We're looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend for our last meeting of 2016!
Following are some details for the meeting since it's a new venue for DCMQG:
Saturday, December 3, 9 am – 3 pm
Lyon Village Community House
1920 North Highland Street
Arlington, VA 22201
Robin found this great new space for us to use (Thanks, Robin!) and has provided the following info to help set up for Saturday:
This is a big community hall with lots of space and a full kitchen. The location has easy access from GW Parkway, Route 29 and Route 66.
(Important to note: there is also a Lyon Park Community Center --- this is NOT where we will be! Make sure your GPS is headed to the right location!)
Parking: There is a small lot and also abundant on-street parking within two blocks. There is a circular drive in front and a side door so you can drop off your gear and then park. And while we're on the topic of sewing gear: Remember to bring your Extension Cords (in addition to all your usual stuff)!!
Food: Bring food for a potluck or venture to area venues which include: The Italian Store (not the Westover one, this is the original store), BGR Burger Joint, Sweet Green, and several other places within a mile.
Timeline: We start at 9am (earlier than usual since we end around 3pm, also earlier than usual). Around 11am there will be the holiday swap. We are asking for those who want to participate to bring something homemade, or something quilty/handmade related (valued at about $10). Maybe some fat quarters of fabric, notions, or a fun quilty calendar. It can be funny or serious, holiday related or not. We want this to be fun and we will be playing the yankee swap game rules where people can steal the gifts they choose.
After the swap, we'll do a brief business meeting and show & tell session before we break for lunch.
Charity Quilts--Last call for 100 Quilts for Kids. Please bring your quilts for Alyson.
DCMQG logo T-Shirts--Pick up available for those who ordered.
NJ Pouch Swap--Pouches available from your NJ partner.
Swag--DCMQG totebags in purple or black available for purchase ($20).
BONUS: The Board has a small gift for all members that comes with an optional challenge!! Come on down and get your quilty bonus! ;-)
We hope you can make it out to the Lyon Village Community House this weekend! Let us know if you have any questions!
