Hi ladies! The November meeting is coming up on Friday and I'm so excited. It's about one of my favorite topics: machine quilting! Did you know that I used to teach a machine quilting class at Quilting Adventures? In all the years I taught it (it was a confidence-building class), I never met a sewing machine that couldn't do machine quilting. If you can drive a car, you can do your own quilting! And believe me, it's a wonderful feeling to look at something you've created and know you've done the ENTIRE thing.
In December, we'll be having our big end of the year festivities. This includes our round robin reveal, a silent auction and a gift exchange. Here's the scoop:
Round robin reveal: We finally get to see our masterpieces!
Silent Auction: Bring in something to be auctioned off (and be prepared to buy something if you can) to help earn money for the group! I've heard something about wanting to buy a bus, but I would settle for a projector, myself!
Gift exchange: Bring something you made (or something sewing-related if you just can't get it together to make something). Be sure it's wrapped! We'll exchange them during the meeting. Can't think of something? Here are some ideas: Pincusion, jewelry, coasters, ornament, cookies, ... if you have other ideas, leave them in the comments!
