December Program - 'Our Founding Mothers'

Founding Mothers‘Our Founding Mothers’ will be presented at our December meeting with Maxine Tamlin moderating this wonderfully informative program about the founding of our guild. Charter members will provide insight and untold history of the early years of LNCQ. Come hear the background stories (these were never found in the minutes!), funny moments and how LNCQ went from an idea of a small group of quilters to the exciting guild it is today.

Silent AuctionWe ask anyone wishing to bring items for the silent auction, to bring them between 5:30pm – 6:00pm to the lobby tables. Handmade Christmas decorations are also sought for the auction, bring one or bring many. This is a great time to pick up that last minute gift before the holidays! Please see Shirley Christian with your items.

Iris QuiltIris QuiltThe centerpiece of our Silent Auction will be a pair of twin sized purple Iris quilts. They are handmade, stylish and oh so beautiful! Bids can be made on just one quilt or on both quilts. There will be a minimum bid established for each of the quilts. Bring your checkbook or cash. Some lucky person(s) will win the auction bid and take these beauties home.

What can I say? The Retreat takes a long time to plan and your co-chairs have been very busy bees putting together a schedule, contacting folks and gathering prizes for a great retreat.

Only guild members can sign up to go to our Cheyenne Retreat. You have a very small but super important item to do ASAP, fill out your LNCQ membership renewal and turn it in by December 31st!!

We will be checking to make sure everyone who signs up for the retreat is indeed a member. By having your membership renewed before the February meeting, you name will already be on the membership roster, making our job so much easier. That means we will have more time to devote to the fun things we love to do at the Retreat, if you are on the list.
