Are you ready for a great bus trip with some of your friends from Omaha Quilters’ Guild?  We’re going to the Missouri Star Quilt Company!  Hamilton, Missouri has become a quilter’s paradise. A dozen beautiful shops line the main street, enticing restaurants provide the opportunity to purchase lunch, and there’s always something new to find! At MSQC, there’s plenty to love. Shop in specialty stores dedicated to seasonal fabrics, primitives, Civil War and 1930’s reproductions, gorgeous batiks, colorful solids, fresh modern prints, and much more!

Bus trip price is $75 (OQG members) or $90 for non-members. A $25 down payment is due when registering and the balance is due April 10th. (Deposit is non-refundable, unless the trip is completely cancelled by the OQG.)
There will be a raffle, fat quarter exchange and other activities available during the bus ride. One raffle ticket will be credited to you when you registered, and an additional raffle ticket will be credited to you every first of the month between registration and the actual trip.

Our annual Holiday Party was held tonight and a good time was had by all!  Wonderful to see so many smiling faces and all the wonderful donations for the Children’s Emergency Fund.  Here are a few of the Wonderful Pictures of all the Stockings. The illustrious Roberta Willet once again came through for the win!  More pictures to follow.

It’s time to gather your friends and reserve a table for our annual Holiday Dinner on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.  The dinner is at the German American Society and you may arrive as early as 5:00 p.m.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.  Each ticket is $25 for the dinner.  We had to increase our ticket price as we have not had a price increase for at least four years and the cost of the dinner and venue have continued to rise.  There are many activities happening during the evening such as Santa’s Workshop where you can put tickets in to win prizes.  We also collect Angel Bags that members and friends have filled with gifts for children.  The evening ends with a live auction of items that are made by individuals and/or groups that follow a theme.  This year’s theme is leaves.  We always have a fun evening and we hope that you will join us.

Tickets will be available at the October and November Guild meetings.  Carol McCann will be selling tickets after 6:00 p.m. at the October Guild meeting.  Angella Arndt will be selling tickets after 6:00 p.m. at the November Guild meeting.

We look forward to seeing you for a fun evening!
