Happy Holidays to all as we celebrate families, friends and the end of 2018.

As we end this year and prepare to start a new year in just a few weeks, it’s fun to reflect on what we accomplished in the past year and plan for the next:

Very successful Quilt Show with over 900 guests attending..

Opportunity Quilt raffle ticket sales of over $8,000.

Patriotic Quilts and Quilts to Share donated approximately 90 quilts and 168 quilted items to local charities. Good job!!!

Again if you have any quilted (or otherwise) items to donate to the Country Store, remember do it! Have you donated your yard of fabric to the Country Store?

Please join us at our Holiday Social on December 17 with some finger food to share.

If you want to donate to the Food Bank, make your check payable to Contra Costa Food Bank.

There will be envelopes and a box at the December meeting. This is in addition to the Guild’s donation.

Remember this newsletter is for December and January combined. No newsletter in January. We will have Show and Tell at the December meeting but blocks (exchange and BOM) are due in January.

We function better when we all pitch in. If you would like to help in some way, please contact a board member or me. Guild things are going smoothly (but we can always use volunteers) and hopefully we’ll see you at the December social.
