November 10th MLQG Veterans' Outreach Workshop -- Photos

Thank you Sylvia L. for leading MLQG members and friends in a great workshop making blocks for Quilts of Valor. (click on photos to enlarge)








Sylvia transformed a difficult block with Y-seams into an easy paper-pieced block!

A quilter's most important tool -- a seam ripper!









First block completed!


QOV in progress -- looking great!

Gmeiner Open Sewing -- First Monday of Each Month

Next Open Sewing Session
 Monday,  November 5th at the Gmeiner 10:00 - 2:00

All MLQG members of all ability levels and interests are welcome to attend the open sewing sessions at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center (where the monthly guild meetings are held) on Mondays 10:00 - 2:00 to work on any stitching projects, hand or machine, even knitting, crocheting, or embroidery.

The purpose of these get-togethers is to spend time with other MLQG fiber fanatics and to learn from each other, no matter what we're all working on. Bring your projects, machine, and lunch. Stay for an hour or stay all day. Just be warned that if only a couple of people show up, we may pack up early and leave before noon. Cancellations will be posted on the guild's blog/website/Facebook page.
