Ooops . . . kinda slipped up by not putting the September meeting on the net !! Yikes !!
It was a great meeting where there were 15 members and one guest in attendance. Even so, the charitable projects were abundant, with senior bibs, scent babies, fidget quilt, pillow cases, oh my, being turned in. Good job, ladies !!
There must be close to a dozen members of Blue Ridge Quilters who have Featherweight sewing machines and love them. The speaker, Mary Houseman, spoke about Featherweight sewing machines and also had displayed at least half a dozen of her (as it turns out, many) Featherweight machines. Her talk included noting differences between the many machines (who knew?), years of manufacture, features and functions, which was all received by a very rapt audience. Ms. Houseman indicated that she both buys and sells Featherweight machines and is available for information. Something we all found very interesting and just too sweet is that she also sews and makes little teddy bears – yes, with her Featherweight machines. Anyone interested was welcome to her sweet little teddy bear pattern, and several took advantage of the opportunity.
Following are photos of charitable projects as well as those participating in Show & Tell.
Thanks for dropping by.
