The swap is also optional. You can make any holiday decor items you would like that fits in a small paper lunch bag. Do your best! But remember, our guild is full of all level sewists!
We also encourage you to bring a donation for Senior Services! You can bring common toiletry and household items. They love getting travel size toiletries. Canned and non-spoiling food are also great. We will collect cash and buy gift cards for them too!
See you Tuesday!

We have had an awesome summer of programs and fellowship. Christmas in June to benefit Senior Services provided gift cards and toiletries for local seniors. In July Tessa Walker was our guest and showcased her bags. August brought a representative form June Taylor with demos of a number of notions followed by a give away of the notion. September gave us an opportunity to meet Carolyn Friedlander with workshop opportunities at Sewingly Yours the following day.
The raffle quilt was awarded at the September meeting. Margie Lamb was the winner of the Lazy Sunday and Lee Monroe was the winner of the Day Break quilt. Thank you to all members who participated in selling tickets.
