Door Prizes for October 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 the October 20th meeting is a special meeting celebrating our recent exhibit, we are giving away more goodies this time (see photo above). The prizes this month are a plastic storage case, a Jim Shore figurine, two Snap Sacks with fabric, and a Comfort Cutter. All prizes will be given away and the price is still just $1/ticket!
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.
Again this month, an extra thank you goes to guild member Kelly Jackson of I Have a Notion for donating the 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.
