January Speaker

It's a fresh new year.  Great turnout for our speaker Sara Lawson from

Sara gave a great presentation on making bags of all sorts, from diaper bags, totes, carry alls and clutches with special attention to the types of interfacing used.  She brought a variety of bags to explain why she used different interfacings depending on the bag and her own personal preference.

Make sure you check out her blog for patterns, her book Big City Bags,  etc.   Knowing that we love to see quilts  Sara even brought one of her own to show us.  The text fabric was awesome.  Thanks Sara, for sharing your love of bags, samples and answering all our questions.


  1. A very fun evening, thanks for organizing. It has encouraged me to pull a UFO out - a bag I started making over two years ago!! my goal is to have it finished for our February meeting.
