2017 — CHRISTMAS PARTY and SHOW & TELL

Oh, what a fun time we all had at the 2017 HOF Christmas Party! We met at the Kirksville Arts Association building on South Baltimore at 6:30 on December 20. After a few brief announcements, several Show & Tells, the party got started!

The Christmas Party committee outdid themselves again this year! We had a wonderful meal catered by Baker’s BBQ of Kirksville, Randy Smith provided the musical entertainment, participants in the Christmas Exchange loved their “snack mats”, and everyone enjoyed the wild “cellophane ball” game. In fact, trying to unwrap that giant cellophane wrapped ball of gifts became quite competitive!

SHOW & TELL:

GAME: “Unwrap the big cellophane ball and get prizes before your neighbor rolls doubles and you have to pass it on”.

CHRISTMAS EXCHANGE:

The Christmas exchange was a new idea for the guild that Deb Freese brought from her former guild. Each person who wanted to participate was to make a small, “Snack Mat” (approximately 11’x14″) and place it in a unique, but ordinary, box. No wrapping necessary. It was fun to see everyone’s creations!

 

 

 

2016 December Christmas Party and Show & Tell

A fabulous time was had by all of those attending the Hands of Friendship Annual Christmas party. Check out the fun we had as we played “Strip Poker”using the Left/Right/Center rules. IMG_7585We used 2 1/2″ strips of fabric for “money” and screams of laughter could be heard from around the room as fabric was won and lost with the roll of the die.

Donations were taken for the Food Pantry and for Katy Fine Newman, a fellow quilter, who lost her home in a recent fire. Members filled a basket to overflowing of fabric and supplies for her. All fabric strips from the game were given to Katy, too.

A big “thank you” to the committee who put the party together and did the wonderful decorating. And thanks to Randy Smith for the beautiful music. The┬ácatered meal was awesome, too!
