That’s a Wrap!

Normally, in December, we have our annual holiday party where we enjoy good food, friends, and our ornament exchange. This year, Covid put a bit of a damper on things and we weren’t able to meet in person. But, since we were meeting virtually, we decided to do a regular show & tell along with our ornament exchange. But, before we did our show & tell, we had a very special surprise. Throughout our anniversary year the board has surprised members with some fun things, and December was no exception.

Sarah Ann Banton 1833 – Antique

Shelly M. and Michelle L. surprised members by showing an antique sampler in Shelly’s collection that she graciously allowed Michelle to chart for our 2020 guild members. Michelle created both a reproduction of the sampler as well as a slightly smaller adaptation. What a beautiful sampler, and what a fun grande finale for our twentieth anniversary celebration.

Our December (virtual) gathering was a lot of fun and we look forward to what the guild will do in 2021. Our January meeting will be our MAGIC Reveal – where we check in to see how everyone did with their 2020 MAGIC projects. And of course, we will also sign up for MAGIC 2021. See you then!
