September meeting recap

Dineke is a diehard hand quilter and she does beautiful work. She & Sue are basting a quilt together.

Lynne is one of our new members. She was so speedy with her own work today she had time to hand sew the label on to our guild donation quilt.

And here's the donation quilt - all done & picture going off to the local newspaper.

Isobel is making this very striking quilt for her grandson. It's a pattern by Bernadette - one of our members who is a diehard paper piecing fan.

Here is a quilt made from the half-squares the gals have been swapping for a few seasons.

This is one of Dineke's hand quilted beauties.

We had lots of the members sign up for both the Ugly Fabric Challenge and for the Secret Sister Swap. It should be a good year.

Get Ready for a New Season♦

Next Wednesday - September 9th will be the start of our new season.

For those who are interested, sewing starts any time after 9:30 - bring your stuff and your $5 fee. Knock off a UFO. Or make some placemats for Meals on Wheels. Some of us have NO interest in going home to make supper, so the church ladies cater for us - 6 pm and you must book with Monica asap. The charge for supper is usually around $12.

The general meeting starts at 7:30 for everyone. We should have tons of items for show & share since we've all been sewing for a few months. Goodness knows with all the rain we weren't outside that much. :-(

Everyone who participated in the DIRTY DOZEN CHALLENGE please bring your quilt. We want to have a proper show & share of the items.

We will also be having signups for the little groups, swaps, challenges, etc. These will all kick off at the October meeting.
