January 2016 Meeting ReCap

Welcome back to all those who joined us this month, we hope we have a grand quilty year!
Some big news: MEETING LOCATION CHANGING. Due to our member size, we will no longer be meeting at Crafty Threads.  We want to thank Barb for all of her time and space at Crafty Threads, for letting us meet there for over the past year.  However leadership has decided we need more space!  We will now be meeting at the Jimmie B Keel Library on Bearrs Ave. For our longer lasting members, we are returning to where we used to meet!  In the past this was a more central meeting location, which we hope it returns to being. The library community rooms gave us ample space for working and having fun. Meeting times and days remain the same.
At our January meeting we began collecting quilts for our show at the Lakeland Sewing Expo in March. We have 13 quilts promised so far.  Let's hit 20!  Every member is welcome to submit a quilt to hang at the show. Your quilt must have a hanging sleeve on the back. When submitting the quilt we will give you a submission form to sign.

In addition, please email Ellen BY the February meeting your quilt name, your name, and a description of the quilt.  We need to get the label information to the expo a month in advance of the show.
UFOs are now CEOs, Completely Executed Objects! If you didn't bring your fat quarters for our CEO game, still bring them!  Our first drawing for completing these will be given at the April meeting.  Bring as well any old projects you wish to swap with other members. I hope the new year brings you all lots of quilting time and fresh starts, see you next month at the library!
