October 2012 Did you Know November is When We Plan Our Year?
Our next meeting is going to be really important! We will be planning out what we want to do for the next year. We want all of you to come, bring a friend (or two) and lots of ideas about what YOU want to do for our meetings over the next year. I am brainstorming a list myself and so far I am thinking about what kinds of fun things we can do. I plan to pick the ones I am most interested in and do some online research for good ideas, free modern block patterns, etc. I hope everyone does the same so we will have tons of great ideas to choose from! I spent just an hour or two google-ing Modern+some of the terms below and found all kinds of great things. Bring printouts of things you like, pictures, etc. so we can make some solid decisions on November 17th!
So far this is my list:
Random swap, some guilds do one like this every month:
1)Make something that you would like to receive.
2) Put it in brown paper sack 3 )Bring it to the meeting, set it on the swap pile.
4) When it is your turn, pick, unwrap, and have great joy!
