The August Meeting will be held at the Sewing Studio on August 4th, from 10 AM until 12 Noon. We will replace the Saturday Sew day in August with a field trip to the Quilt Shop of Deland on Thursday, August 26th. We will meet at the Shop at 10 am. http://www.quiltshopofdeland.com
Rene did a demo of a Reduce, Reuse, Recycle quilt. This type of quilt is also called a Confetti or Ticker Tape quilt. Scraps were shared and a number of people choose that as their project to work on for Sew Day.
Show and Tell and Door Prize
Julie showed us two beautiful quilts she was making from a combination of commercial fabrics and clothing from her grandmother. The door prize was won by Barbara.
