Our next meeting is November 1, 6:30pm at Stitched with Love. Social time will be from 6-6:30. We can’t wait to see you!
Pillowcases to Return?
If you were kind enough to pick up a pillowcase kit from Sarah during our October meeting, she's needing to get those back asap so she can take them with her to market this weekend to give back to the fabric company! You can drop them off at the shop or e-mail Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to arrange something else.
November Program: Pinterest Party!
Are you itching to make some holiday gifts but don't know where to start? Do you have an awesome gift idea from a free online tutorial you'd like to share? Or maybe you don't have any ideas, but you'd be happy to try something new? This party is for you!
At our guild meeting on November 1, we invite each of you to bring something you've made from an online tutorial (free tutorials only please!) or something you've chosen from this pinterest board https://www.pinterest.co
m/ellynz/gifts-free-tutorials/ . Please let Ellyn know what you're bringing and send a link to the tutorial (email email@example.com) so she can make up a master list of links for everyone to take home.
Let's get inspired and make some gifts!
Challenge: One Yard Ripoff + Paint Chips DUE NOVEMBER!
Create something (anything!) with the fabric from the rip off and the paint chip you chose (or, Alice says you can pick any paint chip that delights you).
