December Potluck Meeting Notes

Greetings and Merry Christmas to all,
A brief summary of the short business meeting at our December Potluck follows.  A wonderful evening of conversation and laughter with amazing show and tell to keep us inspired, not to mention the amazing variety of food.  
We now have 54 members.  Welcome to each of you and please e-mail me for information or answers to questions you may have. 
January spin-ins and knit-ins are listed in the minutes as well.
There is no meeting in January and the February Meeting begins at 10 a.m. with Fibres Unlimited to follow in the afternoon.  
Goodies for the February meeting are provided by Gudie and Bea.
I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday season with wonderful surprises to help us keep our sense of awe.
Best wishes,
(No computer so this iPad version will have to do)
