November E-Blast

Things to be ready for in November:

Stay-Treat is Saturday and Sunday, November 11-12, at the fire hall. Doors will open at 9 a.m. for set-up.

For those who are taking the Embellished Embroidery class with Susie Bachelor, the class starts at 9:30. Remember to bring your supplies and background fabric with the pattern already traced and ready to go. A **lot** of people signed up for the class, so If you plan to remain afterward for the rest of Stay-Treat, please leave your sewing supplies in your vehicle until class is over.

It’s almost time! We’ll be drawing for the winner of this year’s raffle quilt at the November meeting – there’s still time (and need) to sell tickets! Be sure to bring your sold ticket stubs to Irene at the meeting.

This Month’s Activity – There’s still time to sign up for the Block Exchange – groups of 5 or 6 will chose a theme for star blocks. Each month one of the participants will bring a star for the rest of the members of their group (all the same block). Contact Sandra H right away if you want to play – she needs time to put the groups together!

If your #3 is dependent on getting #2 done, just do #2 and switch the numbers. It’s okay. Nobody’s going to judge – the point is to make progress!
