Getting ready to show



We want to do an exhibit of our quilts; there's a lot to be done to get this sort of thing off the ground.



Last week we had a photographer come to the rec center where we meet to take pictures of our work, in order to make a CD that we can submit with applications.

That's the first step - next we will find a venue!

That's how it bee, sew forth and sew on ...

I am sure that more Ellie’s will be popping up in 2015.

Presentation:  Patricia King presented a Signature Quilt to Carolyn Burgess at our November meeting with these words:

To: Carolyn, a friend and fellow quilter, we love and cherish the  time we spend together.  I could not  think of no better tribute to make to you, than  to use your own words.

“Often we don’t say things because we always think we have time to say them.  Then after that someone is gone we think specifically about that person and think of so many things we could have, should have or would have said.  We’re going to say them now while we’re all here and can benefit from the words.”

Carolyn was so surprised she did not even no we were even presenting the quilt to her.
