2013- January

Hoo'll sew with me?  Ow'll sew with you!
This is our new theme for 2013
The board was spot lighted as the Who's Who for the month.  It was fun to learn a little about each one.  If you were not able to come to the meeting, talk to Timpi and get a forum to fill out so you can be spot lighted one month this year.
For the Charity quilts this year, we are going to sew together quilts envelope style for the FFA group to tie like we did last year.  This year we want to do 50 quilts.  They are going to be handed out at February's meeting.  Also There is going to be a quilt design coming up during the year that we will give to charity groups for children.  What a great way for us all to give back to the community.

Fun to look at all the fun things again. Marcia's 50 year old quilt is amazing! I think I need to make one. As soon as I get my sewing room under control. Debbie
