Happy Holidays and on to 2018!

The Holiday Potluck in December was filled with delicious food, fun and games ornament exchange.  We had wonderful show and tell items and storytelling fun and beautiful poinsettias.

some of our Show and Tell projects!

At the January NCN meeting we will be working on making the 2018 Raffle Quilt. Members have signed up to help be cutters, sewers, and pressers.  Please bring your items for the various stations.  If anyone has a 10 1/2” square ruler please bring it as well. Sounds like a fun night of sewing with lots of friends - all hands on deck!

Upcoming Events 

2017/2018 NEORQC Shop Hop -  We’re so excited about the NEORQC Shop Hop! Join quilters from all over the North East Ohio area in our new shop hop venture for 2017-18! Car pool with your friends and visit a wide variety of quilt shops. What better way is there to introduce yourself to new quilt shops, reacquaint yourself with those shops you may not have been to for awhile and say “Hello” to those shops you visit frequently. NEORQC has added a little fun!

Each time you visit a NEORQC quilt shop, ask a store clerk to initial or stamp the back of your card! Bring your completed card, with six initials/stamps, to the general meetings, put it in the hopper and we’ll dray names. Drawings will be held at October, March and June meetings. Completed cards may be turned in for a new card.

Names will stay in the hopper for one year - then we’ll dump the names and start again! You must be present to be a winner! Download and print your Shopping Card from the NEORQC website
