November 2017 Meeting Recap

2018 Board- After a very close vote, Chelsa Knight Barton will be our 2018 Swaps and Challenges Chair. We still need a new Fundraising Chair to continue to have fun events next year.
New Location- We tried out the Christmas Goose and everyone seemed happy to be back! We are going to continue to have our meetings there. We are also going to help them purchase chairs so that there will be no need to have everyone bring there own anymore.

December Meeting date- The December meeting/Holiday Party will be held on December 20. It will be a potluck (finger foods/desserts only). We will be having Show and Tell, our Fat Quarter Swap, and socializing!

New dues amount- Membership dues are being raised for the 2018 year. The new cost is $40 if you renew/join by December 31, or $45 starting January 1. The main reason for the increase is because we now have to pay for our meeting space each month. We also want to make it clear that we have to pay the National MQG a significant portion of the dues we collect. We don’t keep it all. We are currently taking renewals for 2018. The renewal form can be found by clicking here.

Charity blocks-

#quiltsforvegas

In the aftermath of the Strip shooting, there have been a ton of people reaching out asking how they can help. We have put together a quilt drive for #quiltsforvegas.  We are requesting completed quilts, quilt tops, blocks, binding, backing, batting (or anything else you can think of!).
All the information for blocks and everything else can be found on our website: https://lasvegasmqg.wordpress.com/quiltsforvegas/

Holiday swap- For our December meeting we will be having a fabric swap! What you do is buy a 2 yard piece of fabric and cut it into 8 fat quarters. Bring them to the meeting and we will swap them there! There are two categories- Solids and Low Volume. For the Low Volume category we are looking for Whisper Voice (See the link below for what that means) fabric that reads white. These are two separate swaps and you can participate in one or both. All fabrics must be quilt shop quality, and quilting cottons. Sorry, no linens or home dec fabrics.

Jen of Heritage Threads has information about what low volume means.

We still have a our Project Bags available for sale! They measure approximately 11×16 inches and they have a zipper at the top. The back of the project bag is plain white. They are available for $15 each, or 2 for $25. Cash or checks only, please.
