Welcome everyone and Merry Christmas!
I want to thank you for your support while getting our new sister group, Quilting A-Z off the ground! I am amazed at your generosity in helping to organize all the activities that will be starting in January and all the wonderful ideas that you are contributing! Thank you!
There has been a little confusion about our groups. Both are separate groups but we share the same blog that supports our activities. Stash_Quilters will continue to have activities, but now we can share with another group, Quilting A-Z, to allow others to join in. With the blog, all activities are available to both groups with just a click of your mouse.
There is a lot to choose from this coming year! We have 2 swaps that will be starting in January and will be hosted by Sharon V. You can email her at SwapwithSharon@hotmail.com to sign up for the Charm and Noodle Swap and for more information.
We have a Christmas Project, a tree skirt, in progress. If you need more info or want the pattern, email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org .
There is also the LBS (Leftover Binding Strip) Challenge. Remember, you have to use your binding only to make your project. Info is posted at the blog and on both group sites. Remember, we will vote on the projects in June and the winner will be on the front page.
Another challenge that starts in January is the Challenge Quilt, Two x Two. The directions will be posted every other month.
ADULT QUILT ADD: Remember to post all of your UFOs so that we can share our finishes together! You can post to either the group or blog. We are here to encourage each other!
BLOCK OF THE MONTH: Terry is in the process of setting up a BOM for this coming year. Not sure what the theme is yet, but it sounds like fun! Be sure to sign up and follow along!
The following activities are still open. If you are interested in hostessing one of these, please let me know:
LOTTERY BLOCKS: We are looking for a hostess to help start this. Everyone makes the same block, and we will have a drawing every other month, and the winner takes all.
SEWN SWAPS, MYSTERY QUILTS, AND BOMS: We have plenty of room for more swaps and BOMs, mysteries and other goodies. If you have an idea, please let me know and we can get it set up! We want to have a good selection to choose from and we are looking for hostesses!
RETREATS: Anyone interested in being in charge of retreats?
Gentle reminder: You are under no obligation to do every activity available, unless you really want to. We just want to have a good selection for everyone to choose from.
Thank you for making this a great group of friends and quilters!
