November 2016 Meeting and Show and Tell

The Monday meeting of the CMQG was attended by 66 members and was "officiated over" by Joan B.

A topic covered during the meeting was the Cool Cat Pyjama Bag that many of our mini retreat participants made.  These PJ bags were made with the help of Joan and the pattern was an original by Gerri Richards in Quispamsis NB.  A fun project during the November retreat. They are so cute and were all lined up on the piano in the small boardroom.

Great display everyone.

Aren't they CUTE? And so individual and colourful, each one!

After the meeting we had Show and Tell.  It was a large S&T by many talented members, so I hope that enjoy it through the photos!
