August, 2018 Guild Meeting- Our Annual Brown Bag Extravaganza!

WOW!  The 2018 Brown Bag Extravaganza Was the Biggest Ever!

 Every year out members clean out their sewing spaces and find treasures that need a new home.  They donate their seldom-used quilting and craft items.... and then the fun begins!
Our fabulous Brown Bag Committee toils for months to prepare for the evening.  Nancy and her team group, sort, and label the goodies and set up tables of silent auction items, "ticket and take it" items and  the ever popular brown bag items.  We purchase tickets and  "spend" them by purchasing "ticket and take it" items and put them in brown bags next to items they hope to win when tickets are drawn from the bags.  

 It seems that this very popular event grows bigger every year. We have our wonderful guild volunteers to thank for that. A BIG THANK YOU to Nancy and all who assisted her! The hard work payed off. Members and guests had loads of fun and went home with loads of treasures.                                                                                      

It's never too early to start thinking about next year.  Why not put a bag in the corner of your sewing space and place items in it throughout the year that you no longer use?

See you all next year!
