Saturday's Christmas Sew Day was a blast. What most of our members liked about it was that they FINISHED things to take home.

We had a very good turn out and Jan did an excellent job demo-ing how to make the "Hot Dog" pillowcase and the "Little Quilty Gift" pot holders.

Had to keep our eyes open on Jenell - that woman went to town on her pillowcases.She had gotten some material when a business was closing out their fabric line and she was ready to make "Hot Dogs" for all of her little ones.

Incase any one ever needs a quick machine repair person - call on Lorraine - she had to take her machine apart so she could find out why it would not accept a new needle and she had it done and back together again and sewing with a smile on her face and awe from the rest of us - in a very short time.

Charlotte had a little help with her "Hot Dogs", Vevia's grandson Logan joined us for part of the day and he latched on to Charlotte and did all sorts of things to make her day easier. Logan helped shake - shake - shake out the pillow, dumped trash and wheedled out of Charlotte a future pillow case for himself. Have to watch those cute ones Charlotte, but thank you ever so much for not minding his help.

Finished projects - all in one day. This made Jan's Sew Day a big hit. And word is out that some of our members went home and did even more before the day was gone.

Rita brought in a quilt she has just finished the top on and now she has two pillowcases to go with it. Great pattern lay out.

Frances worked on her own version of Lisa's 35 minute quilt and has determined that if you do NOT have to iron - it may be an hour and 35 minute quilt. Frances did say that she can see why a jelly roll would work better as her repeats were often very close together. Thank you Frances for showing all of us your work.

And Rita brought in the finished top for the young man that his family experienced the recent fire. Lisa took it home and will get it quilted as soon as she can.

Thank you Jan for the wonderful patterns and demos and Hurray to everyone for making it an enjoyable day with friends.
