I finally made my way to the local quilt guild on Monday night. The Ritzy Thimble is the guild in Oak Ridge, TN. They are a new guild with 70 members and currently closed for new membership (due to limitations put on them by the rental room they use monthly). I'm on the waiting list and hopefully will be a member in Janauary. I was easily amused at how this guild is no different to the guilds I've been to before. Same type of ladies, just different faces. My friend who invited me felt the need to apologized for how the meeting ran and told her not to worry, I've seen worse and felt right at home. Granted I think I was the youngest person in the room!
The meeting had several wonderful quick gift ideas for the holidays, so I think I'm going to pull out some stuff and "whip" up some gifts this weekend and get my holiday groove on!
