March Meeting Recap

Thank you to Beth Rowan who shared with us her Quilt Con demo, Sew Many Substrates. We loved learning about how to use other fabrics besides quilting cottons in our projects. We also loved all the gorgeous samples.

We also had a special visitor, Janita’s sister, Berene  (happy sew lucky)  if you want to add her to your instagram accounts and be inspired.) She graciously brought some door prizes with her. Lucky Us.
