The Barn in Mariemont
Co-Presidents Janine Keaton and Ellen Berninger presiding
Happy Holidays from the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild! Many surprises were in store at this meeting! The much anticipated zipper pouch swap, show and tell and celebrating over delicious snacks and drinks.
Ice Breaker: What will you be sewing during the Holidays?
We received a wide range of answers to the ice breaker question! They included:
· Devoting time to a 10 year old UFO!
· Traveling anywhere from Texas to visit family, to trekking across Europe for 2 weeks.
· Sewing gifts for others
· Working on the lovely CMQG charity quilt for QuiltCon
· Baby Booties
· Taking a relaxing break
Don’t forget that your CMQG membership fees are due in January. Membership cost is $40 for the year. In addition our elected President, Abby, passed around sign-up sheets for snacks, set up and tear down and bee blocks!
