BRING YOUR OWN BAGGED DINNER AND GUEST SPEAKER, ELLEN PALMER
Celebrate the Holidays and the end of another year at our December dinner and Holiday Social. This event will be held in person at the church as well as live-streamed for those who are unable to attend in person.
We will begin the evening with a B.Y.O.B dinner. Everyone will bring their own meal, which can be something from home or something that you pick-up on the way. ACQ Hospitality Committee will provide drinks and dessert. Plates, napkins, cups, etc. will also be available.
To celebrate the season of giving, we will be also be having a small gift exchange while seated at our tables by playing a short Holiday game to rotate the gifts around the table (see event details for suggestions).
With the Quilt Show coming in June of 2023, we have scheduled Ellen Palmer, a CQC Quilt Judge, to give a short lecture on what judges are looking for and the protocol that they follow when judging a quilt. This will be positive in nature and will give you information to help you grow and improve your quilting.
