Island Quilters Guild – Two Great Meetings!

Lauren MacDonald
December 15, 2021

Well, we started off our quilt guild year a bit late (October) and our meeting limit is 32 with vaccination requirement.  But we have had 2 great meetings and at our last meeting in November (December’s meeting had to be cancelled), we enjoyed a great fashion show organized by Freda.  We could wear or bring any home made project, so we saw sewing, quilting, knitting and crochet items.  Then our BOM leader walked us through making a lone star block and gave us some fabric strips.  These will be sent to the Quilts for Survivors groups.  Then we had a wonderful show and tell segment of the meeting.  We planned a catered appetizer meal for our December meeting, but the local Public Health has severely limited our attendance so we cancelled.  Some of us also enjoyed a great Sew Day at a local township hall.  We all just brought our own projects to work on.  If you take a look at our  blog, you’ll be able to see our latest newsletter and some photos –
