Whether you made the quilt, purchased it online or it is a family treasure, share the beauty of your quilt with the community.
Share this event with friends and neighbors on social media and invite them to show their quilts as well - this is a community event.
Hang the flier on your mailbox, share it with your neighborhood list serve, SPREAD THE WORD!
This event will be advertised in The Roanoke Times calendar of events and in a news article. Please share with your friends and neighbors.

Annual Holiday Potluck Party
Join us for a virtual Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 7 at 7:00 pm (our normal Monthly Meeting time)!
Since we will be online only, we have to be creative with our gift exchange again this year. Watch your email for a notice of pick-up times and locations for your TQP holiday goody bag and our gift exchange. HOLIDAY GIFT EXCHANGE - If you'd like to participate, we will be swapping fat quarter lollipops! Start looking now for 1-3 fat quarters that you'd like to exchange. Instructions for how to prepare your fabric for lollipops will be included via email with our drop-off days information. We will have several days available in November for you to stop by to drop off your fabric lollies and choose new-to-you fabric. At that time, you can pick up your TQP holiday goody bag which includes materials for playing games during our virtual party. (Accommodations will be made for those who cannot make a pick-up day.)
There will be plenty of time to laugh, share stories,
