Winter Wonderland

North Parish Quilters Winter Wonderland
December 14, 2016

Winter wonderland has arrived!!!!

For our annual Holiday Tea this year we are going to try something different.  The guild this year is going to have our gala event catered.  There will be an assortment of hot foods for your dining pleasure and of course a wonderful arrangement of delicious dessert.  You will just need to bring your favorite tea cup and of course someone at the table should also bring their favorite tea pot.

We would love you to show off your favorite Holiday Quilt for our show and tell enjoyment.

Do not forget to bring some extra cash with you that night because we will have a few of our guild members vending for the night and of course let’s not forget about our Raffle Baskets. Remember this is the time to purchase any last minute gifts you may have forgotten.  It is a great time to pick up that little extra something.

A quick reminder that the meeting will start at 6:00 pm and remember this is going to be a fun evening with friends and fellow quilters celebrating the Holidays.

If you would like to help out some homeless people this year, please donate hats, mittens, scarfs, socks, any items that they might like.  We will be donating these items to the Bread of Life in Malden, Ma.  There will be a tree that we will be hanging these items on.

This is the guilds way of saying “Thank you” for all that you do, so come and enjoy the fun and festivities of the night.  It surely will be a lot of laughs.  Hope to see you there.

Yawkey Family Inn News

Happy Holidays!!! Tis The Season…..

Please bring any finished pillowcases or quilts or quilt related projects that you have to the December meeting. I will be making a drop off to Yawkey Family Inn shortly after the meeting so the children can have these items for the holidays. The Home has told me that there will be a full house for the Christmas Holiday. The quilts and pillowcases are much needed — an added treat of a Pillowcase or quilt for the children is so meaningful for them – especially at this time of the year where they are away from their support of family and friends. I thank each and every one of you who has contributed in some way to Yawkey Family Inn quilts and pillowcases. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season.
