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!
