Guild Business

We have changed our event policies and now require that guild members pay in full when signing up to attend.
The current retreat cost is as follows (facility + processing fees):
Entire weekend = $125
One night = $65
One day = $35
The March Retreat will be a great opportunity to work on all of those new ideas you have from QuiltCon! Please visit the Wimberley Quilt Ranch website for details about the facility or email any questions to our Vice President of Events, Christine Smartt.
Future retreat dates are scheduled for August 2-4 & November 8-10.

-QuiltCon quilt tops are completed and you can see them at the meeting. They will be donated to the Austin Children's Shelter.

-We'll announce a De-stash Swap to be held at the February meeting as well as a new charity quilt project.

Meeting Events
- Show and Tell - did you work on projects over the holidays or receive exciting notions, fabrics or books as holiday gifts? Bring them in and show us!

- Madrona Road Challenge: We'll discuss the challenge and distribute fat eighths to anyone that wants to participate.

- And we have Door Prizes to give away!
