December 2:    ***6:00PM December Christmas Party 6:00PM ***

via ZOOM

 Let’s ROCK this social distancing stuff and have a great time together with our quilting peeps on Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:00PM. What time?? 6:00PM. Laurie Baker and Amy Lister have a fun evening planned and you’re invited! One of the best perks of being home for the Gems Holiday Event is that you can wear your jammies! So put on your comfy fuzzy pants, sloppy slippers, or whatever crazy holiday gear you care to wear for our Zoom get together. The other best perk is its BYOB. Grab a hot chocolate, mulled cider, or even some true holiday spirits and settle in for some giggles with the Blues Brothers, goofy games, ornament demos, a famous recipe, and a cozy fireside story with Santa Claus. But wait….there’s more! We will also give away, a free Gems membership, to celebrate our 30th anniversary as a Guild in 2020 to one lucky member. The Gems Christmas Party finale will be the raffle ticket drawing for the amazing raffle quilt “Timberline Log Cabin” by Lise Mundwiller and Sue Krause. Also, please be sure to have some paper and a pencil handy for our goofy games segment. We are looking forward to seeing everybody there! HO! HO! HO!

Throughout the year, work is done on service projects and annual raffle quilt.  Monthly workshops and quilt challenges are offered to members as a means of developing and improving quilting skills.  Some of the workshops are devoted to service projects while others are given by members or by well-known teachers.  Gems puts on an annual quilt show that showcases 300-400 quilts.  Please refer to the Quilt Show Tab for the date of the Gems of the Prairie Quilt Show.
