December 7, 2015 – Annual Christmas Party
The Annual Loose Threads Christmas Party will be at Diane’s house on Monday, December 7 at 5pm. Bring savory holiday food to share. She’ll provide drinks and dessert. (Diane sent an email out with directions to her house.)
- Homemade Item gift exchange is back on. Bring a homemade item (doesn’t have to be homemade by you!) if you want to participate. We’ll do your typical gift stealing exchange!
- Challenge Quilts and Bonus Gift Certificates: At our annual Christmas party we will have a bonus gift certificates drawing to award those that finish our Challenge Quilts for the year. This year you can put your name in once for every quilt you share: February’s Mystery Quilt or the quilt you make from our Scrappy Block exchange (2015) or your Round Robin Quilt (2014-2015 – ending in September 2015). You are not required to make all of these quilts (Pogie!). It just gives you more chances to win a prize, the more quilts you complete! You can also share a Row by Row Experience Quilts (if you’ve had time to make one! If not, let’s continue this challenge on into 2016!) Check out – The Row by Row Experience website. See the California Row by Row Experience on Facebook for ideas.
