Mark December 13 on your calendars.  Empire Quilters will be celebrating the Holidays with our own Winter Solstice celebration. 

We will once again have a Chinese auction of baskets donated by our members.  We need volunteers to bring in baskets/bags filled with goodies of their choice.  Baskets can range from chocolate to sewing supplies, to gift cards to wine to food to anything you can imagine.  Please be generous and imaginative and bring your baskets to the meeting by 12 to 12:15 latest.  We want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to put raffle tickets in the basket (s) of your choice.   Remember that most of our members ride public transportation so that the baskets should be somewhat portable.  If you feel lucky, and you think you have a chance to win more than one basket, you might try bringing a suitcase to carry home your winnings!  We will also be auctioning 4 to 8 quilts that have been donated by our members and quilted by Janice Ewing.  The proceeds from all of these will go to the Show.

To make this happen we need volunteers to donate the baskets as well as to sell tickets.  Please contact Kitty Squire to donate baskets or volunteer.

In addition, please bring seasonal baked goods to share with your fellow members.  The Guild will supply sodas.

As usual, the focus of the meeting will be on the Service Committee and our holiday donations.  There is more on that elsewhere in the newsletter.
