December is the season of giving and with that, we wanted to plan a FUN December meeting that helps Philanthropy reach their goal of giving baby quilts for the January baby showers at Camp Pendleton. The December Guild meeting will be one BIG friendship group that includes a Sew-Along with fellow Guild members, holiday music, a Mug Rug exchange, some fun prizes (just for attending) homemade treats and hot chocolate bar. We hope that you can join us!
WEAR COMFY, FESTIVE ATTIRE, or whatever makes you happy: holiday themed sweats, sweaters, head bobbers, necklaces, fun socks, yoga pants.
BRING YOUR SEWING MACHINE, white and/or gray sewing thread, and an extension cord (if you have one) at 6:15pm to get a table and set up. Label them please.
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEW the Quilt Top: bring hand sewing, knitting, crochet, cross stitch or similar project to work on during the fun meeting. There will be round tables for this. Seat yourself and enjoy the meeting.
MUG RUG EXCHANGE: You are invited to make and bring a wrapped Mug Rug to the December meeting. Click here for Jennifer's mug rug sample. For a quick and easy pattern, click here to go to our Speaker page for more details.
HOLIDAY REFRESHMENTS: Hospitality will have pre-made, wrapped treats and waters as usual, plus hot water and cocoa mix. If the North Pole Elves have inspired you, we invite you to bring favorite holiday cookies and treats to the meeting if you wish! Kindly use a disposable plate(s) for easy clean up. Ideas: Sugar or Sugar Free treats, including sugar cookies, kolaches, rugulah, crème puffs, spritz cookies, thumb prints, Florentine cookies, buckeye balls, peppermints, gingerbread cookies, FUDGE, Divinity, meringues, madeleines, chocolate chip cookies. Break out the recipes … let’s make this fun!
