December 2016 Meeting Recap

The December SBAMQG meetings are always special and this month was no exception. As always, it was a night of end-of-the-year business, holiday fun, and excitement for the new year.

On the business end, we covered refreshments sign-ups, name buttons, and lost and found items. We teased an upcoming bag workshop and presented our 2017 QuiltCon East charity quilt top:

We were reminded of a couple important dates. Membership dues must be paid by the January meeting if you want to stay on the MQG roster and our teacups challenge quilt tops are due by the January meeting as well. C’mon everyone – let’s put together another awesome exhibit to show off our modern quilts!

For holiday fun, we feasted on a delicious potluck and had a holiday quilt raffle. Congrats to Ruby Dosen for winning a one-of-a-kind Pam Rocco original, “The Holidays According to Pam Rocco.” We also played a very spirited game of “Swap the Quilt Book.”

Excitement for the new year focused mostly on our election of new officers. Our new board for 2017 consists of:

President – Chelsea Hard; Vice Presidents – Barbara Cuseo and Carolyn Irish; Treasurer – Gabrielle Robles; Secretary – Pat Goulet. What a great group of ladies!

Sew and tell had a few challenge finishes from Isabelle, Karen, and Mickey:
