SNEAK PREVIEW & Exciting Opportunity for YOU!

The Executive Committee met last night to finalize plans for the 2010/2011 year for the London Friendship Quilt Guild. Welcome to all the new members. They are an enthusiastic bunch and hope to make this another exciting year for the Quilt guild.

We have a wonderful opportunity for our members! One person will be the Welcome Hostess each month to greet everyone at the door and make sure that newcomers know where to go. September is taken care of and we'll be needing volunteers for each month. Email which month you would like to reserve for youself :-). The hostess will receive a free draw ticket for one of the FQ's of the month.

Speaking of draw prizes!!!....here's a sneak preview of the Fat Quarters that will be featured at the September meeting.

This year, the big draw prize will be a bag of goodies instead of a basket. Look at the wonderful items inside the September bag. You will want to purchase lots of tickets to win these wonderful charm packs and thread!!

Stay tuned for details of the first meeting which will be posted at the end of next week. The upcoming shows and speakers will also be updated at that time.

Enjoy the last week of summer!
