January 2017 Meeting

Greetings, club.  We had a low attendance for the first meeting of the year;  the bitter cold temps kept some folks at home  and  some are now snowbirds for the winter.

I decided to take some photos of members during our meeting.  Some have a bit of blurr, as they are moving about while I'm shooting them.

January Program

Stephanie presented our program for January.  She came so well prepared, patterns, fabric, quilt sample; but  sorry that her program was cut short since the meeting went overtime with discussions of craft tables and the upcoming quilt show.

She shared this charming Welcome Banner pattern and encouraged this as a project for Saturdays sew day.  If you missed the meeting, I'm sure Stephanie will have some extra copies of the pattern with her on Saturday.  You are still welcome to work on anything you want.  Bring your troubled projects,  we love to interfere       help.

I am having a terrible time with blogger today, trying to get the photos placed where i wanted them, it didn't work and I gave up the ghost!  The pics are scrambled, but you can still check them out.  Remember to click on a photo for a larger view.


Jan 21st     ..................    Sew Day at EUM

Feb 2nd    ..................     February meeting

*** Don't forget about the  "Spring Challenge" project.  It will make a lovely display at our quilt show, so I hope there will be lots of participants.   Details:  due in March,   a quilt made of 3 layers, quilted and finished,  anything that reminds you of spring, is the theme.  It must be no smaller than 24 inches square and could be any size, even bed size.  It must be an item made after the challenge was announced (April 2016).

Bye for now, hope to see you Saturday.
