Our First Meeting Of 2014

Most of our members attended the latest guild meeting. We have switched to meeting during the day for January and February. This enables us to come in before the meeting for sewing time. Also some of us stay after the meeting for a time to continue our sewing. Also, it beats driving home in the dark on snowy roads.

Our featured member this week was Sue. She is a life long resident of the area, a former teacher and is an amateur photographer. Be sides quilting and purse making, she also has made smocked garments for her children in the past.
