Member’s Showcase: Barbara Cleveland

Barbara’s favorite craft is making dolls. Each year, Barbara has at least one new doll to the Annual Heirloom Quilt Faire, making her (or his) début.

At our May 21st meeting, Barbara agreed to bring her favorite dolls to share, not only the beautiful dolls but their stories, with us.

Members Showcase: Lorene Lucas

Lorene brought in her quilt collection and wow’ed us all with her talent. Not only were they very beautiful, but they were the largest quilts I’ve seen outside of a quilt show.

I tried to take a photo of each of her masterpieces to post here, so our readers can see them. The usual disclaimer applies: The Photography Never Does Come Close to the Real Thing (PNDCCRT) Just foolin’ we would never use that acronym. That being said, Thank You Lorene for sharing your hard work with us!

Quilts appear larger when trying to fold
Lorene also makes Walking Sticks!

Spring Luncheon

Our Spring Luncheon on March 20th was a culinary delight (as usual), and a fun social.

Quilters line up to buy raffle tickets to put in a bag for certain items they would like to win. Yours truly usually puts all her tickets towards an “Ott Light” – a desk lamp to use when you are sewing/quilting. Another lady (who shall remain nameless) is also trying to win one. Neither of us has (yet!), but we have won a fun item or two along the way. The $ earned is spent on community donations, i.e., Ebbetts Pass Elves, the Food Ban
k,  Resource Connection, to name a few.
