Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

Carol & all
Thanks for the nice welcome. I know I will truly enjoy everyone here.
It has only been a few hours as a member and I feel at home. Thanks for bringing sunshine to my day.

Hi Betty, Welcome to the group. You will find out really fast that this bunch talks about anything and everything. Of course, some of us talk more than others! (Me included). If you have any questions, just ask. You will get plenty of answers. Pretty soon you will be online more than sewing!

Hey Everybody, If you look in to Hearts and Faces Connect group you can scroll down and see a photo of some of the fun we had at Retreat this last weekend. I know it doesn't look like we did anything but have fun. But, we also got a lot of sewing done. I will post mine as soon as I get a chance! Carol

Well, Mari, we were just waiting for you to come back. And I can't believe I told you that one of my nicknames is Pickles. Oh well, too late now. I am busy cross stitching a little piece for my sis. Her theme for the year is flip flops. I started doing theme gifts for her a few years ago, and it s fun. I have a pair of flip flops with monkeys on them for her. And I am thinking of making her that quilt that Fons and Porter made with flip flops all over it.
Well, Howdy, Betty, you don't have to understand anything with this group! Just listen to queen Mari's direction, and do what you want! I hope things get better for you. I don't think we need to give big gifts anyway. Just some nice hand made things, like you said.
Happy quilting!

Hello! I just joined this group, I pray I can understand it all, sound like a wonderful group. Michigan has 12.5% unemployment, I have internet for my little job, Hubby off almost a year, so I am hear to get info on the gifts. I need to plan because I know I won't have extra income to purchase big gifts. Quilted hand made gifts are welcome by everyone

Hello Everyone! I'm off today but thought I'd peek in to see what was going on and I see that Princess Di is whining again! Well, you can do that when you wear a crown. Yes, Mary, she may get unwanted attention! Or, is that possible???? Hummmmm UNWANTED ATTENTION! I don't think so!!!!

It took my last order 3 1/2 weeks! It is in Canada someplace but not here yet.That's O.K. ladies I have to have something to whine about.

Francine and Diane: Amazing how our perception of time has changed. Less than two weeks for something to arrive from across the country would have seemed like a miracle to our grandmothers. Meryl Streep was in a movie with Shirley MacLaine a while back and a friend's favorite line from it was "Instant Gratification Takes Too Long." So, what I did was cross stitch it onto a sampler for him. Anyway you've given me the incentive to order August's book.

Princess Di: Mari is right you are allowed to do whatever you want. I'd just suggest you watch out for speeding paparazzi (or however you spell it).

Diane - my order always takes a few days shy of the two week period - but you are closer then me .... hope for you you get it soon have a great day everyone
