October Meeting featuring member Sarah Lowry

Our meeting, Tuesday night, will feature member Sarah Lowry and her "Improv" quilting technique.  Sarah has created some beautiful artistic quilts and will be sharing her quilts and her process with us.  Meeting will be at 6:30 at South Fork Community Center.

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.
