Door Prizes

Karol won the Quilty Basket and will refill and bring it to the next meeting.

Jane led the Holiday Gift Exchange. Members brought their handmade gifts in unmarked paper bags. Members then formed a circle around the room and held a bag. As Jane read the "Night Before Christmas" members passed their bags to the left or right whenever those words were read. When the story was finished, you opened the gift you were still holding.

Some of the lovely and creative makes received.

The board gave gifts of fat quarters and candy canes. The basket was passed around and members picked one out.
