November 2016 Meeting of the TVMQG

We had a wonderful November meeting.

Here're some highlights from the Show and Tell.  We love seeing what everyone has been doing.

First up, Jane asked for advice on how to clean sticky residue from her irons' soleplate.  Collen knew the answer, Lemon Essential Oil.  She said, just the cheap stuff works great!

Linda shared the two table runners she made, same pattern, what a difference!

Sue created a Happy, and very large mug rug for her son and she showed off the new shopping bags that she's writing a pattern for.

Next, we had a guest.  Cammie is Madeline's' daughter.  She shared an embroidered quilt top featuring Tigger, then her first quilt block, and last but not least, her first finished quilt.  Great job, Cammie.

Nancy had two great quilt tops to show off, and the purse she created from her "practice" FMQ samples.

Maritza is taking classes in Heirloom Sewing.  She showed  one of the examples she's created.

Jan showed the two Queen-size pillow shams she made for a customer.

Angelica showed the handmade bag she was gifted and the adorable Halloween wall hanging she made.

Collen showed us the English Paper-Piecing project she's working on and a mug rug made from 1" squares!  The tiny pompoms look a lot like a zipper!

We have a Sit and Sew scheduled for December 3rd at Natalie's' home'

Our December meeting will be a Christmas party at Maritza's home.  Please bring finger foods, appetizers and desserts.  We will also be exchanging zipper pouches.  Please put the zipper pouch you bring to exchange in a brown paper lunch bag.  The December meeting will mark the end of our first year as a MGQ!

In January we will change meeting locations.  The new venue is Primitive Gatherings in Murrieta.  The address is 26855 Jefferson Ave D, and the cross street is Date Street.  The meeting time will remain the 3rd Thursday at 6:30pm.

The Nomination Committee presented the nominations for next year.

President - Jan
Vice-President - Jessica
Secretary - Maritza
Treasurer - Collen
Social Media - Natalie

And Angelica volunteered to help anyway she can.

Jan's presentation was about how to start a blog.  Blogging and quilting really do go together.

Hope to see everyone at our December meeting.  Maritza's address will be in the newsletter email.

May your' bobbins always be full,
