The London Friendship Quilters' Guild is a non-profit organization whose aims are to promote an appreciation for the art and craftsmanship of patchwork and quilting; provide educational opportunities in the art of quilting; and provide a forum for friendly exchange of ideas and information.
It was a relaxed chaos; the meeting began with guild announcements,
soon moving on to a Row Robin show and tell,
a buying feeding frenzy at the Rummage Sale!
at which a total of $257.60 was raised for our Outreach program! Good job, ladies!
We then moved on to more Show and Share, door prizes, and quilt bingo!
"I never win anything" Cynthia N. won one of the 3 scrap strips' bundles!
