Music City MQG Christmas Party

Our Christmas Party this year was attended by a record number of people.  So many amazing Secret Santa Gifts were given that it was hard to take in all the fun ideas and gifts.  

Three people participated in an exchange of hand made gifts that was a new addition to our party this year.  This fun exchange is sure to grow in the upcoming years!  

After too much delicious party food was eaten, the party concluded with a cut-throat game of Fabric Dirty Santa.

Marcia shared her Lizzy House Meadow quilt with beautiful quilting.

Jennifer shared her almost completed Marcelle Medallion top.

Pictures of the fun in no particular order:

November Charity Sew

Our November meeting started off with the announcement of elections for 2018 officers and board members.  Online elections are now open and can be found at our members only Facebook page.  A link to the elections was also e-mailed to all members, so if you haven't voted yet, please do so.

Stefanie has sent out a link for everyone coming to our Christmas party to sign up to bring a potluck dish.  As a friendly reminder, if you are participating in the Secret Santa swap, time is ticking!  We can't wait to see the handmade gifts that everyone comes up with!!

Stefanie also let us know that there are still a few spots left at our retreat coming up in February.  If you know anyone interested in joining us, let them know that they are welcome!

Following a very impressive show and tell, 34 NICU smocks were made as our charity sew for November.

Here are the photos from our show and tell this month.  Boy do we have some talented members!!
(Some quilts were too large for the quilter to be included in the photo.  I have added their names under the photo)
