October Meeting Holiday Gift Planning

October 29, 2012

We had a great meeting Sunday October 21st.  At the meeting we had members present on different kinds of little Holiday Gifts.

Sarah S teaching us how to make awesome Drawstring Bags

Jen and Eileen showed us how to make Mug Rugs and Potholders.

Erika showing us her awesome t-shirt scarves (and how to make them).

Holly and her coffee sleeves.
Donna had a lot of ideas for card cases and sewing kits.
Tricia brainstormed some ways of making fabric storage.

Thanks to all of the members who prepared demos for our meeting I know we all learned a lot!  At the meeting we also started a gift swap.  If you would like to participate all you have to do is make a small gift based on one of the demos from the meeting and bring it to the December meeting where we will swap presents.  The presents should be made so as to appeal to any person in our guild (you are free to make more than one then you would receive the amount of gifts you made).

Check out some details on how to do some of the projects under the Files Tab on our Bigtent Site.

We talk together on Bigtent, it is the place to learn all about upcoming meetings and other activities among our members.  Join us!
