Updates and Reminders...

Thanks again to The Women of the Cloth who gave our meeting program last week. Jean K., Deanna M., Marg W. and Cathy W. did a great job showing us what they had done with a combination of Sashiko and Origami-type techniques to make flowers from folded fabric. Their inspiration was the book "Folded Flowers" by Kumiko Sudo. You can see their blocks at right and below. Thanks also to Gail B who could not be at the meeting, but did send along her block as well for our viewing pleasure. Great program, ladies!

Just a few reminders - most importantly, please get your entry forms in asap for our April Show. The deadline is rapidly approaching (March 31), and we would like your info sooner rather than later...
