Jane started the meeting with a few announcements.

These included:

  • Committee members will be needed in April, the majority of the current committee will have to step down then.
  • The finally tally for the Christmas sale was €1725!
  • Patchwork Plus will be having a sale January 23rd and 24th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

We set up a few special tables this meeting as well.

The first was our Back to Basics table:

It was an opportunity for newer patchworkers to get a closer look at some of the tools that can make patchwork easier.

We also had our Swap Your Stash Table:

This will be in our next few meetings, and is an opportunity for you to rejuvenize your scrap stash!  Just bring a 3 L bag of scraps.  Bring a bag, take a bag.  Scraps should be at least 5 inches square.

Erin then made a presentation for the final block of the Block of the Month, the Wheel of Fortune!
