December 2021 Meeting

Our December meeting proved to be a fun gathering 
as we spent our evening shopping, sharing quilts, and celebrating the season together.

Members created an array of beautiful placemats 
that will be donated to Meals on Wheels.  
The people who receive them 
get very excited and truly enjoy this special gift.  
Thank you, Donna C. for organizing this project.

A Silent Auction to benefit The New England Quilt Museum
was held with beautiful handmade items. 
Members had fun bidding on various gifts,  
wreaths, jams and jellies, homemade cookies, 
quilted items, knitted and crocheted items and more!
We have very crafty members!
