November updates

Hope you're taking advantage of the crummy weather to cuddle up with your sewing machine and get some projects done! We'd love to have a bunch of projects at the Show and Share at our next meeting, which is December 7. Heads up, we are starting early at 6:30 for a potluck! Bring a sweet or a savory, and bring your own utensils, plates, etc. At least we won't have wasps this time!

Please also bring a contribution to Allen's "thank you" basket. I would encourage local products since they are still finding their way around our great city and island. Ideas: coffee, tea, beer, wine, tea towels, candles, or books or toys for their son (just over a year, named Felix). I will collect money towards a gift certificate towards a local restaurant if you prefer to give me cash/cheque instead of bringing an item. I'll pile it all in a basket with a card and a couple baby-sitting coupons.

At our Christmas meeting we'll be having a presentation on quilted postcards by Becky. This is will be great for getting us inspired for our first project exchange!

Last by not least, we have a sew-in at the North Nanaimo Library Nov 26 at 10:00. Address is 6250 Hammond Bay Road (not the address posted previously). Bring your project, your sewing machine, and extension cord. To reserve a spot and pay $10, email the NMQG at

Stay warm and dry this fall, and keep quilting!
