Sew Day, August 20th, 2011

We had a good turn out for the August Sew Day.

There was a feeding frenzy over donated fabric. 

As usual there was an abundance of food, chatter and laughter.  Everyone had projects to work on. Some worked busily while ...

August Sew Day

Don't forget this Saturday, August 20th is Sew Day!  As usual, we will meet at the Dr. Phillips/Southwest Branch of the Orlando Public Library from 10am to 4:45pm.  
You know the drill:  Leave a comment if you plan to attend and what shared item (extension cord, cutting mat, food, iron, ironing board, etc.) you will bring.  Hope you can make it as Sew Day is always a great day!
