Christmas Party Reminders

Just a reminder to all of you that our Christmas Party is on Monday, December 3rd!  Looking forward to a fun evening!
Less than a week before the Christmas party girls, so here are a few reminders.
Don't forget to bring your canned goods for the pantry
Children's stocking
Ornament exchange if you wish to participate
Bring one/receive one bag if you wish to participate
Money for the 50/25/25 cash raffle
And be READY for Reindeer games.
You can begin to arrive at 5:30 and supper will be at 6:00. I see that the forecast calls for nice temperatures so we do not have to worry about any snow. Can't wait to see everyone and have a nice evening. Deanna

If you will look on the right hand column of our blog, you will see that I have added a new feature to the blog.  If you click on the photo of our Pine Needle Quilter Banner it should (hopefully!) take you to photos of our quilt show.  Once you get to the photos, you can make them larger by clicking on the picture.  If you want to view them a slide show there is a button for that as well.
I apologize to anyone if I missed pictures of quilts at the show, so if you have any pictures that you would like me to add to this album, please email them to me.
I hope to add more captions to pictures soon, in things like the Fashion Show, so please hang in there with me, it is a learning process, and I am not always a fast learner!
I hope you enjoy this new feature of the blog, and I think it will come in handy for other things as well. 
Sit back, relax and enjoy looking over our beautiful quilt show.

Bras for a Cause

Our guild was challenged to decorate/create bras to be displayed at our quilt show for Breast Cancer Awareness.  Following the quilt shows bras were displayed at local clinics and hospital to continue on "their mission".
Here are some of the fun bras that our group made:
"My Hooters"

"Autumn Harvest"

Guild members voted for their favorite bras...Sheila and Maggie display the bras that tied for guild favorites.

All bras were displayed at our quilt show.

Many of the show visitors stopped to take a peek at the bra display, and check out the information Maggie had available regarding mammograms, early breast cancer detection etc.  Thank you Maggie for heading up this great project, and to all of the ladies who participated!
