The morning started bright and early with lots of help from so many members.  The tables and chairs were all arranged and the guild supplied bagels with coffee and tea for all of the hard working members.   So many delicious desserts and goodies were brought in by members.  Cakes, cookies, donuts, Strawberries!!! BROWNIES!!!  (Susan – I want that recipe!)

So many delicious delights!  Thanks to all the member for their generous contribution.

Classes started at 9AM with a wonderful Petal Pouch by Lauren, a Decopodge glass plate by Jill.  Adorable Mitten Mug Rugs by Sheryl and a beautiful Trellis bed runner.

The work was quickly underway with lots of sewing machines humming along!!!

How quickly the day passes when we are sewing and enjoying the many friends we have in the guild.  Before we knew it, the projects were taking shape and lunchtime arrived.

A short break revealed more delicious salads and wonderful conversations among friends.

Before long we were back to work on our afternoon classes.  An all time favorite – the Market Tote by Lynne.  An adorable Pot Holder by Lori.  Microwave cozy by Dale and a card pouch my Madeline.

Lauren and Madeline arranged for us to have some wonderful raffle prizes.

The Fat Quarters Raffle was won by Carol N.

The GRAND Prize – a $25 Gift Certificate from Sew What’s New was won by Jill B.

The projects concluded fairly quickly, with many of us leaving with multiples of the completed projects along with smiles and lots of laughs.

Thank you, George O. for your help with arranging all the electrical cords and setting up the tables.  You make this event so much easier for all of us.

I would personally like to thank the committee for their hard work and for organizing this fun filled day of sewing.  And also the members for continuing to support the wonderful projects and ideas.

Applause and accolades to the committee, Lauren, Dale, Lori and Madeline for their  planning and execution of this wonderful event.
