By now, I’m sure you’re all into the swing of fall. Thanksgiving and Halloween are behind us and we’re heading way too fast into the Christmas season. I expect you have all been busy creating beautiful quilts and other interesting items.
I attended one of our Sew Days in October and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I can’t wait for the next one! We received a suggestion to have a Sew Day on a Saturday to accommodate people who work Monday to Friday. I’m happy to tell you that we will be scheduling at least one and possibly more!
At our Executive Meeting we had a very fruitful discussion about things we could do to keep our guild fresh and interesting for members. One of those ideas involved a “Demo Hour” at Mainway prior to a scheduled meeting. It would be held in the Marketplace area and hosted by one of our members who would demonstrate a particular project or skill. We immediately had someone volunteer to demonstrate how to make Bowl Cozies, and this will likely take place at our April Meeting. Now to find members who know how to make Jelly Roll Rugs, create oven mitts or aprons, build home made ironing spaces, sew a great table runner, etc. And, of course, these would all count towards the President’s Challenge.
