Hi Ladies - Last Saturday in spite of the Craft Fair going on, we managed to have a terrific meeting with fun show and tell projects that inspired a couple new demos to be presented by members - that's our goal every week, fun, learning, sharing, and definitely inspiration.

Show & Tell:

 Lois Rose - 2 wall hangings and a quilt - Lois had a short week! ha ha

Carol Riggs - table runners - beautiful variety and Owl

Becky Chianese - Christmas trees ensemble

Eileen DiSanto - baskets, quilt, tissue holder

JoAnn Colin - purse/tote made from 3 placemats, table runner, quilt in making

Nancy Cartlidge - Baby quilt, little pillowcases, doggie bed

Jane Swafford - in something other than Orange since Tennessee had a week off - table runner and Owl

Patty Cooke - Owl

Becky Chianese will demo her Christmas Trees Ensemble on Oct. 31st - you will need Christmas fabric scraps for this projects, or a Fat Quarter Bundle.

Linda Parr will demo her memory pillow project on Nov. 14th - you will need a mens shirt to make this project, along with "memory" items you embellish with.

I'll be showing sweatshirt conversions - couple options.  To make a jacket with the sweatshirt conversion techique, you want to purchase a sweatshirt one size larger than the finished size you want the sweatshirt to be.  

Make a Fabric Bag with tissue paper - terrific idea for gift giving - you need scraps like 18 X 22, etc., depending on size of "bag" you are making and tissue paper to coordinate/color matches fabric.

Reminder - NO MEETINGS - next Saturday, Oct. 24th and Saturday, Nov. 7th (Kay Flanagan's Memoral Service)

God bless you all,
