Halloween is almost here so don’t let the ghosts and goblins scare you away from our November meeting. We’ll be having a “hauntingly” good time sharing everyone’s challenge results! Please bring your STEP-UP to a Higher Level of Excellence items and/or your Monogram Paint Chip Challenge project to this meeting. Please tell us your story of how you have improved your quilting skills, or overcame a particular obstacle with the Step Up Challenge. Be sure to also bring the paint chips with the color names that start with the same first letter as your 3-letter monogram to have those colors compared to your resulting project. I had lots of fun doing this challenge and hope you did too.
We will also have regular Sew N Share, so if you didn’t participate in the two challenges, you can still bring in any completed quilts or projects that you would like to share with the club. I suspect we’re going to have a wonderful quilt show of an evening. Encourage your friends to come see the show.

Also, the people from Quilters Giftshop (also do the Quilters Travel Guide) will be at the meeting with some of the many items they have to offer for sale, so bring your gift buying list and your cash or plastic and get an early start on the holidays, or other gift buying occasions.

As you know, Judy Visalli, Janet Flick or Chris Magan may have called you to consider volunteering for one of the board positions. If you have done so, thank you so very much. We will be voting for the proposed 2013 executive board at this meeting. Only paid members may vote. The official installation of new officers will occur as the first order of business at the Jan. 2013 meeting.

A reminder about our Christmas Party on Dec. 3rd. We will be meeting at our usual place, Gabby’s Diner, and dinner will be $8.00 - PWQ members only. Your money HAS to be paid by this meeting, Nov 5, in order to attend the Christmas dinner. (The balance of the dinner costs will be paid by the PWQ treasury.) If you wish to participate in the gift exchange (voluntary participation) it is a table runner kit, made by you from your stash. Lots of free table runner patterns are available on the internet, or you can make your own pattern or purchase a pattern. Be sure to follow all copyright restrictions when obtaining a pattern.

______ name tag

______ In house drawing funds
