to be so great, seeing what everyone made with the scraps, and giving the items back to the original owner!

In other news, for our December meeting we will not be meeting at The Sewing Center Around the Block!!!

Did you get that?

The meeting will not be at the store!

We'll be meeting at my house on Friday, December 16 at 10 am. If you want to come to the meeting, email emeraldcoastmqg@gmail.com to get the address. I don't want to post it here for all to see.

So again, our next meeting will be on Friday, December 16 at 10 am at my house.

I just want to make sure that's clear.

Not only will we be exchanging our swap items, but Kelly B. will be doing a free motion quilting demonstration, so you definitely don't want to miss that.

That's it! Hope to see you in a couple of weeks!
