May Sewing Night

Last Thursday, we met at the Urbandale Library for a sewing night, which was in place of our regular meeting.

Eight of us showed up and worked on random projects. We chatted away and had a great time!

Here are a few of the projects that people brought in for show and tell.  Be sure to check out the Flickr site to see more!

May Get-Together is Thursday, May 17th

Tomorrow evening, May 17th, we will have an informal get-together, a Sewing Night, at the Urbandale Public Library, Meeting Room A, from 6-9 pm.

Join us to finish hand-sewing that binding down, work on embroidery, cut out a new quilt, or bring a machine and get some piecing done while getting to know your fellow members better!  And bring something to share for Show-and-Tell!

Mark your calendars--Our next meeting is June 21st, again at the Urbandale Library.
Janet Pittman will be presenting "Machine Applique, the Basics and Beyond" and Sherry Von Fummetti is going to provide us with some tips for working with monofilament thread.

**Don't forget: Our QuiltCon Challenge blocks are due at the JULY meeting... could be a good thing to work on at tomorrow's sewing night...
