Summer to Fall Review

It has been too long since I posted and my apologies.  Had a busy summer, my computer died and I have had to get used to a new Mac laptop - always used Windows in the past.  I have figured out how to upload my photos etc. so am back online again.  We have had fun at our latest meetings exploring some modern techniques and working on our own projects.

In August we worked on our free motion skills making sample sandwiches and trying different free motion designs.  Everyone seemed to let go and channel their inner free spirit.

September was Wonky Mystery Bags.  Everyone received a brown bag with a tutorial and scrap fabric to make a different type of wonky block.  For some it took a lot of will power to give up the rules and just be wonky.  Everyone received directions with credit given to the bloggers for their tutorials.

October was a free sewing session with participants working on their own projects and socializing.  We discussed November's speaker, swap ideas and holiday plans.

See you in November for our speaker.
