Sew Thankful Weekend

Twelve guild members enjoyed a weekend of sewing UFO's, charity projects and Christmas gifts.  The community was invited to see demonstrations of making place mats using the "shuffle method" with four fat quarters of material.  Kathy brought bolts of material donated by Riley Blake to be used for items to give to Primary Children's Hospital next year at the Festival of Trees.  The guild was so exited by this project that they planned a "Charity Sew Weekend" in February.

Community members stop by to see the demonstration 
on making place mats. 

The possibilities are endless!!
Even Deb's grandson, Cooper, 
joined in the sewing. He learned
to sew at the 4H Quilt Camp.
