The TMQG will be using a May Chappell tutorial to make washcloth travel rolls for Senior Services. They have asked for 100 of them and Sew Original will host a sew in on September 5th so we can make them (or a project of your choice). The tutorial calls for washcloths (at least 10 x 10), Pellon SF 101, and grosgrain ribbon. The current Joann Fabrics flyer has a coupon for 76% off ribbons from August 1-3.
Another good sale for potential Christmas gifts is the Spoonflower 50% off fat quarter sale. The fat quarters are perfect for tea towels and Spoonflower has pages dedicated to tea towel designs of all types.
