Yankee swap slated

Members of the Fairfield Glade Fantastic Quilt Guild will enjoy a “Yankee Swap” at their monthly membership meeting scheduled for Friday, July 19, from 9 to 11:30 A.M. in the Fellowship Hall of the Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church.

A “Yankee Swap” is a variation of a white elephant  party. In this case, quilters are asked to prettily wrap a gently used quilting or sewing related item (or group of items) for “gifting” in the exchange.

The Yankee Swap fun comes from the different “rules” by which gifts are distributed are imposed. Every quilter who contributes a wrapped gift will receive a gift; the mystery and competition which accompany the gifting process create the fun.

In addition to the usual business meeting, members will receive a progress report on the Quilting in the Schools program. Fat Quarter fabrics for the monthly drawing are “Blue and/or Purple Batiks.”

Show and Tell and the Fat Quarter drawing will conclude the meeting.

Guests are always welcome and encouraged to get acquainted with the Guild and its many activities.

A different kind of paper drive slated

Just pick up an extra package or two when you find them on sale and drop them off at Helping Hands Ministry on Peavine Rd. If you want a receipt for tax purposes, come during our office hours.

If you are late or early put them in our red drop box! It’s a simple thing but remember  food stamps don’t cover toiletries or paper products (and Sears doesn’t give out free catalogs any more). Save the small samples of soap, shampoo etc. from your travels this summer—for some people it’s all they have to keep clean.
