Happy New Year to Everyone!
Mary's e-mail requesting newsletter information brought me back to reality with a thump! I was enjoying the very randomness of the holidays with no schedules and no meetings. A bit of work and a bit of sewing and lots of down time. I hope all of you have enjoyed the Christmas time and your 2011 is off to a good start.
I would like to thank Irene for having us all over for tea, it was fun. I delayed my trip so I could make it this year, glad I did.
We are off to an exciting start with our meeting in the new building and new ideas. Should I put a notice with directions at the former meeting place in case we can't retrain our vehicles to go to the new building on Donaldson? The building has been nice and warm and there has been no trouble with snow removal, so far so good.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at 7 on the 11th.
I would like to challenge everyone to bring a UFO to the first meeting. We will record each of them and then challenge ourselves to finish them for our quilt show this year. We can have a special section in the show for these UFOs and rewards.

Focus on Fibre Building

We have the building booked for Tuesdays so how about we kick the new year off with a work party. Worker bees are needed for a bit of painting and to lay the flooring that we have so far. Then it will be ready for our first meeting on the 11th. We could use 5 or 6 people for this bee. Please RSVP to Rae or Mary.

Gallery 2

I plan my downtown shopping around them, they average about 15 to 20 minutes and the cost is only $5.00. The same play is held over the 3 days. The are called Brown Baf cus they are held during lunch and you can bring you lunch and watch the play while you eat. There is coffee and tea to purchase. The main front door of the building will be open for the plays.
