FQG Christmas Social 2009

The Fredericton Quilters' Guild had their Christmas Social last week. The program committee worked all fall on making this a lovely social event for our members. The gathering room was decorated beautifully, and dimly lit. The tables were decorated with lovely table cloths and candles. Each place was set with a homemade gingerbread man, packaged and tagged for safekeeping.

During the course of our evening, we heard from three of our members who told of their Christmas experiences when they were young. This was very heartwarming, entertaining and informative. Everyone related and thought about the simplicity of Christmases past.

Many members brought in special Christmas decorations from the past and told stories of why they were special.
Joyce told us of her memories of her mother making hundreds of these Christmas Stockings.
LaVerne and Jean brought in the same tree top decoration but their memories were years apart, and very different.
Linda brought one of her many favorite angels that was given to her as a gift from a very close friend.

Of course, we had Show and Tell quilts from our members, which gave us lots of inspiration until we meet again in January.

Again, thanks to the Program Committee and the Social Committee for a very memorable evening.

Watch next week for the fabulous Gingerbread Man recipe from members of our FQG Program Committee and more pictures from Show and Tell.
