The meeting was a Make & Take Night with a Rag Basket project presented and instructed by Ruth Ann Assaid. There were 9 sewists and a lot of enthusiasm present !! Thank you, Ruth Ann for bringing this project. Our Treasurer, Louise Jargowsky was the first (and I think only) one to complete her project; she did a small basket of 30’s prints which turned out very pretty. Claire Hightower also finished covering her clothesline for a small basket. (Pictures nearby)
Also, there were quite a few participants in Show & Tell, including some from the 2-part Barn Quilt Class held in June.
