December 12th, 2013 Meeting


Our December meeting was a fun and inspirational evening.  We started the meeting with the "Placemat Colour Challenge".  Each placemat was displayed along with the greeting card that was the colour inspiration for the placemat.  The guild members voted for the placemat that they felt most closely followed the colour scheme of the greeting card.  The first place winner was Megan R.. Second place winner was Lorna M.  There was a 3 way tie for 3rd place- the 3rd place winners were Tiny C, Cathy S and Edith W.

A total of 112 placemats were donated to Meals on Wheels.  Laura D. from Meals on Wheels accepted the placemats. She told us about how much their clients appreciated receiving the placemats along with their meal on Christmas Day

After a break that included some great Christmas goodies and some retail therapy, we had the LFQG version of “The Price is Right”.  Our hosts for the game were Jingle and Belle (Barb A and Rose B).  The “contestants” gave their guess on the price of a quilting item.  The contestant with the closest price without going over won the prize.   The commentary from Jingle and Belle was hilarious.  The “Price is Right” was a very fun part of the evening.

at
7.00 PM
at St George's Church on Dundas St.
 
Come and join us for an evening of friendship, giving, inspiration, goodies, fun and shopping!
 
We will be joined by a representative from Meals on Wheels.  We will first have voting on the placemats made for the "Colour Challenge".  After the voting has taken place the Colour Challenge Placemats and all of the other placemats made by our guild members will be given to the Meals on Wheels representative.  They will be distributed to the Meals on Wheels clients when they receive their Christmas meal.
Guild members participating in the Colour Challenge are reminded to bring their card along with their placemat, so the voters can compare the colours in the card to those in the placemat.  The card will be returned to the participating guild member after voting is finished.
