This was the first meeting for this season. It was great to see so many familiar faces, along with some new ones as well. We all shared the loss of one of our very active, long time members, who died in a summer boating accident. She will be missed by everyone.
We had a great turn-out, tasty snacks, over 50 new items in our library, and a wonderful display of quilts from our community quilts group!
We played "Strip Bingo" with over 400 x 2 1/2 inch strips for prizes!
There was lots of show and tell quilts shared with the group, as well as a new block of the month project to try. The pictures of the quilts will be shared on the guild's website over the next few days.
I've been trying to work, but a work crew is installing new storm sewer lines a block away, and the pounding noise of the drill is very distracting! They don't call Kingston "the limestone city" for nothing! (Really it is because of all the buildings made from beautiful limestone). As my sewing room is in the basement, the sound is the loudest here, of course. I hope they get finished soon......
