Jane - Ice Breaker

With the winter holidays around the corner, our December meeting will be the holiday party and Sew Day groups can also plan a celebration and gift exchange if they would like. Each group should decide on plans and share with Jane or Ashley so it can be shared in newsletter.
For the December Guild Meeting bring a handmade item that fits in a brown paper lunch bag. Some ideas generated during the icebreaker were: pin cushions, mug rugs, zipper pouches, fabric postcard, ornaments, oven mitts, jewelry, sunglass case, thread catcher, nametag, placemats, etc.
