Gobble gobble, It is HERE!

Hi there, welcome to NOVEMBER!

I feel like I am just riding the time wave this year, every month I think "Where did April go?" But it is LONG gone and here we are peeking in to the holiday season.

For those of you interested in getting a EMQG button for your blogs and whatever other fun media you are attracted to (wait, that just doesn't sound right), we are having an ongoing discussion about which button we like better. The current front-runner is pictured above. To participate in the cheering or to post your own button for discussion (or to just try and figure out what I am talking about, it is OK, we are all learning new things around here.) Check out the General Discussion under the Forum tab.
Are you ready for this month's meeting?? It is right around the bend, Wednesday night, Nov. 10th at the usual haunt, Piece by Piece fabrics. I was thinking it might go like this:

6:30-7:00 Meet and greet.

7:00-Gavel thuds!

Quilting Bees



Update on Meeting spaces.



-Market of Choice

-Rec Guide

Sew Nights-

Thursdays? more? informal?

Sew Days-

3rd Saturday or Sunday? Rotating?

Web site.... come on people, how is it going?

7:20ish-Show and Tell

*We all bring our wonderful creations to share and speak about... I was thinking that it also might be fun to share our favorite piece of fabric that we are afraid to cut into. (maybe we will get inspired to use it!)

8:00ish We all go home, inspired and glad that we came!

A little bird told me today that there are some "Practical Guide to Patchwork" books in town (at Piece by Piece Fabrics) from our own (OK, from Portland) Elizabeth Hartman (of Oh Fransson! fame). It looks pretty cool. I might need to add this one to my library.

See you all soon!
