The Ladies with the Curves!

Our October meeting program was great- we learned a lot about sewing curves. Although a daunting prospect to some, I'm sure we all left with much more confidence for tackling curved seams. A big Thank You to the five "presenters' - Gail Butts, Jean Ketch, Gail Mitchell, Linda Glassford and Donna Young. Among other things, we learned how to sew a basic curve, how to add piping to a curve, how to "face" a curve so it could be appliqu├ęd, how to use glue basting to sew a circle into a circular opening, and how to use the curved two patch system. Here are a few photos, if you missed the meeting.

I will soon be posting some reminders for our November meeting, so come back soon for the details on  1. our UFO Challenge,  2. Christmas placemats for Meals on Wheels, and 3. our continuing Community projects - due at Nov. meeting: quilts for babies. See guidelines here.
