 Join us for our December Holiday Celebration!

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 stop and pick-up on the way.  Since there are those who are still not comfortable about dining from an open buffet, we thought this was the best way to keep everyone safe plus allow more time for our meeting festivities.  Nathlia (Hospitality) 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.  This will be done by playing a short Holiday game to rotate the gifts around the table.  Please bring a bagged or wrapped small gift around $10 but not exceeding $15.  The gift must be new and unused.  Sewing notions would make ideal gifts and are things that everyone can use!  The item can be something practical or unique, fun or creative. 

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Pins (straight, silk, fine, applique etc) or Needles (hand or machine)
  • Scissors or Clippers
  • Aurifil Thread (anything in a neutral color)
  • Seam Ripper, Rotary Cutter, Binding Clips, Ruler, Pin Holders, etc.
  • Storage Container for threads or fabric
  • Gift certificate from a local quilt store
  • Wrap a ribbon around a coordinating set of Fat Quarters

The list is endless!

With the Quilt Show coming in June of next year, 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.

 Other festivities will include:

  • Installation of New Officers
  • Show 'n Tell Extravaganza
  • UFO Prize Winners

We hope that you can join us as we celebrate another year of friendships, love, and in giving to others.

Thank you for your continued support of ACQ this past year!
