A Friendship Group Tradition

Friendship Groups.
a very special kind of quilting group
I am a member of this friendship group
In December, we put on our 'Festive Attire'
We have a candlelight dinner by the roaring fire
And we take time away from quilting to remember
how thankful we are for each other.

It's time for our annual Holiday Party
5:30 champagne
7pm candlelight dinner

Please RSVP by leaving a comment below
(include which side dish you would like to bring)

I wish you could all join us, but as you can see...
there's just enough room

For the rest of the year, we meet monthly to have a restaurant dinner, and dessert at the host's home.
We share projects, techniques, fabrics, magazines, books, stories...
We share our lives.
Some of our members have been quilting together since their kids were born.
For those of you not close enough to a Quilt Guild meeting,
why not gather 11 other quilters
and create your own  friendship group?
I promise you, ten years from now, you'll be thanking me
for suggesting the idea.
Start your own traditions.
