November 2014

Twelve members and three guests were present for the November 3rd meeting.  

Jeanne asked that we send a "Reply" to the email announcing the meeting, so the program leader will know how many supplies to bring.  If we want to have lunch before the meeting, we also need to let Jeanne know in our "Reply" so she can make reservations.

"Textile through the Years" is the theme for the Cody Old Trail Town Christmas this year, and our TAGY group, along with Paintbrush Piecers' Quilt Guild will be decorating the museum building.  There will be antique quilts as well as our TAGY "Old Trail Town" exhibit.  Members are asked to contribute hand-made textile items for the Raffle Basket, as well as bringing cookies and/or breads to share with guests at the Open House.  Nothing too messy please. 

Marybeth  volunteered our groups to decorate a 12 foot Christmas tree at Old Trail Town, and asks that members make hand-made ornaments with items that would have been available in pioneer days. 

Friday, Nov 21 - We will decorate the museum and the Christmas tree.
Friday, Nov 28, 2-7 pm -  Old Trail Town will be open for visitors, and 
Saturday, Nov 29, 2-8 pm is the Open House, with cookies and drinks served.

TAGY will also be displaying our challenge quilts at the Big Sky Quilt Retreat in Billings, MT, March 11-14, 2015.  After Big Sky, the exhibit will be moved to the Plaza Diane in Powell for display from March 19 through the end of April 2015.

Many beautiful items were shown for Show & Tell.  We are reminded to finish our monthly challenges so they can hang with the exhibits mentioned above. 

The December 12 x 12 inch challenge theme is "What You Don't Know About Me"
The Christmas exchange theme is Peace/Piece.  
Remember, all challenges and the gift exchange are voluntary, so don't feel pressured to participate unless you want to.

This month's program was given by Barbara Harrison on fabric weaving.  She brought her hand-dyed fabrics to share, and everyone had fun cutting strips and weaving them together.
