October Meeting

All of our hard work making quilts, receiving blankets, aprons, doll clothes, place mats - just to name a few - were displayed.  WOW - were we ever busy!!  These items will be donated to the Primary Children's Hospital Festival of Trees event.  Our group really enjoyed making the items as we know they will be going to an extremely worthy cause.

Christmas items and show and tell 

Members brought items they were making for Christmas and many brought finished quilts that they started at the retreat and earlier.  We also are pleased to announce that Kathy Hurst has agreed to head our 2017 quilters!!!  Thank you President Hurst!!!  Members all agreed to help her as needed.

September Retreat 2016

Another wonderful time at the Canyonlands Lodge on the Blue Mountains.  It was a smaller crowd this year, but a great time was had by all that attended.  Many quilts and projects were completed over the 4 days of stay.  Cathy Cosby taught the rhombus cube method and many completed this easy and quick quilt.
 Our beautiful Lodge!
 Gail works on weaving a rug in the early morning sun.

As always there was wonderful food, good visiting and lots of sewing.  We will be looking for a new retreat place next year as the owners will be moving into the lodge.  It has been a wonderful place for us for the past 6 years - it will be missed!!  Hopefully we can find another place just as wonderful!  Our October meeting will be held at the library.
