October Meeting!!!

Don't forget about the October meeting tomorrow night!  Last month sure did fly by!  We have some great things planned for this meeting so you won't want to miss out!

Our presentation this month will be on Sewing Summit.  If you have never heard of Sewing Summit, it's a modern sewing conference held in Salt Lake City, UT every year.  One of our very own members went to the conference this year and was a teacher!!!  Jessie will take some time tomorrow to present her experience.  You won't want to miss it!

Don't forget about the great challenges and swaps that are happening this month as well!  We have the Tote and Treat Swap and the One Yard Rip off Challenge (with any solid).

So things to bring to this month's meeting:
1. 1 yard of a solid of your choice.
2. A tote that is filled with treats for the swap.
3. Your finished project with your dots from last month's OYRO. (There might be a prize available!)
4. Any quilt blocks you have completed for Alberta's Hope.
5. Show and tell!!!!

I think that's about it.  I hope to see you all tomorrow at Stitched With Love at 6:30pm!
