    You are invited to arrive at the church starting at 6:00 PM for our annual Homemade Holiday Hootenanny! The guild will provide beverages and anyone who would like to is encouraged to bring along a snack to share - sweet or savory the choice it yours, but smallish finger foods would be best.

    After normal meeting business we will spend the evening swapping our handmade gifts White Elephant style. Remember that your gift must be handmade and fit inside a lunch sized brown paper bag (don't worry if you don't have a bag, we will have extras that you can slip your gift into when you get to the church). We also ask that you pin a little note on your gift to let the recipient know who made it.

    Big Top Quilt

    This is a complicated wedge-based pattern that

    uses foundation paper piecing, templates,

    curved piecing and giant blocks! Brigit will walk the

    participants through the pattern and explain

    some of the unusual techniques that result in

    this truly unique quilt. We will talk about how to

    use color to quiet or enliven the design with a

    demonstration of different color schemes and

    quilts that use solids and prints. Participants will

    complete one wedge in the class, giving them all

    the skills they need to complete the pattern.
