With all of our Bees this year, we will also have the Finishing Bee. Bethany is in charge of this motivating Bee and it will be a great time. To participate in the Finishing Bee this year, you need to remember to bring a fat quarter of fabric (good quality, quilt shop fabric) and also your list of 10 projects you would like to finish this year to our February 5th meeting. Bethany has details of what and how you can list your projects if you have any questions.
The number 4 was drawn out for January's project which means you need to work on and complete the project you listed on your list as #4 for February's meeting. If you finish it, bring it to Sew and Tell and enter your name into the drawing. If you do not finish it, bring an additional fat quarter to contribute to the cute little basket.

Here is the little basket of bliss. Soon it will be full of fat quarters, since EVERYONE that wants to participate must contribute one fat quarter to begin the year. Then it will slowly fill up as the months go by and we can't quite finish the project for that month. But that is okay. Someone gets to win the basket of fat quarters at some time and it could be you!

If this sounds confusing, come to February's guild meeting and talk to Bethany. She will answer all your questions and get you ready to finish a few of those projects that were started a few years ago with good intentions of finishing.

Well ladies, there you have it. We are in for a great year of making quilts and being social! Our first guild meeting is on January 8th at 7:00 pm in the basement of the Am Bank Building on 100 South.
Please remember to bring your $25 annual due fee if you would like to become or remain a member. If not, the charge is $5.00 per meeting, but since there are so many perks to being a member of our guild, just bring the 25 dollars. Sherron has a special gift for those of you that bring your dues to the January meeting. Natalia is the secretary for this new year, so she will be the one collecting dues.
See you all on Thursday night!
