February 2011

Saturday Sewing Day this Saturday Feb 12th at Town and Country Presbyterian Church.  Linda is bringing bean soup and Marcia cheese and crackers to share.  If you plan to attend, please consider bringing a side dish to pass...

Here is a note from Amy to catch you up to date with past and upcoming events: 

Greetings to all,    Hope the big snow is not getting you down,  keep your head up SPRING WILL COME!

We had a great time at the January over night.  Although no one slept over several sewed on Friday night and there were 12 members there on Sat.   Chris D. made some great barbecue and everyone else brought food to share for lunch.  

Some worked on "Quilts of Valor" and some worked on their own projects.  Marcia has batting she will sell the guild at $3.00 a yard and backing for $2.00 a yard for the Quilts of Valor.  If you are working on one and will be quilting it contact her to make arrangements to get batting and backing.    We saw lots of neat projects during Show and Tell.  There was a good discussion about having demo's and guest teachers along with our new more relaxed meeting and sewing time.  Many felt there was no reason we can't have both.  If you would like to do a demo or have a suggestion for a class or teacher let Amy know so we can work on it.

I am looking into a play or musical we can attend as a group for a fun outing.  "A Day About Town" or something like that was suggested, would anyone like to plan this, maybe for spring?  Talk about it at the next meeting. 

Our next meeting is February 28th Cathy V will open the church and former president Pam will preside over the business discussions.  Chris Daly will be doing a demo about adding piping to borders. Linda is bringing treats.
