March 2012 Sew-Days


More or less once a month, the Canal Country Quilters meet for sew days, usually on a Friday and Saturday. Some folks come both days, full-time; others come for an hour or two here and there as they can. Pot-luck lunch and, as usually happens where quilters gather, lots of chocolate occurs.

Once in awhile, we may plan something particular for the sew-days: a charity project, for example, or a class. In March, guild member Mary taught a class on invisible machine applique.

Here’s our slide show for the March 2012 days.
