(Due to the holidays, November and December meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of the month,) Meetings begin at 7:15 p.m. However, it is a tradition for members to come early to socialize, browse our extensive library, or check out the various activities. Doors open at 6:30.
General Meetings: Our General meetings consist of business and announcements followed by Show & Tell. After a short refreshment break, the remainder of the meeting is reserved for our featured speaker. The speakers for the next several meetings will be listed below.

A night of shopping and fun you won’t want to miss! Bring your friends and bring items to donate to benefit SFQG.
There will be something for everyone in all price ranges. Cash and Carry (no bidding - just buying!) Live Auction(see a couple of teasers below), and our ‘new since last year’ Silent Auction. It was so successful it has beenincorporated into the format, I hope, on a permanent basis!
Our donation wish list:
- Cash and Carry: quilting supplies in good condition, patterns, buttons, and thread, etc.
- Silent Auction: handmade items (knitted, crocheted, quilted, collaged . . . the list could be quite impressive), equipment in new/very good condition, books, gift certificates, jewelry. Contact Kenan Shapero with questions. email@example.com
- Live Auction: show stoppers and one of a kind items and experiences (e.g. event tickets, tea party or sewing class). Please bring other kinds of quilting-related items (e.g. UFO’s, blocks, and of course, - clean, neatly folded, fabric, fabric, fabric, bundled and marked with the quantity.)
At PIQF, we are advertising our auction as well as our December Book Sale and Make and Take event. We hope to have lots of visitors shopping with us. Remember – Opportunity Quilt raffle ticket stubs are good for free admission to one of our meetings. So, sell or give your friends a raffle ticket and bring them to our auction for a fun night out.
Antique quilt – 68” x 70”. Donated to our Guild, this hand pieced and hand quilted beauty was probably made between 1865 and 1885. The history of the quilt comes with it – 6 generations of women who have passed it down through the ages. It is in extremely good condition; the colors are still bright; it has minimum staining on the back. A lovely piece.
Due to what seems to be a sad lack of interest on the part of the SPCA, Judy has decided to donate “Who Let The Dogs Out” (94” x 94”) to our auction. Those who purchased raffle tickets in August will receive their refund at the October meeting.

BOOK SALE and MAKE AND TAKE
Last year's Make and Take was so much fun that we have decided to do it again this year. Be sure to arrive early because the Book Sale will start at 6:45. We will pause the sale for the meeting at the regular time and resume after Show and Tell. We have three fun projects planned for the program portion of the meeting:
1. Checkerboard Quilt Cards with Cathy Miranker; perfect for those special snail-mail correspondences using die-cut cards and 3/4" wide decorative paper strips;
2. Fold and Flip Coasters with Gloria Miller. A clever way to make the perfect coaster for stemware and use up your scraps
3. A fast, fun creative reuse project with Monica Lee and Dorothy Yuki. Monica is the artist in residence at Ruth's Table and Dorothy has been a design and production consultant to the fashion industry and designed and made home and gift products for her own business, In Good Company.
