Since this meeting is so busy with all of and catching up with each other after the summer, there will be no Show N Tell. Let’s eat, catch up and have fun!

Our own Maryann Bowman will have a trunk show of her wonderful quilts, showcasing her beautiful long arm quilting. Maryann has quilted many of our member’s quilts.
She will also do a demo on her binding technique, which she loves, and is done on a sewing machine. Members who do not like hand sewing or binding will like this.
Ways N Means
This is a great way to do some Fall cleaning in your sewing room and a great way to make room for more fabric and other things that catch your eye as well as a great way to support our Guild.
Bundle your fabric and items as neatly as possible. No magazines.
Adele Scott Workshop
We have seen the Westalee Rulers at Adele's booth at the quilt shows this year and last year. It is a full day workshop in which Adele covers 7 rulers. Many of our members have purchased the starter set of rulers or there are members that have been thinking about it and have asked about Adele's workshop. The cost of the class is $35.00 and class is limited to 15 participants. Please see Gail Goraj or Deborah Winograd for further information.
The Holiday Luncheon is catered. For those with a Secret Sister, remember her with a special gift this month.
