Friday, Dec. 2 - Our Holiday Potluck! Crystal Quilters and Crystal Quilters Too. At Noon. Location has changed! Instead of meeting at Lorrie Maras' house, we will now meet at our usual meeting place - the clubhouse at Mountain Villa Mobile Home Park, 1099 Mountain Villa Dr. (just south of the Summit Student Center), Enumclaw. The meeting will be on the upper level. Lorrie will provide all the paper products (plates, napkins, etc.). Please bring a dish to share, along with any serving utensils needed for it. Bring a donation for the Food Bank and 1/2 yard of fabric (or 2 fat quarters) in a brown paper bag for an exchange. The drawings for the Raffle Quilt and the raffle baskets from the quilt show will also be done. Don't forget your Show and Tell items!
Annual Dues are due by January 1, 2012. Still a bargain at $15! You may pay at the Holiday Potluck if you wish.
Friday, Jan. 6 - Crystal Quilters meeting at 1:00 p.m. at the Mountain Villa Mobile Home Park clubhouse, 1099 Mountain Villa Dr., Enumclaw, on the upper level. 11:30 a.m. meet for lunch - location TBD. Bring the block of your choice for the start of your Pet Robin, our Block-of-the-Month for 2012.

We will be learning how to make crumb blocks using the leftover scraps from the quilt show. This will also be a potluck, with soup provided. Please bring your own bowl and spoon and you can bring a dish to share. Come for the whole day, or for just part of the day. You can also bring your own project to work on, volunteer to iron or square up blocks or just come to learn/watch and egg us on to use up those scraps! Please bring your usual sewing kit, including fabric scissors.
