Loose Threads Christmas Party and other news

Last Meeting

Thank you Annette and Carolyn for our baked potato bar.  Yum.  Thanks to all who shared quilts.  Beautiful work, ladies.  Our UFO Gift Certificate winners were Christina Salazar and Donna Dieterle.  Congratulations!

Christmas Party

Our Christmas Party will be at Diane Cole’s house this year on the second Thursday, December 13 at 5pm.  Diane could you reply to all on this email list and give the directions to your house?  Thanks.

What to bring:

  1. Bring a dish to share: an appetizer or finger food.
  2. Bring your Dots and Stripes challenge from last Christmas to share.  At the last meeting we voted to have TWO gift certificate prizes for the top 2 quilts.  We’ll have ballots available for voting.  Added incentive to get those challenge quilts done!  (if you have the top together that’s good enough!)
  3. If you want to participate in the new 2013 Challenge, please bring a gift bag with FOUR quilting-quality batik fat quarters in it for an exchange.  The challenge will be to make a quilt incorporating the 4 batiks you will receive in the exchange.
  4. The Homemade Item Exchange is back.  Last year we all brought a homemade item and had a gift-stealing exchange.  It was a lot of fun.  Diane would like to do it again this year so if you want to participate, please bring a homemade item wrapped.  FYI – The item does not have to home-made by you!!  Last year we had things like a quilt, an apron, a scarf, a travel pillow and pillowcase, etc.
Our Christmas Party is always lots of fun so mark your calendar and don’t schedule anything else.  We want you there!



Teri has a  total of 34 pajamas  and all 75 pillows and cases. They will be delivered to friends in Ventura the first part of December and will be delivered to the kids in Mexico on December15th.  If anyone wants to donate any more PJs please get them to Teri ASAP (you can drop them by the church and tell them they are for Angi if you want!)  Teri will also pick them up for you if you need.

Thanks again for the beautiful pillowcases and lovely pjs.   The children will love them!!!!!!
