Merry Christmas, Happy December, and a few reminders:

First of all, Happy Holidays to everyone! A reminder that after January 1, the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild will become a "focused group" within the Des Moines Area Quilt Guild. Therefore, 2015 membership dues ($30) will be paid to the DMAQG (  You can download a PDF membership form on the website.

This Saturday is the Des Moines Area Quilt Guild December Tea, at the Learning Resource Center at S 35th Street and Mills Civic Pkwy in West Des Moines (close to WDM Public Library). It's free, it's fun, it starts at 9 am... and you can sign up for 2015 WORKSHOPS -- first dibs for seats in workshops taught by fabulous instructors like Jacquie Gering (of Tallgrass Prairie Studio)! 

Our next meeting is on January 15, 2015 at 6:30 at the West Des Moines Community Center at 134 6th Street, WDM (in Valley Junction). It is in the first block of 6th street, just north of Railroad Blvd and there is a good sized parking lot right next to the building. Mark your calendar-- we hope to see you there!

If you missed our November meeting, you missed a lot of fun and a lively gift swap!  Here is a group shot of everyone who participated, and what they took home with them from the swap:

back row l to r: Carol, Leila, Connie, Emily, Marny, Eva Marie, Sherry, Janeen
middle row l to r: Melissa, Emma, Amy, Doris, Crystal, Jill

Our two Junior Members organized their own holiday swap, and were extremely eager to "get to the gift" part of the evening! These talented young ladies fit right into our group!

Join us in January!

  1. Karen Macon, the incoming DMAQG president, asked me to tell you all to introduce yourselves to her if you attend the Tea on Saturday! She is eager to meet us and happy that we are joining the guild. She'll be talking for most of the meeting part (that's how you'll recognize her)...but if you can find time to walk up to her, please do! She's a great friend to know!
