Meeting Details for January 15, 2015

Our next meeting is on January 15, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Des Moines Community Center, 134 6th Street, WDM (in Valley Junction) [click for map]. 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.

Activity:  Garage Sale Swap

Everyone bring fabrics & supplies in baggies, marked with garage sale prices and your name. During the meeting, we will spread everything out and go shopping. Anything you want to buy, you will find the member and exchange money or, as in the past, swapping other comparable items is A-OK!

There will also be a free section for stuff you just don't want anymore. Don’t worry about marking those.

Remember to bring cash to the meeting so you can buy some new stuff!

Auction Quilt Project

We will also be preparing for a new group project! As part of the DMAQG, our small group will contribute to the August Charity Auction with a group-made quilt!  Please scour your files and favorite websites for free/readily available block patterns that would work well for a group project. The steering committee has already been discussing some ideas, so we’ll bring those, combine & evaluate all the options, take a vote and discuss the details such as color scheme and fabric choices.

The meeting is next week already, so see you soon!
