In 2019: You can check here for programs, birthdays, who's turn for refreshments and to set up for the night; but you will need to go to

for updates and pictures on guild happenings.


It was a grand day to be together with friends and sew the day away.  UFO's were the go to projects if you did not do the quilt bag that Vicki was kind enough to come and teach us, again.  Thank you ever so much Vicki for the hints, encouragement and a fantastic day.
Sitting up always takes us a bit, you have to yak a little you know.

But then we all get to going as seen here with Carol S. and her flower blocks that she is making.  Susie held up one of Carol's favorites for us all to get a good look at.

Judy and Lorraine got right on ironing out all folds and getting their fabric ready for cutting.

Plugging in machines and then......
Vicki began with the instructions.

Erlene and Leila listened while they kept their hands busy on their projects.  Erlene had gotten this gorgeous quilt at a 2nd hand store, she had Susie quilt it and was putting on the binding.  Leila is working on some gorgeous blocks - SEWN BY HAND.  Wow is she good at it.

Susie was working on an alphabet block - Iowana had colored it and now Susie was embroidering it.

Vevia got in her tah dah - done!  Just as the camera went off.

Lorraine kept up the showcasing when she showed hers.

Verna Lee was being called away before time, but she did let us look at the fabrics she had chosen.

Jenell with her finished bag.

Jeanette was working on a kit that she had brought to do; however, wouldn't be surprised to see her with a bag soon - she listened real close to all directions.  AND - Vicki said give her a call if she got stumped.

Hayley jumped right in with her "tah-dah" stance, even has that "famous" foot up technique down pat.  The bag looks good too Hayley.

Vicki made herself another bag as she was showing us the steps - love those batiks.

And if you do not have enough reasons to make yourself a bag someday (bring quilts to Show 'n Tell in, put your groceries in, dirty clothes carted from college, etc.), here is another idea from Vicki - she brought her sewing machine in one.
At home, Mr. B. gave us a great laugh when we showed him our quilt bag - eyes bugged out and he asked real quick - "That's to carry a quilt in, not to go shopping?!  Right!!!!?"
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha  - there is another great idea!!
Looking forward to seeing all the finished bags in the near future!
