May 2021 - "My Favorite SewingThings".  We started off the program with a group sing-a-long featuring a well-known tune from the movie "Sound of Music".  Lisa changed the words to the song "My Favorite Things" to reflect our favorite sewing/quilting terms. What a great group of singers we have in our guild!  We had 37 members come to our May 10th meeting and everyone participated in showing or telling one of their favorite sewing things. Each and everyone had a different item to share from seam rippers to husbands! It was sew fun and full of valuable information! 


Our Favorite Things


June 2021 -  "Zoom" meeting with Judy and Judel Neimeyer.  Lisa wants to say a huge THANK YOU! to all members and guests who attended. Go to the  /members  section OR see your July newsletter for all of the dates for the Class/Video.  Visit to order your supplies.
