Gail Brown replied to Beth A. North's discussion Stash Busting Challenge 2017 in the group A Quilting Bee
"I hope that this group will continue in 2018.  It's just what I need to get me in motion as far as reducing yardage and getting things under control.  A good way to get rid of a lot of yardage in pillow cases for charity.  Maybe…"

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then  you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December. 

This year we  had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.

So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!

Linda
