Monday was the Beginning Log Cabin, Part I class, and those who were signed up arrived by 9:00am. The drive through town was wet, dreary and foggy. In other words, a great day to spend sewing!
A lot of exciting things happened that Monday.
The biggest news – our grant proposal to fund a “mobile” sewing class that provides local Middle and High school students the opportunity to learn to sew/quilt, was awarded the full amount we requested! The money will go toward the purchase of machines and tools for the students to use in a hands-on environment, at their own school. This was made possible by Candy Gutierrez’s enthusiasm and dedication to getting young people interested in the art of quilting.
Oh, and it snowed that afternoon. I did not make the progress I should have with my log cabin block because I was watching the fat snow flakes blowing around – most of us were. Enough about the weather…
Teaching the class, were Joanne Padelford and Judy Allhizer. Some random photos were taken during class.
*Beginning Log Cabin Part II is scheduled for the end of May.
To add to Monday’s excitement – we had two wonderful gentlemen donate supplies to the guild.
Mr. Chris Walton: 2 large trunk’s full of thread and notions his mom-in-law, who was a professional seamstress, had.
Mr. Ken Archibald: 1 ft x ft swatches of fabric designs he used in his factory to make aprons. We were thrilled to take 50+ pounds of them off his hands!
Thank You for thinking of us :-)
