Crystal Quilters' Calendar - January 2015

Friday, January 9 - 11:30 am.  Lunch will be at The Mint this month.  1608 Cole Street, Enumclaw.
1:00 pm - General Guild meeting at the Buckley Fire Station, 611 S. Division St., Buckley. 

* If you haven't paid yet, membership dues are due at the January meeting.

* We will have the election of our new officers.

* Please bring 2 identical 5 3/4 inch squares of fabric.  Both fabric squares should have an X marked corner to corner on the wrong side of the fabric.  The color of fabric should start with the same letter as your first name - in other words, Carol would bring a Cherry red fabric or a Creamy White or even Coffee-with-cream tan fabric.  Mona would bring a Mink brown fabric, Mouse grey fabric or Marvelous purple.  Get creative!  (and if you get stumped, read the names of the colors in your box of Crayola crayons!)  We will be making a quilt together with these fabrics.  If possible, please bring a rotary cutter and small cutting mat.  

* We will have the drawing for the Guild Raffle Quilt.

Friday, January 16 - 1:00 pm - Guild Workshop at the Buckley Fire Station, 611 S. Division St., Buckley.  This month's workshop will be on finishing up the Blocks of the Month from 2014, working on "our" quilt using the squares we brought to the Jan 9th meeting, or working on your own project.
