Birthday Party Wrap Up!

October Meeting:  Happy Third Birthday to Us!

(Thanks Barb (See her blog here!) for taking notes!!)

Prior to the feast and festivities, we did address some business.

The weekend of November 2 is a busy one…
·         The sewing retreat at the Keller Williams Real Estate office on East Wilson Bridge Road is November 2. Thanks to Kathy F for the beautiful space and Kathy G and June for coordinating! There will be demos, prizes, and lunch as well as a lovely space to sew in with your friends for a day. Who could ask for more? $5 will save you a seat and table to spread out.

·         Joanna let us know that November 1 and 2 Dabble & Stitch in Clintonville will be celebrating with 20-50% off fabric. Other merchandise will be on sale as well. Check it out!

·         And on November 2 is the 25th Annual Holly-Day Bazaar as the Westerville Community UCC on County Line Road in Westerville. Our very own Nancy is co-chair. This bazaar is a great one with a raffle, hand crafted items and baked goods. Oh and I would be remiss for not mentioning that Santa will be there from 10:00-1:00 (his busy season is about to begin so it’s great that they got him early for those photos). Admission is $2 and includes a raffle ticket.

Speaking of Santa, Jaclyn is coordinating our guild’s Secret Santa exchange. Everyone that was interested submitted their name, email address, fabric likes/don’t likes all that kind of stuff. Then we were paired up with a partner. In December a sewing-related gift valued at $12 will be exchanged.

We’re under new management starting next month! We’ll have Quint-chairs: Ann, Jaclyn, Joanna, Jana, and Nicole all stepped up to the plate to lead us into our 4th year as a guild. Woo hoo!

And thanks too to Dana, Abbe, and Stacey for being our leaders for the past two years. Job well done!

Be sure to mark your calendars for our November meeting. We’re having a guest speaker.  It should be fun.
See you all next month!
