First, a big reminder – this month’s Meeting is being held a week earlier than normal on December 13th.  In this season of thankfulness, I want to thank those of you who brought food items in November to donate to the local food pantries.  If you missed the opportunity to bring an item, you can always contact your local food pantry directly to make a donation.  There are many people in our community who could use some extra help.

Some of you may have noticed a glitch in the Membership Directories.  Despite the proof reading efforts of Jennifer and me, the book was published with everyone’s cell number also listed as their home phone.  We will have an insert to the Directory available at our December meeting that lists both numbers correctly.

We are trying something new for our February Winter Program – an Ugly Fabric Auction!  This fun filled event is sure to amuse you.  Donna is bringing in two entertaining auctioneers to run the event.  We will be collecting your fabric donations starting this month on through to the February meeting.  More information can be found in the February Program article.

I had mentioned at our November meeting that there is a new quilt magazine called Quiltfolk that I saw at the Houston Quilt Show.  The magazine is a quarterly publication with stories about quilters, and it is chock full of beautiful photos of people and quilts.  With over 150 pages and no advertising, it is a unique concept in depicting the art of quilting.  We have a few copies of the inaugural issue of the magazine in our Library to look at.  The publisher has supplied us with subscription cards that give 10% off an annual subscription. Additionally for each subscription sold by the Guild, we will receive a 10% commission.  Subscription cards will be at the Library Table.  I urge you to take a look at the magazine, and consider purchasing a subscription – it would make a great holiday gift.

I wish everyone a wonderful and happy holiday season.

Susan Fasnacht, President
