Quilt Demos

Today's day group meeting was several demos, by quilters who just got back from a national AQS show, & they were showing some of the things they learned. Mary Gerkin (above) & Jean Ferguson (below) talked about "Snippets" from a Cindy Walters class.
Betty Bivens had a "quickie" demo on a reverse applique' technique.
Jan Wills talked about an applique-piecing method involving freezer paper & templates.
Jackie Carley showed some Angelina Fiber techniques, as well as Shiva paint sticks, & other embellishment things like Crayons, rubber stamps, & water color crayons. Jackie has loads of ideas.
Mary Lee demonstrated Foiling on fabric.
The Next meeting is December 4th. It will be the Christmas potluck. Bring a dish to pass & a wrapped gift to add to the door prizes. There will be fun & laughter, & nice little gifts on the tables, besides drawings. Some nice Door prizes from some of the local shops. Wear your holiday dress & come have fun with us. Doors are open by 1030, we usually start eating by 11 a.m.
There is always Show & Tell.
