We are meeting twice a month for sharing, learning and sewing! I am feeling so grateful to have a group of folks who think like me! Who love to make things and are powered in their life by fabric, thread and the whir of their machines.
Yesterday was our May Sew In. We had three new members sewing in, a brand new member drop in to sign up, and we got to meet one of our original members (who lives a few hours from the city) for the first time! It was an amazing day.
But what really touched me yesterday... this
Linda, of Scrapmaster fame, made this Pillow to thank me for starting the Guild. Look at this amazing creation. She made with with scraps from a Sew In we held at her house and she pebbled it like crazy! My favourite. And how about my initial quilted in the middle! So cool.
I am not a religious, or even a spiritual person, but I am feeling blessed to be meeting and getting to know such amazing people.
So with a spring in my step, I am off for a week of travel around the Province for work. But in my suitcase I have some HSTs for pressing and trimming and some super warm feelings about this great quilty weekend.
How do you connect with quilty folks in your community? I would love to hear about it.
