Door Prizes for September Meeting
MLQG members who have been coming regularly to monthly meetings know that we have a door prize drawing, but new members may not be familiar with how this works.
It's fairly simple -- at the start of the meeting, a basket is passed around and members who wish to participate are asked to take a ticket, drop the matching one in the basket, and contribute $1 for each ticket. The winner is drawn later in the evening. Normally, there is one prize given away each month, but since September is MLQG's birthday month (16 years this year!), we are celebrating and giving away more goodies this time (see photo above). The prizes this month are a bundle of three Halloween fat quarters, a Moda "Papillon" charm pack, a couple of tweezers, titanium topstitch needles, a seam ripper, and flower-head pins. The fabric prizes include a spool of thread.
Guild members who buy a ticket (or two or three) help support the various activities that the guild provides. Even small fundraisers like this help to keep costs down for everyone. Thank you to all who have purchased door prize tickets in the past and who will continue to do so in the future.
And this month, an extra thank you goes to guild member Kelly Jackson of I Have a Notion for donating the five non-fabric prizes in this month's drawing. If you need some quilting/sewing supplies, be sure to check out Kelly's online store for great prices.
