Helen F. is in charge of our magazine, book, and pattern sales. Members donate these items which Helen displays on tables at each meeting. Members may purchase any item for $0.25. Many members find this a great way to "recycle" their materials and often "re-donate" when finished with the purchased item. 

Jeri handed out bags of lace at the 2/10 meeting. Contact her if you would like to join in.

2019-2020 Activities

Secret Sisters

Led by Fred

Want to add fun and mystery to your Galico Meetings? (Get It? Gals + Calico = Galico!) Join Secret Sisters. This year's theme is "These are a few of my favorite things." Get to know your sister and find out a few of her favorite things.

It's not too late to join. Please use the form on the left to contact Fred and get signed up!

Doreen is offering two block exchanges, both running from Nov 2019 thru May 2020. Members may participate in one or both exchanges. Participants will make a minimum of 2 blocks for their selected group(s) each month and bring them to the 2nd meeting of the month. Doreen will sort the blocks and each participant will go home with two blocks made by others. At the end of each exchange, participants will have 12 different blocks. This is a great way to practice your skills or get a head start on getting a quilt top made! Use the contact form if you have questions.

Kay R. is in charge of the UFO effort in 2020. The fee to join is $5 and you may join at any time during the year. For every completed UFO brought to Show and Tell, you got "1 credit." For example, if you showed 5 items at a meeting, you get 5 credits meaning your name gets entered 5 times. Each credit is a chance for you to win the drawing at the end of the year when a name is pulled from the jar. The winner gets to take home 90% of the total fees collected and the club the remaining10%. The more completed UFOs you shared, the higher your chances of winning!  

Note: You get to decide what "finished" means for your project.

Kay lets Marci draw the name of the winner for 2019, Ardell L.
