Happy New Year to Everyone!
Mary's e-mail requesting newsletter information brought me back to reality with a thump! I was enjoying the very randomness of the holidays with no schedules and no meetings. A bit of work and a bit of sewing and lots of down time. I hope all of you have enjoyed the Christmas time and your 2011 is off to a good start.
I would like to thank Irene for having us all over for tea, it was fun. I delayed my trip so I could make it this year, glad I did.
We are off to an exciting start with our meeting in the new building and new ideas. Should I put a notice with directions at the former meeting place in case we can't retrain our vehicles to go to the new building on Donaldson? The building has been nice and warm and there has been no trouble with snow removal, so far so good.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at 7 on the 11th.
I would like to challenge everyone to bring a UFO to the first meeting. We will record each of them and then challenge ourselves to finish them for our quilt show this year. We can have a special section in the show for these UFOs and rewards.
Focus on Fibre Building
We have the building booked for Tuesdays so how about we kick the new year off with a work party. Worker bees are needed for a bit of painting and to lay the flooring that we have so far. Then it will be ready for our first meeting on the 11th. We could use 5 or 6 people for this bee. Please RSVP to Rae or Mary.

is having Brown Bag Theatre again, dates are January 20th, 21st, and 22nd. These short plays are awesome, I have taken the time to see most of them. I plan my downtown shopping around them, they average about 15 to 20 minutes and the cost is only $5.00. The same play is held over the 3 days. The are called Brown Baf cus they are held during lunch and you can bring you lunch and watch the play while you eat. There is coffee and tea to purchase.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
The Fall season seems to have flown by, here we are near the end of the year with the snow on the ground and the Christmas season beginning. American Thanksgiving always starts the flurry of advertising for Christmas which makes it feel closer.
Our Christmas party will be on Dec. 7th, Tuesday evening. It will begin with dinner at the Honey Dew restaurant at 5:30 p.m. We will be ordering individually off the menu as we were a few short of the 25 in order to have the buffet. After dinner we will move the party over to the hall for a silent auction, games, coffee and tea. Proceeds from the silent auction will go to the Community Hamper Fund.
So bring anything from your sewing room that you are finished with and you think someone else could use for the silent auction.
If any of you are inspired to bring some sweets for dessert that would be nice to have with our coffee.
Bring three fat quarters for a fat quarter exchange and three (more) fat quarters if you want to buy into the dice game. Stephanie has another game that you can play for free.
A fun way to end off 2010 so make sure you put it on your calandar, see you there!
If you have any requests for meeting activities and/or projects for our in-guild days then make sure you let me know so we can include it in our plans for next year.
Happy New Year,
Business Meeting - Tuesday, December 7, 5:30 p.m. at Honey Dew restaurant followed by a party at the Slavonic Hall.
In-Guild Day - no in-guild in December

Corrections to the Pattern for the Guild Name Label: Sunflower Dresden Plate
When you became a paid member of the guild, the directions and pattern for the Sunflower Dresden Plate guild Name Label were handed out to you.
Unfortunately the pattern that was scanned became reduced in size when it was printed. The pattern for the petal (Template A) should be 1 3/4" total height and 1 3/4" wide at the top edge. The centre for the Dresden Plate can be left as is or just increased by 1/8" all around.
A new page will soon be loaded on the blog with the complete instructions.
