Clifton Sew Day a Big Hit
Saturdays' Sew Day in Clifton hosted by Bonnie Olsen was a spectacular day. There were 20 ladies that attended the four classes that were offered. Bonnie hosted the event from afar, but the work she had done before her hospitalization paid off. Susie started out the morning with Twilling. Susie had kits made up for everyone with a pattern already marked and needles in a really neat looking "match book" type of case.
Lisa presented the coloring segment with loads of information on how to, when, where, why and what to watch out for. There were some awesome patterns brought in that will be great to see all done.
Iowana showed us how you can get colors in a box of 120. Susie had found ones that twist so that you do not have to sharpen and that you can get a box of nothing but white crayons to aid in blending.
Lunch was provided by the members of the church, set up by them and cleaned up by them. Our thanks goes out to everyone that donated and to Nola and Glendora (excuse me if I spelled your names wrong) for being there all day and keeping the coffee, tea and water flowing. Free will donations were much appreciated.
After lunch, Vevia presented her class on flowers. Everyone started out with an easy prairie point leaf and then a bigger type. Followed by two types of flowers and many suggestions how you could change, add and what to use them in or on. Charlotte finished her ruching flower and put it with some hair clips she had and used it to gussie up her do.
Bonnie was to present the last demonstration for the day with options to finishing off a quilt. Lucky for us she had her prep work all done and we only had to pass out her handouts and go over her sample. What a gorgeous way to use an orphan block.
Thank you to everyone for making Saturday a fun day. Thank you Bonnie for all the planning you put into the day. Thank you to our three instructors for the kits they provided and the wonderful and easy way they presented their classes. Thank you to all our attendees for the pleasure you gave us as you learned these new techniques.
