December 2016 Meeting Recap

Meeting Date: Thursday, December 15th, 2016
Location: Dabble & Stitch

Thanks to everyone attending our December meeting! We had our holiday meeting at Dabble & Stitch. Thank you so much for hosting us. If you've never been to Dabble & Stitch, you definitely want to stop by. Its a great shop owned by husband and wife duo Daniel and Katie. You can find the latest modern fabrics as well as take classes and use their sewing lounge.  If you can't make it to their store they also have a Etsy shop.

We had a little fun by wearing our holiday sweaters while enjoying all the treats brought by everyone.

The highlight of the meeting was our white elephant swap. Lots of laughs and gifts were exchanged by all.

Then it was time for show and tell.
