The guild had a blast kicking off Summer 2023 at our June party. 43 members attended and we welcomed visitor Margie P.! We are super excited to announce several new members joined the guild: Carla B., Erica D., Ruthanne W., and Carol P.
All enjoyed yummy lunch of pizza, lemonade and ice cream! The party decor was pretty in pink with flowers and smiley faces everywhere! Members got a little wild at the photo booth with lots of giggles! Check out the joyful photos below (more fun photos can be viewed on facebook members page and instagram JAXMQG)
We had a table full of adorable member made pin cusions! Everyone had fun selecting their pin cushions and now have the perfect party memento!
There was a lot of socializing and epic game playing!
Deb B. was excited to be the big winner of our L R C game! We can’t wait to see what wonderful project she makes with the load of amazing fat quarters she won!
Laura B. won a fat quarter bundle for having the lucky sticker behind her flower pin! She definitely likes that bundle!
Stephanie D. also won the 2nd longarm service generously donated by Jennifer R. Woohoo!
Ta-Tas !!! Members made 50+ PINK paper pieced bra blocks that will be made into a future MD Anderson charity quilt!!!
