Meeting Thursday 15 th . December

We had the first meeting of the show committee in November and we are ready to start the

serious work of preparing for our show. 20 members volunteered to make blocks for the raffle

quilt – thanks to all concerned.

Thursday 18 th .May 2017

– put the date in your diary.

Before that…’s our annual Christmas celebration --

we hope it will be fun and get you into the Christmas spirit!

We ask for a small plate of finger food to share – Lunch will be at

12.30, so no one need bring a separate lunch, we are sure there will be

plenty left for those who come later – the tables are usually groaning!

There will be no charge for tea and coffee this month.

When you arrive please put your secret Santa (wrapped) into Santa’s

bag, they will be given out later in the afternoon. We will open our secret

Santas for everyone to see the amazing ideas members have – it doesn’t have

to be complicated to be effective

The raffle – everyone will be given a free raffle ticket during the

meeting. Any contributions for the raffle will be welcome and can be

put on the raffle table when you arrive. We will draw the raffle in the

afternoon and there will be as many winners as there are raffle prizes.

Have you made some Christmas bunting? If so will you bring it along to the meeting so that we

can ‘deck the halls’, the bunting is yours to keep – but we would like to see it this month and at

the show.

As always, the most important thing to bring is yourself – if you can’t bring any of

the other things it doesn’t matter. This is our light hearted Christmas celebration and we all enjoy

it! Do wear your Christmas sparkles if you want to get in the Christmas spirit.

We will have a few Christmas ‘activities’ to put you in the party spirit, we hope you will join in –

there may not be much time or space for sewing!

Let’s make our show and tell a Christmas show and tell this month – anything you have

made on a Christmas theme or for Christmas.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all

from the committee of Loddon Quilters
