QuiltCon and Our Members!

Our very own Hot Tamales are ringing in the 2013 New Year with bells galore....
For those of you not glued to Facebook....we have some news!
Allison Chambers, Jen Eskridge, Leslie Tucker Jenison, and Sarah Jimenez will all have their quilt works up for display at Quilt Con!  Whoohooh!  Ladies, way to represent San Antonio and your fellow quilters.  Those of us going can't wait to see your creations!  Congratulations on making it to the big league!  (Feel free to browse a few of their blogs annotated on the right)

Well I hope all of you are having a wonderfully blessed holiday season and sharing it with those you love.  As you know, many people will be asking you what your New Year's resolution will be.  Where does 2013 find you?  Where will this year take you?

There are certainly no shortages of Hot Tamale happenings, so get your calendars ready ladies....

*Sue P. will be collecting the next payment for retreat goers at this Thursday's meeting, so have your check books handy.  If you're not sure about your balance, please give her a call or message her on Facebook.

**Kelly P has scheduled a charity sew in at the Northside Church of Christ on Saturday, January 12, 13 from 10a-3p.  We will be working to complete a charity top for QuiltCon from the squares they sent us. It's due in Austin by February 1st!  We will also be completing children's quilts to send to the rescue shelter at Jeremiah's Hope Rescue Shelter. We are hoping for at least 6-10 people.  More are welcome, but please RSVP on Facebook so Kelly has a headcount.

***Eileen has scheduled a sew in at Memories by the Yard on Saturday, January 19, 13 from 10a-3p.  We ask that you bring $5 and a snack to share.  Bring any projects you would like to work on, and please remember to RSVP on Facebook, so Eileen will have a headcount.

****Swoon Bee will resume at my house on Sunday, January 20, 13 from 12-4p.  I haven't touched my blocks since we met in October, so I hope you all haven't finished.  

Happy New Year and especially happy sewing!
