Join us this month for a fun time to learn something new at the meeting. We are having what we fondly call “Quilter’s College.” We have 4 of our own guild members that will demonstrate a project or technique. We will have new projects to learn as well as some new techniques to try. Our program is as follows:
Debbie Cowles – a project using fabric selvages
Kathy Greene – how to make quick bias binding strips
Cheryl Nieman – tells all about fusibles
Peggy Vachon – English paper piecing
BACK TO SCHOOL TIME FOR QUILTERs???

The Holiday Party is Right around the Corner!!
The annual AVQA Holiday Party will be on December 10, 2015 at Green House Café in Lancaster. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the party starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are just $20.00 and will be on sale at the November guild meeting. No tickets will be sold after the November meeting. There are a limited number of tickets so get yours soon! Raffle baskets will be available at the November meetings in an effort to raise funds to offset the cost of the holiday party. The Bits & Pieces Friendship Circle is planning a fun and festive evening and everyone in attendance will get a prize!
