President's Notes - Joan Tozer

Note from Joan about the December Drawing Block:

The directions and a piece of white fabric for the lottery drawing block for our December Christmas party are available at Stitches & Petals in Moscow and also at Grammy G’s in Palouse.  If you missed the last meeting you will want to be sure to pick these up and make your block.  If you were at the last meeting and would like to make another one (or two) you may also pick these up.  I am encouraging everyone to make at least one block so that we will have plenty to give to the lucky winner(s).

One of the things to note - which I did not say at the meeting but it IS at the end of the directions - is that we are asking you to pin a 5” square of the blue fabric that you use to the finished block.  That way, if the block needs to be remade for any reason - or just a portion of it - the winner has the fabric to do so.

Palouse Patchers Christmas Party Info:

December 5th, 6:00 p.m., Latah County Fairgrounds

Potluck - please bring a dish to share - along with a serving utensil.  There are NONE in the kitchen.

Drinks, plates, utensils, cups will be provided.

Wear holiday attire - let’s all look festive!

Also, please bring a canned food item wrapped in a fat quarter.  Make that look festive, too. The food will be donated to a food pantry and you will go home with a new fat quarter.

We also have the last of Vicki Mitchell’s estate to distribute.  You won’t want to miss that.

And don’t forget to bring your lottery drawing block for your chance to win several! The block is easy and very striking (at least in my opinion).

Palouse Patchers Block Exchange Request

If you have won blocks in the past and either do not know how to put them together or just don’t have time, please bring them to the meeting and let someone else put them together.  Let’s finish all the effort of members and get those project completed!
