December Meeting

We wanted to reminder everyone that our December meeting/social time is this Tuesday, December 3, at 6:30pm.  Instead of having the regular meeting we opted for a social get together to celebrate the holidays!  We would love to see all of our guild friends there.  If you are able to make it, here is a list of what you should bring with you:

1. A finger food item or dessert item (and a serving utensil if needed)
2. A handmade Christmas ornament for the ornament exchange.
3. Show and Tell
4. Completed project from the One Yard Rip Off Christmas Edition
5. We will also be accepting dues for the 2014 calendar year ($50)

This will be a very informal time to be able to get to know everyone better and to celebrate the holiday season!   See you this week.
