President’s Message

Hi Everyone,
I’m making friends with my sewing machine, rotary cutter, etc. I hope you’re enjoying some “stay out of the cold time” too!
Our February meeting will be a trunk show by our member, Linda Radzminski. She has an extensive antique collection so it should be very inspiring.

In addition, I will be giving out packets for our raffle quilt and giving a small demo about paper piecing the Jaqueline de Jong way. Please see me if you can take a few packets and help on the quilt. The packets have been prepared with only a small amount to work for each. If you take a packet, I’ll need them back no later than the March meeting. Please only volunteer if you are comfortable with paper piecing. The kit purchased gave very little extra fabric so there’s not too much wiggle room. I ask that you do the piecing, but do not trim the outside. Again, see me at the meeting.
This month’s words to live by:

I am still determined to be cheerful and to be happy in whatever situation I may be, for I have also learnt from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions and not upon our circumstances.
Martha Washington Happy sewing and I hope to see you at the February meeting.
