The Hospitality Table provides sustenance to hungry quilters and a relaxing place to gather and chat with friends.
Monthly refreshments are provided by members according to the following schedule but feel free to bring a snack even if it isn’t your designated month! Everyone who brings a treat will receive a ticket to the monthly raffle.
Hot water for coffee and tea will be provided. Please bring a mug or travel cup so we can reduce paper waste.
But Wait There’s More … Many hands make light work!
The Committee needs a few volunteers to help at the Hospitality table each month. If you have been selected to bring the snack and can come early to help set up or help serve and clean up, please email me to volunteer. No hair net required!
Members are asked to bring snacks according to the following schedule:
September– Members whose last names begin with G, H, I
October – Members whose last names begin with M, N, O
November – Members whose last names begin with P, Q, R
December – ALL MEMBERS – bring your favorite holiday treats
January – Members whose last names begin with J, K, L
February – Members whose last names begin with D, E, F
March – Members whose last names begin with S
April – Members whose last names begin with T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z
May – Members whose last names begin with A, B, C
June – ALL MEMBERS – Salad Supper
Here are some food suggestions to consider if baking isn’t your thing:
- Fresh fruit in easy, bite-sized pieces
- Trail mix, spiced nuts, peanuts, pretzels
- Cheese and crackers
- Veggie platter and dip
- And remember, finger foods rule!
At most meetings, the Hospitality Team hosts a monthly raffle. Tickets are three for a dollar. Items include a variety of quilt-related supplies and fabrics. This is a fun way to try a fabric or material you might otherwise not purchase. Winners are generally announced once the meeting moves to the Auditorium.
