Nimble Thimbles Christmas Party!

Our annual Christmas Party will be held on Tuesday, December 9, 6:00pm.  Be sure to RSVP and pay $10 by 12/1.  

Remember to bring your 2014 BOM color challenge quilt!  A "completed" quilt for this challenge is all 9 color blocks made into a top. It's great if you finish it completely, but only the top is required to meet the challenge goal!

At the Christmas Party we will be collecting for:
My Sister's Place - white goods, personal products, coloring books, and washable crayons; C.A.R.E. Center with Holy Trinity Lutheran Church - dry goods, cakes mixes, pudding mixes, jello, and dry potatoes (4-5 serving boxes).

See you at the Christmas Party!

Bonnie Hunter is Coming!!

After two years of waiting, Bonnie Hunter’s class is almost here!  The class is Jan. 8th from 9-4 at Holy Trinity church.  The class is $40 and the pattern is Happy Scrappy Houses.  The pattern is free off her website and I have a supply list.  If you haven’t paid you need to do it at our Nov. 11th meeting at the latest. (We have to send our money into AQG).  If you are not signed up and are interested please see me.

We are going to do a potluck for lunch.  Also I would like to do a trunk show.  If you can bring to the class any Bonnie Hunter quilt you have done as well as your color challenge.  We will do the trunk show after lunch.

It is going to be a great time!
