Welcome to Quintessential Quilters!


Thursday, December 14, 2023 – 6:30 PM at:

Covenant Baptist Church
5100 Dierker Road
Columbus 43220.

Potluck: December’s QQ Meeting will be our Christmas Potluck, therefore the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Please give the Potluck Committee time to prepare the church sanctuary by not arriving before 6:15 p.m.“The main meat course and a vegetarian main course will be provided. Bring a hot or cold dish, salad or dessert and the serving utensil for it. Because of food allergies, please also label your dish accordingly. Be prepared to take home your leftovers. Table service is provided. As usual, bring your own drinks for dinner, but, at our request, Kathi Machle is again bringing her famous Christmas Wassail!  As an incentive to be in a festive holiday frame of mind, (lights are optional, of course) those of you in delightfully outlandish Christmas attire will receive a special seasonal surprise.

Ornament Exchange: Another QQ tradition, is an ornament exchange. It’s optional but if you want to participate, please bring a handmade ornament in the wrapping of your choice. Place your wrapped ornament on the piano and we will draw numbers. (Please select a handmade ornament, it doesn’t have to be made by you!!)

We will have the drawing for our “From our Hearts” Exploding Heart group quilt, so be sure to return sold (and unsold) tickets and the money. You can still purchase tickets online until a few days before the meeting –  https://app.galabid.com/qquilters2023/items/
