Holiday Party Time!

Our annual holiday party was again in a member's home, and we are extremely grateful to our hostess, Ardie. The 18 members who attended shared conversation, food, gift-swapping, fun and laughter.
Back, L-R: Ardie, Beth, Susan, Lynn, Bette, Selina, Frances, Char, Victoria
Middle, L-R: Gwen, Jodie, Joey, Brenda, Dee, Linda
Front: Kay, Jane, Cindy
Everyone brought a treat to share, so food was abundant! Ardie was our smiling hostess.

 Some quilters enjoyed a special drink.

Gifts ($10-$15) were wrapped and ready for choosing and stealing! The most popular stolen items were the book Denise Schmidt Quiltstwo charm packs of Authentic fabric collection by Sweetwater for Moda, and a $15 gift card to Sharky's Vac 'n Sew.

Everyone enjoyed seeing Ardie's sewing room with it's lovely Bernina 750QE, Martelli cutting table, and new Handi Quilter Avanté longarm. Ardie also showed her clever idea for making a design wall in a room with sloped ceilings.

Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild is a chapter of the nicest people and best quilters you'll find! We wish you all very happy holidays!

See you next year...

Monday, January 8 is our regular meeting. The program is "Is This Modern?" Members, please bring quilts you want to know how to "modernize." And, November challenge participants bring your challenge quilts.

 January 13 is our monthly Saturday Sew-In.
